Air New Zealand invites rugby fans to 'Show us your #Squad'

Air New Zealand is encouraging rugby fans to snap photos of themselves with their very own 'squad' during the Rugby World Cup, for a chance to win a trip to New Zealand.

To take part consumers can either pay a visit to the airline’s #Squad van, which is touring the UK, or capture their own photograph. 

Those who opt for the latter will be required to share the image on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook with the hashtags #Squad and #CrazyAboutRugby. It’s important that they also tag Air New Zealand, so that the All Blacks' official airline can view the entries.

To provide members of the public with some inspiration for their own photos, Air New Zealand took the All Blacks around London to capture their squad poses in the lead up to the campaign. A selection of images can viewed via the Air New Zealand Facebook page.

The competition is now open, and entries close when the tournament concludes on 31 October. One lucky winner will be contacted by 13 November. In true squad style, they will have the opportunity to take up to nine friends with them on holiday to New Zealand.

The Coca-Cola London Eye was lit up by former rugby players last night (15 September) to celebrate the Rugby World Cup, which begins on Friday (18 September).
