Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks brought a bite of the Big Apple to the streets of Belfast this week with its very own spin on the legendary Carpool Karaoke.
Passersby outside Victoria Square couldn’t miss the iconic yellow cab and two of Northern Ireland’s favourite personalities Pamela Ballantine and Julian Simmons who invited people to take part in Carpool Cab’oke and jump onboard to sing a famous American themed song for the chance to be the winner of a pair of return flights to New York.
The event was held to celebrate the first ever seasonal flight from Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks to New York from Belfast International Airport on Thursday December 14
Local ‘singers’ belted out a range of songs including the smash hit New York by Frank Sinatra, Born in the USA by Bruce Sprinsteen and Surfin’ USA by the Beach Boys.
Each Jet2Cabaoke participant is in with a chance of winning return tickets to New York, but first had to impress with their vocal skills! Pamela Ballantine and Julian Simmons picked their favourite crooner of the day to be entered into a public vote on Jet2.com’s Facebook page to win the much coveted tickets. With Jet2Cabaoke taking place in seven other cities across the UK, the competition to win tickets will be tough.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “We enjoyed a great day in Belfast where the standard was certainly varied, but the enthusiasm was brilliant throughout! Our dedicated trips to New York are always in demand, and with our first ever trip from Belfast International Airport this year, we are seeing a great response. We can’t wait to see who the public choose to win their place on these trips of a lifetime.”
In total there are over 6,800 holidays for sale across a range of iconic 3-5 star hotels in great New York locations. They include the popular Yotel New York at Times Square and Wellington Hotel, plus 20 new additions to the programme including Hilton Times Square, Sofitel New York and Loews Regency.
