Glasgow Airport is urging people across the city to proclaim ‘J’aime les selfies’ with the launch of an exciting new social media competition.

Over the coming days, the airport, in partnership with Ryanair, will run a competition on twitter and instagram to give away two free tickets to Carcassonne in France. 

Ryanair, which opened a new base at Glasgow Airport in October 2014, will launch the new route to the French town on 1 April 2015. It will serve the holiday hotspot with two return flights a week throughout the summer.

To be in with a chance of winning, participants should post on twitter or instagram @GLA_airport with a French-inspired selfie, using the hashtag #myfrenchselfie.

Glasgow Airport will announce the lucky winner via twitter and instagram on 24 March.

Steven Marshall, Marketing and Customer Insight Manager at Glasgow Airport said:

“Everyone is excited about the launch of this brand new route, which is why we’ve decided to team up with Ryanair to launch this fun selfie competition.
