GERMANY. A Frankfurt resident has been named the winner of the major prize in a Gebr Heinemann-led competition to mark the inauguration of the Heinemann Duty Free retail brand at Frankfurt Airport Terminal 1B.

Pamuk Nippert was awarded one year of free flights with Lufthansa, through a competition that began last December with Gebr Heinemann and Miles & More, the Lufthansa frequent flyer programme.

To enter the contest, passengers were invited to write their contact details on paper planes and then try to fly their planes through one of four targets. Apart from the top prize, entrants also stood the chance of winning discount vouchers entitling them to savings of up to -50% in the Heinemann Duty Free store.

Pamuk Nippert was presented with her prize – a paper plane to symbolise her year of free flying – by Retail Manager Richard Hoyer, Karl-Heinz Dietrich (Chief Representative at Fraport AG for the Trade/Leasing Management Area) and Marc Borgstedt of Miles & More. She also revealed her first travel destinations: “I’m planning a trip to Istanbul, and my husband and I would like to go to New York for a belated honeymoon.”

In related news, two winners of a Heinemann campaign held in all Gebr Heinemann Travel Value & Duty Free shops in Germany between August and September 2009 also accepted big prizes.

Leonid Shmerkin and Michael Jarosch each won one million Miles & More premium miles, having presented their Miles & More cards in-store when making purchases at Gebr Heinemann locations – their names were subsequently chosen in a prize draw.

“A trip to Prague is top of my list,” said a delighted Leonid Shmerkin. Michael Jarosch said: “I’m going to go travelling with my girlfriend and our son. We’re also building a house, and we still need some nice things for the home.”
