The big finale will take place on Friday April 21st with Doireann, Donncha and Carl, broadcasting the 2FM Breakfast show live from Shannon Airport from 6.00 to 9.00am. 

Campaign details

Across the week multiple winners from all four shows will win amazing flight tickets from Shannon Airport by playing The Phrase that Pays. Each day one lucky winner will qualify for the grand finale. 

The four qualifiers from the week will then battle it out, live on air from Shannon Airport, in a game of Lucky Luggage, to win the ultimate prize of a three-night break to Chicago. The prize will include flights with United Airlines, hotel accommodation in the heart of the city, free parking at Shannon Airport and passes to Shannon’s Boru Executive Lounge for the ultimate start to the dream holiday.
