Low-fare carrier Frontier Airlines has joined with Visit Orlando to make it easier than ever for consumers who #LoveOrlando to visit America’s favorite vacation destination. If your first name or last name is “Orlando,” you can enter to fly for free to the Central Florida destination in October.
Specifically, people named “Orlando” are eligible to receive a $250 Frontier Airlines travel voucher for a free (up to the $250 covered by the voucher) flight to Orlando International Airport (MCO) between October 13 and October 20. Those who meet the above requirements and would like to travel during the eligible dates, must complete an entry form at this link.
The entry period begins September 29 and concludes at 11:59 p.m. (MT) on October 5. Frontier airlines will then contact entrants to confirm eligibility and provide the flight voucher.
Just how many U.S. residents are named Orlando? Between1880 and 2018, the Social Security Administration has recorded 47,501 babies born with the first name Orlando in the United States. Among the most famous are actor Orlando Bloom, comic Orlando Jones, baseball player Orlando Cabrera , wrestler Orlando Jordan, and football player Orlando Pace. That’s more than enough people named Orlando to occupy the territory of Turks and Caicos Islands (United Kingdom) with an estimated population of 44,493 (as of July 1, 2012).
And that doesn’t even count the number of Americans with the last name, Orlando. In 2010, the U.S. Census Bureau surveyed 12,586 people with that last name.
Additionally, now through October 5, Frontier is accepting entries for a one-of-a-kind prize package that includes a four-night hotel stay at a Wyndham Orlando Resort International Drive plus activities at Andretti Indoor Karting & Games Orlando, Icon Park, and Topgolf Orlando; as well as an Enterprise rental car.
