Final week of LAX agent incentive kicks off

It’s the fourth and final week of the LAX Airport and Discover L.A. training incentive, and the prize of a trip to Los Angeles is dangling like a carrot, just out of arm’s reach. You’re so close!

The four-week very mobile-friendly incentive, which so far has included three new training modules and a quiz each week, is back for one last round.

If you haven’t completed all your quizzes to date, jump onto the training platform and get up to speed because this is your last chance to enter!

This week’s module looks at what agents and travellers can expect from the future of LAX, from ground transportation to terminal upgrades.

To prep yourself for this week’s final round of questions, watch the two videos below on the developments planned for the future of LAX before completing the quiz. No reading module this week, it’s all about these videos:

You must complete the questions in the one sitting, because the quiz is not only based on your overall score, but how fast you finish it, so be sure to watch these videos first.

When you’re ready to test your skills, you can log in and begin your quiz here.

To remind you, the incredible prize includes:

  • 1 x economy flight to LAX (from BNE, SYD or MEL)
  • 3 x nights accommodation at the new Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport LAX providing comfort and convenience at L.A’s closest airport hotel
  • 1 x Starline Hop-On-Hop-Off Los Angeles City Tour bus ticket
  • 1 x Go Los Angeles Card® with up to 30 included iconic attractions
  • 1 x Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood admission ticket
  • 1 x 12-month Qantas Club membership with access to their Los Angeles Business Lounge, where you can huddle around the communal fireplace and enjoy a Neil Perry designed menu with a Californian twist

This is your last chance, and we’ll be announcing the winners next week once we’ve tallied up scores and speeds.

Last week’s individual winner was Kim Scurr from Your Travel and Cruise NSW – congratulations! You’ve scored yourself an American Tourister luggage and who knows, you could be our final winner 😉

Stay tuned for next week’s announcement, and a big congrats to all our agents who’ve slogged away to win big. You talented bunch, you!
