Can any Houstons please stand up?

United Airlines launches the first non-stop Australia-Houston service on 20 January 2018. To celebrate, the American airline is giving away free flights on its inaugural flight to any Aussie named Houston.

It doesn't matter whether it's your first or last name, all Houstons are eligible to be in the running to win a spot on the plane. If you know one, tell them because they can bring a travel partner with them.

Altogether, five Houstons and their guests will be flown up, where they'll spend five nights in the city getting to know their namesake. On top of these flights, the prize also includes 4-star accommodation and a Houston City Pass to use during their stay.

To be in the running, Houstons must explain in 100 words or less why they would like to visit Houston, Texas on the inaugural United Airlines flights.

Entries must be submitted to UnitedSydneyHouston@edelman.com by 9am AEDT 27 December 2017.

The winners will be notified by email the following day, so don't forget to include your contact details in case you win!

Conversely, five lucky "Sydneys" in the US will be flown on the inaugural flight out of Houston to Sydney on 18 January 2018. So if you know a Sydney halfway across the world, tell them to join the sweeps to win a trip Down Under.
