The competition was fierce among the four animal contestants vying to be featured on a Frontier Airlines plane tail: Central Florida Zoo’s Ella, the Florida black bear, Gatorland’s Larry, the American alligator, SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium’s Ted, the logger head sea turtle, and Wild Florida’s Flurry, the albino hatchling alligator. In the end, slow and steady Ted, the sea turtle, garnered the most votes and will be featured on a new Frontier Airlines aircraft tail.
The contest was designed to promote visitation to the Orlando region and highlight some of Florida’s iconic animal species and conservation efforts. Each facility that participated provides visitors the opportunity to view amazing Florida wildlife and learn about programs designed to protect them. Consumers who voted during the promotion were entered into a drawing to win free flights on Frontier, which operates more nonstops from Orlando than any other airline.
