Cologne Bonn conquers Part I ‒ Now choose Cake of the Week Part II – Vote for the victor from 32 culinary creations from S17 launches

With 529 votes, Cologne Bonn Airport carried away (bags…geddit?) victory in the S17 Part I Public Vote for Cake of the Week. With a far from miserly 442 votes, Newcastle Airport was beaten into second spot. In total, nearly 2,200 votes were cast in last week’s competition.

Article 50 – pah! We had 51 Cake of the Week and Arch of Triumph entries from airports around the world last week to mark the start of S17. Unlike the months of negotiation that lie ahead for the UK and EU politicians and bigwigs, our decision on the Part I winner was over in just seven days. With 24% of the vote, Germany’s Cologne Bonn Airport saw off Newcastle Airport from the UK (which also finished second in the Arch of Triumph Public Vote), winning by less than 100 votes. Every cake received at least one vote, however the top three (#3 was New Orleans) commanded 58% of total votes.

Route launch and baking airport (underlined) % of votes
Wizz Air Cologne Bonn to Craiova and Tuzla 24%
Ryanair Newcastle to Madrid 20%
British Airways London Heathrow to New Orleans 14%
Wizz Air Debrecen to Tel Aviv 8%
Blue Air Liverpool to Hamburg, Milan Bergamo and Rome Fiumicino 6%
SAS Copenhagen to Riga 5%
Lufthansa Frankfurt to Santiago de Compostela 5%
Ryanair Glasgow to Lisbon, Valencia, Palanga and Zadar 4%
Flybe Edinburgh to London Heathrow 4%
airBaltic Riga to Odessa 2%

Even more cake-tastic! Just when you thought that you could have a rest…WHAM!…there are another 32 cakes for you to evaluate in terms of airport marketing prowess and culinary excellence – six more than were sent to us last week. Count yourselves lucky we don’t have to do this every week!

This week another 32 cakes will battle it our for airport marketing supremacy – six more than were sent to us last week. As well as cakes, we have been flooded with new route FTWAs in Part II of that competition – see our FTWA vote here.

Just like last week, the rules are very strict: you have to get as many votes as you can to win! How you get these votes is of little concern to us, as long as it is legal (or you don’t get caught). So if you want your new route cake to win, get everyone in your airport/airline to vote, get it shared on Facebook, and get re-tweeting! N.B. The airport names which are underlined are the bakers of the cake(s) in question. The vote closes at 17:00 (GMT) on Tuesday 11 April and the results will be published in next week’s newsletter on Wednesday 12 April.
