Vote for your favourite Fire Truck Water Arch ‒ S18 Part I

Its Part I of the S18 Arch of Triumph public vote. There are 27 FTWAs vying for the most important adornment to any airport fire station wall in the world. How airports get their votes is of little concern to us, perhaps you could enlist the help of the disgraced Australian Cricket Team Captain Steve Smith to keep voting for your FTWA over and over, as he clearly now has some spare time on his hands.

Unless you have been totally transfixed by the wedding plans of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for the past few weeks, most of you will know that this week marks the start of S18. See our detailed analysis of the early S18 season here. The beginning of the (northern) summer season sees a lot of the world’s airports splashing the marketing dollars/euros ‒ and that also means lots of new route cakes ‒ see our Cake of the Week vote here. But it also means a lot of Fire Truck Water Arches (FTWAs). So we are giving you, the reader, the chance for the ninth time (the first time we did this for FTWAs was back in S14) to select the best of 27 FTWAs we have been sent this week from airports around the world. The victorious airport will have the accolade of winning a peer-endorsed, reader vote for the prestigious Arch of Triumph award rather than what we do in a normal week, when’s four elite water arch judges decide. 

As with the Cake of the Week competition, 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 FTWA to win, get everyone in your airport/airline to vote, get it shared on Facebook, Linkedin, Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat and get re-tweeting! The results will be published in next week’s newsletter. N.B. The airport names which are underlined are the creators of the FTWAs in question. Keep voting!!

Before we get into this week’s competition we have a winner from two weeks ago – Rzeszow Airport in Poland. The proud firefighters were: Marcin Baran; Krystian Dobrzański; Józef Ciasnocha, Platoon Commander; Mariusz Szpytma; Maciej Szpunar; Tadeusz Piestrzak (holding the Arch of Triumph certificate); and Kazimierz Baran, Section Commander.
