Surprise others with your photos, and be sent a gift yourself.
Give someone a Smile as an Austrian Airlines wichtel – and bring the world into your home!
Wichtels are the elves who help load Santa's sleigh with presents – and wichteling is when Austrian children exchange gifts secretly every Christmas time! Nobody knows who's giving the gifts, and nobody knows what they're going to get – but that's half the fun of the game!
So if you like exchanging gifts, and you like foreign countries too, then you've come to the right place! With Austrian, you can now get wichteling with new friends around the whole world! Just take your personal photo and wichtel it to an Austrian Airlines fan selected at random. Then you'll get a picture back too! But the big question is who – and where in the world – did it come from? You may be surprised! As well as that, you can get and give away "Smiles" with every photo. These Smiles mean you can automatically participate in our prize draw, and win some great prizes.
As top prize, we'll be giving away one pair of Business Class tickets for an Austrian long-haul flight to the participant whose name is picked out in a prize draw. The names of all participants who receive 50 or more Smiles will be entered in the prize draw. As well as this, we'll be giving away 10 vouchers worth €50 each to participants who receive 30 or more Smiles, 5 pairs of Business Lounge vouchers (for 15 or more Smiles) and 5 pairs of DO & CO à la carte vouchers (for 10 or more Smiles), to be used on your next Austrian flight.
So what are you waiting for? Get wichteling!
