FRS Iberia: 20,000 euros for the 20 millionth passenger
The FRS shipping company celebrated having reached its 20 millionth passenger since the start of its operations in the Strait of Gibraltar back in 2000. The winner of the € 20,000 awarded by FRS was Awatif Laguelil, a French-Moroccan from Casablanca who is 38 years old and the mother of two children. She was travelling with her family from Tanger Med to Algeciras in order to return to France. “We've travelled other times with FRS, but I never imagined that I could be passenger number 20 million”, she said with excitement. Additionally, the winner noted that she still could not believe that she had won such a “very significant prize”.
When the prize was awarded aboard the Tanger Express, also in attendance was Samid Ghailane, a well-known Moroccan personality who livened up the trip for everyone. FRS stated that it is proud to be able to wrap up this campaign that brought visibility to the more than 20 million people who have trusted the company over the past 17 years.
