Welcome to the 2019 Business Travel News year-end quiz

Once again a very big thanks to Rod Simpson of  AIR-BRITAIN  for helping to put this quiz together and to our main prize supplier, easyJet, for the first prize of a return flight for two anywhere on its extensive system.

Also on offer by Crécy Publications Ltd  are three prizes of any of its aviation titles, £100 to spend in any of the numerous resturants and shops at the airport www.gatwickairport.com/at-the-airport/shopping-eating, three Business First return tickets on the Heathrow Express, a pair of Plaza Premium passes for the T5 lounge  at Heathrow and finally three copies of the commemorative book LONDON CITY AIRPORT – 30 Years Linking the Capital, written by BTN editor-in-chief Malcolm Ginsberg.

Treat the quiz as a bit of fun and point out the website to your friends. If you decide to enter, don't worry that your answers may not be complete. You can be sure others are having the same struggle. But you must be a registered reader to submit an entry. It's FREE. (We do not pass this information on to third parties). We have 40 images this year, but we have some supplementary questions worth double marks.

The tie-break is very simple: "Which is the best terminal at Heathrow and why?" But in 10 words or fewer.

Please send your numbered answers to quiz@btnews.co.uk  together with your answer to the tie-break.
