    Question to or for?

    Hello,

    Which is correct "to" or "for", in this :

    1- Azores ...for business

    or

    2- Azores ... to business

    I would say the first is correct, is it not so???


    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Best regards

    Filomena

    Welcome to the forums, Filomena. It would be helpful if you posted a full sentence in which you want to use those words.

    Re: to or for?

    I have a similar question.

    The other day, I saw a big newspaper advertisement for an airline. It said:

    "BEST CHOICE FOR BERLIN."

    It was telling people in Los Angeles that if they were planning to fly to Berlin, they should choose that

    particular airline. Could the preposition "to" also work there? (P.S. It was an advertisement from a foreign airline. Of course,

    its advertisement could have been written by Americans -- or not.)
