Yep, you read that correctly.
As it turns out, some people have gotten very nostalgic for the act of flying since lockdown. Not the holiday, but the flying itself. [Featured image: Singapore Air, Instagram].
And, Singapore Airlines are set to scratch that itch for the people. By October, they hope to run flights that start and finish at the very same airport. You’ll get the full three-hour flying experience and just go back home afterward.
This initiative came about from the results of a survey by the Singapore Air Charter. It found that 75 percent of a 308 people survey would pay for flights to nowhere. It even found people would be willing to pay up to $288 for an economy ticket, and $588 for a business class seat. Yep, really…
No exact details have been confirmed yet, but the airport hopes to launch the scheme next month. While it may have garnered some excitement, there are also concerns about the environmental impact of this, let’s face it, very “non-essential” travel.
Let’s sit back and see how this one flies, eh?
