Singapore Airlines is exploring the possibility of offering scenic flights from Singapore, well, to Singapore. A survey recently found 75% of citizens would be willing to pay for a flight to nowhere, just to get back in the air and experience one element of travel again. A spokesperson said “SIA is considering several initiatives that would allow us to continue engaging both our customers and members of the public. We will make an announcement at the appropriate time if we go ahead with these plans.”
The flights would reportedly be about three-hours in length and include all the elements of a “real” flight including meal service and access to the KrisWorld in-flight-entertainment library. Singapore Airlines has not indicated what aircraft might be used, but has indicated such flights could begin as early as October.
The state of Singapore has offered citizens travel credit, which Singapore Airlines hopes could be applied to these flights to nowhere. In fact, Singapore Airlines is exploring options to bundle packages that include limo transports and hotel stays with its flights to nowhere.
EVA AIR of Taiwan is already offering flights do not actually leave the ground.
