The travel slump is so bad that Singapore Airlines is planning to offer flights that literally go nowhere

We’ve heard of long drives where one travels to nowhere in cars only to return to the same destination. And in providing customers a similar yet upgraded experience, Singapore Airlines is all set to launch flights without a destination! Confused much? Read on to know more!

As part of a new initiative, the airline will welcome guests on 3-hour-long flights that will basically hover about in the sky and land right back at the same place i.e. the Changi Airport. The new program aims to provide the same services to customers as those provided on regular flights while giving them an added chance to do away with the quarantine blues.

Commenting on the service, a Singapore Airlines spokesperson said, “SIA is considering several initiatives that would allow us to continue engaging both our customers and members of the public,” he further added, “We will make an announcement at the appropriate time if we go ahead with these plans.”

In August this year, Tokyo-based carrier First Airlines initiated two-hour virtual reality ‘flights’ to offer customers a similar experience. Similarly, Taiwanese airline Eva Air also began operating Hello Kitty themed flights with destinations amid the pandemic. ‘Flights to nowhere’ by Singapore Airlines will launch by the end of October 2020. Move over, long drives!
