Travel plans shelved? No problem. One of the world’s best airlines looks set to be launching flights to nowhere, allowing locals to enjoy their sky-high pursuits even during the ongoing pandemic. Singapore Airlines has revealed that these domestic flights could start as early as the end of October this year, complete with staycation deals.
The national flag carrier is also exploring a collaboration with the local tourism board to offer credits for locals to use, so as to partially cover the costs of these leisure flights. Expected to span three hours, these flights will depart and land in Changi Airport. To complete the experience for travelers, the flights to nowhere could be bundled up with hotel partnerships for staycations, shopping vouchers for use at lifestyle destination Jewel Changi Aiport, as well as limousine service to ferry travelers to and from their homes.
Meanwhile, other airlines in Asia, such as Japanese carrier All Nippon Carrier and Taiwanese airlines like China Airlines and Eva Air, have offered sightseeing flights in the midst of overseas travels being curbed.
