Miss Travelling? Or Miss flying? If yes, we have great news for you. Air India is intending to start flights that go nowhere. That's confusing, right? Let's just make it easier. The Air India airline is intending to begin the service where the airplane will take-off and land at the same airport. As per a report in Hindustan Times, officials said that “Yes, we are exploring the possibility of starting a scenic flight service. Other details are to be decided".
However, this is not the first time an airline will be doing this. The report said the thought came up after Qantas Airways (Australian Airlines) declared its seven-hour-long flights, in which flyers will be offered a scenic aerial view on famous traveller objections like the Great Barrier Reef and the Sydney Harbor.
Qantas Airways has been effective in showcasing its "flight to nowhere" service, which is estimated between Rs 42,000 and Rs 2 lakh. The Qantas offering was a hit considering the aircraft's case that the tickets were sold in a short time. On the off chance that that works in India, it will be a major alleviation for Air India just as other private carriers.
Now you might think if it's safe to travel at this time of the hour but with all the safety and security measures the flight will be joyful. However, India has started domestic flight operations in May whereas international flights are still suspended. However, under the Air bubble and Vande Bharat Mission, International flights are available on select routes.
Surely, this is going to be a fun ride, but it's not exactly the thrill of going somewhere.
