Hello, Singapore Airlines. Can I have one first-class ticket to 'nowhere', please?

Singapore Airlines to launch 'flights to nowhere' – Business Traveller

Singapore Airlines reportedly plans to offer sightseeing 'flights to nowhere' that take off and land at the same airport

"Airlines are having to make extremely hard choices to ensure their long-term survival as it will be many years before any normality returns to worldwide travel", he said.

These flights will depart from and land in the Changi Airport which aims at boosting revenues for the airline.

Well if you do, Singapore Airlines might just have the thing for you. They will be bundled with staycations in Singaporean hotels, shopping vouchers, and limousine rides around the city.

The airline has also stopped taking in new recruits, The Straits Times understands.

It wouldn't be the first aircraft carrier to offer flights that take off and arrive at the exact same location.

One of the world's most popular airlines is looking to launch a new three hour long flight route - to nowhere.

"SIA [Singapore Airlines] is considering several initiatives that would allow us to continue engaging both our customers and members of the public", a Singapore Airlines spokesperson told the Strait Times. "We will make an announcement at the appropriate time if we go ahead with these plans".

Singapore Airlines will not return to Wellington even after coronavirus travel restrictions ease, the airline said on Monday.

It warned of a long road to recovery as the group comes to terms with operating with 50% of its capacity at the end of financial year 2020/21 versus pre-Covid levels.

Singapore Airlines, for example, announced on Thursday that it was going to lay off roughly 4,300 workers, according to a press release.

Singapore Airlines chose to go ahead with the trip to nowhere idea after a survey by the Singapore Air Charter showed that 75 per cent of the 308 participants were willing to buy tickets for those flights.
