A lot of tourists are definitely distraught because of the sudden change of plans this 2020- travel pics became room selfies, people sip homemade dalgona coffee instead of fresh piña coladas, and every relationship bonding is now limited to the corners of their own homes. The lack of freedom to travel for leisure also affected several businesses, especially airlines, and so they are trying to execute strategies in order to save their companies as well as their employees.

A one-way ticket for a 7-hour flight that takes the passengers back to the same place for a scenic view of Australia, was sold out by Qantas airlines, last week. The thirst for leisure travel after almost 8 months of restrictions surely urged the implementation of this new and possible upcoming trend.

Imagine having to experience a flight with a view of Queensland and the Gold Coast, then to the New Wales without having to spend for accommodation, food, and impulsive shopping. Plus, passengers get to enjoy all of these sceneries within the comfort of their own chairs- no walking, no commuting, no hassle. Aside from these, airlines are also adding some gimmicks inside the plane to bring the culture to the passengers, and to still provide the full tourist experience with just the senses of taste and sight. Cuisines are introduced in the plane so passengers get to enjoy their meals while watching the view, funny hosts who tell trivia about the place are also present, and even quiz shows are done to increase engagement. With all these perks and people raving about their #flighttonowhere adventures, it certainly created a demand for flights to be open for more places.

Back in August, All Nippon Airways did their own 1.5-hour scenic flight in Japan, then just on September 19, a Taipei airport deployed a scenic flight for 120 Taiwanese tourists to get to see South Korea’s Jeju Island. Due to the positive feedbacks and clamour from the tourists all over the world for more, the Singapore Airlines is allegedly making plans to operate their own scenic flights next month. More airlines are predicted to adapt this strategy in order to save their companies.

The negative effects of the said flights to the climate due to the excessive usage of fuel is still up for discussion, but with the proper compliance with COVID-19 regulations during the flights, the “flight to nowhere” is a good way to satisfy the tourists’ cravings for travelling. Technically, it doesn’t take you anywhere, but it doesn’t prioritize the passengers’ destination, but their journey.
