Melbourne, Feb 5: Australian airline Jetstar is launching the country’s first in-flight dating service, coupling up with dating site RSVP as they try to ensure love is in the air for singles this Valentine’s Day.
A plane with a group of 28 selected single passengers will fly from Sydney to the Gold Coast on Feb uary 14 in their search for “fun, flirtation and potentially romance,” News.com.au reported.
Jetstar decided to host the event after a recent survey of RSVP members found 80 percent saw Valentine’s Day as a romantic occasion, but just 17 percent said they actually enjoyed it.
“Valentine’s Day can be a tricky day for singles. Generally, there are lots of couples out and about spoiling each other – so for some singles, it highlights the fact that they’re not in a relationship,” RSVP General Manager Glenis Carroll said.
Carroll said that singles should view Valentine’s Day as an opportunity, as it’s a chance to be brave and make a move, reveal a crush or approach someone new.
A group of singles have been selected for the flight via an application process hosted on the RSVP website.
There will be nine different opportunities for love to begin on the day, including speedy dates over champagne and breakfast to in-flight encounters, group activities and a three-course lunch at SkyPoint on the Gold Coast. (ANI)
