Love is in the air – it’s a fact!
Frequent flying may be the answer to meeting your future romantic partner. An HSBC survey* asked over 5000 travelers across 141 countries about their in-flight experiences and the friendship / business connections they had made whilst 30,000-ft in the air, and found that a staggering 1 out of 50 travelers actually met the love of their life on an airplane!
Romance in the skies
Finding love with a fellow frequent-flyer or making more in-flight connections is getting even easier thanks to several apps now available:
Btrfly connects like-minded travelers across 380 airports around the globe. All you have to do is enter your flight information or airport, and hey presto – you have a list of potential partners in the area or on the same flight.
Planely invites travelers to be part of the ‘social flying revolution’ working like a social network in the sky. Connect with fellow Planely Fliers who are either on your flight, or those departing or arriving at the same airports as you. It’s easy to strike up a conversation with those you may share mutual interests with, either on board or on the ground.
Plus, with many airlines now offering in-flight WiFi and instant messaging services between passengers, the opportunities for finding friendship are sky high.
Say so long to flying solo and get on board!
