The world’s first matchmaking flight – Kiwis desperate or daring?

Inflight dating

Air New Zealand is all set to run the world’s first matchmaking flight for lonely hearts. The airline has revealed that a plane with American passengers aboard will be invited to come to New Zealand in October to “get amongst it” with single kiwis.

“If your dating profile says you enjoy fine wine and long walks on the beach, then New Zealand is your perfect place for romance. Plus our down-to-earth, warm and wonderful people are an added bonus,” the NZPA quoted Steve Bayliss, Air NZ’s general manager for marketing, as saying.

“And let’s not forget the splendid Kiwi accent-what more could an American guy or girl looking for love ask for?” he added.

The specially-themed flight will leave Los Angeles for Auckland on October 13, ahead of the dual Hemisphere singles’ party of the year-the Great Matchmaking Ball at Auckland’s SkyCity Convention Centre-on October 15.

The Matchmaking Flight passengers will get to enjoy a pre-flight gate party at LA’s LAX airport.

They will also provided with themed food, drink, entertainment, and games throughout the flight.
