Kolkata: Singapore Airlines (SIA) will be organizing a special charity flight for some 300 beneficiaries of Community Chest on the world’s largest aircraft, the Airbus A380, as part of the Airline’s SG50 activities.
A first for SIA, the three hour charity flight will be operated on 29 May 2015. Beneficiaries will include children with special needs, adults with disabilities, as well as disadvantaged elderly and families, many of whom have never had the opportunity to take a flight.
In addition to enjoying an inflight meal service and the award-winning KrisWorld inflight entertainment system, beneficiaries will be treated to special performances by SIA’s world-famous cabin crew during the special flight.
Volunteers from SIA, comprising ground staff, cabin crew and pilots, will be on hand to assist the beneficiaries, so as to make their experience a delightful, memorable and comfortable one.
SIA’s partners helping to make the flight possible include Airbus, Changi Airport Group, SATS and Shell Aviation.
Singapore Airlines CEO, Mr Goh Choon Phong, said: “We and our supporting partners are thrilled to be able to share with the beneficiaries the excitement of flying. We hope to provide them a unique and memorable experience that they will cherish forever. At the same time we are doing our part to give back to the community during Singapore’s 50th birthday year while raising awareness for the many worthwhile programs that Community Chest supports.”
