The new double decker Airbus A380 is due to make aviation history with it’s first commercial flight in October of this year. The flight will be between a return flight between Singapore to Sydney.
Due to the demand from aviation enthusiasts to be first to fly on the revolutionary plane Singapore Airplines have come up with a novel way to distribute the tickets fairly – auction them on eBay to be paid with PayPal! All the proceeds from the sale of tickets on the first flight will be donated to charity.
eBay and PayPal will subsidise the fees and ExxonMobil Aviation are donating the fuel for the flight to ensure the charities get the maximum benefit possible. The money will be split equally between, Singapore’s Community Chest, The Children’s Hospital (Randwick and Westmead), and MÃ©decins Sans FrontiÃ¨res.
Singapore Airlines have set up a special website with further information, you can register there to be notified when the auctions go live.
