A retired aircraft engineer is offering impoverished Indians the chance to fulfil their dreams of air travel for only Rs 60. The twist is that aircraft never leaves the ground — earning it the nickname ‘the flight to nowhere’. Bahadur Chand Gupta, 58, from Haryana, purchased a decommissioned Airbus 300 in 2003 for Rs 6 lakh. Parked on the outskirts of New Delhi, on the periphery of the capital’s International airport, the plane is mostly visited by children and the region’s underprivileged citizens.
Visitors receive the whole flight experience — from boarding passes and safety instructions to in-flight catering.
