Speed date at 36,000 feet

If your dream partner simply has to share your love of city-breaking, SkyEurope has just the ticket to your future happiness. So far, the Czech airline has organised innovative ‘SkyDates’ from six European cities including London to Prague and Brussels to Vienna. By taking speed dating out of the bars and into Boeing 737s the Czech airline is helping more and more like-minded singles cross each other’s flight paths.

As soon as the fasten seatbelt sign goes off, the dates begin. After five minutes a signal is given, the men change seats and so it continues. An overnight stay beckons in your destination, with the chance to get to know each other better as you sightsee and sample the nightlife. It’s not until you touch down at home that you have to tick the boxes of passenger you’d like to jet-set with some more. SkyEurope’s aim is to, ‘bring people closer together in an original and relaxing way’.

London-Prague SkyDate cost £99 pp, including flights, taxes, transfers, 4* hotel and city tour. To book future dates see
