easyJet Partners With Aerobility for Charity Northern Lights Flight
easyJet has partnered with disabled flying charity Aerobility to host a unique ‘Aurora Flight’ providing the opportunity to experience the Northern Lights at 30,000 feet. The flight will take place on February 18, 2023 and includes a two-course meal at Gatwick Sofitel Hotel.
On Monday (October 10, 2022), easyJet announced that they will once again operate a charity Northern Lights charity flight in partnership with disabled flying charity Aerobility for the first time since before the pandemic. The flight will take place on February 18, 2023, and includes a pre-flight two course meal at Gatwick Sofitel Hotel and inflight commentary from special guests, including BBC’s Sky at Night presenter Pete Lawrence and Aurora experts from the British Antarctic Survey. Limited tickets for the flight are now available for booking for £349 at Aerobility.com/aurora with discounted rates for disabled flyers, caregivers and children.
In Monday’s announcment, Aerobility’s CEO, Mike Miller Smith, said,
“We exist to change lives by providing anyone, with any disability with access to the magic and wonder of flight. We do this because taking the controls of an aircraft drives a focus on capability and encourages our flyers to ask the question ‘If I can fly an aeroplane, what else can I do?’ This makes everything else in life feel that little bit more achievable, whilst offering the ultimate feeling of freedom and escape from restrictions of disability.”
“The Aurora Flight with easyJet means so much to Aerobility and those we look after. Not only does it provide a life-changing experience on the night, but it also funds many more life-changing flights at Aerobility, of course with our aircraft being just slightly smaller. We can’t thank everyone at easyJet and all the other companies that make the Aurora Flight possible enough.”
Also commenting on the charity collaboration, easyJet’s Aurora Flight Pilot, Captain Chris Foster, said,
“We are incredibly proud to be able to offer this special Northern Lights flight once again and it is an honour to support Aerobility and the wonderful work they do. I would encourage anyone to book what is sure to be a fantastic flight that not only offers a unique experience but also contributes to a very worthwhile cause.”
