If you've been to Europe, you've most likely travelled across the continent by high-speed rail, express buses or even commercial flights. But did you know that there's another mode of transportation which you haven't explored??

Well, absolutely not! Flight prices on Wingly start from as a low as 20 euros (approx. US$25) ?

It's totally an out-of-this-world experience. And if you're lucky enough, the pilot might even let you control the plane yourself!

The platform offers you three types of trips - sightseeing flights which allows you to see a region in a different way, excursion flights for a quick getaway (even just during lunchtime!) and one-way flights. The best part about it is that you can explore an obscure European destination which you never thought of going?

This will allow you to see the availability of flights and the number of seats open. You'll also be required to provide your passport information as the platforms needs to know if you're eligible to fly to certain destinations.

Pilots go through stringent checks and they need to have flown a minimum of 100 hours before bringing passengers onboard. Pilots also need to prove that they have flown in the last 12 months. If your flight is cancelled, you can also request for a refund or reschedule it.

Once the flight is completed, you can leave a review for your pilot. It's that simple! With this plane-sharing platform, flying has never been more exciting. Whether you're a flight enthusiast or just a curious traveller, this is truly an experience you have to try. So, get out of your comfort zone and book that flight of a lifetime!☺️ (P.S.
