If these top dating apps and websites aren’t working out for you, why not consider a speed dating trip to the sky? Yep, you heard right. Taiwanese airline Eva Air, the country's second largest airline, has announced three speed dating flights ‘to nowhere’ in partnership with dating company Mobius.
Targeted towards single people missing travel and looking for love, the three flights are scheduled to take off on Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Each three-hour round trip will head in a different direction - over the east coast of Taiwan during the day, and west coast, including Taipei during the nighttime flight that takes off on New Year’s Eve.

During the flight, daters will be encouraged to move around the plane to talk to fellow passengers, while enjoying food and drinks served by the airlines real life cupids, prepared by Michelin-starred chef Motoke Nakamura.
It’s not the first time airlines have come up with kooky ideas to try and make money this year. Qantas launched a sightseeing trip earlier this year, which sold out in minutes as people scrambled to get their much missed ‘flight fix’. The flight lasted seven hours and took a scenic route around the Australian countryside taking in views across the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru.
While Eva Air’s speed dating flight might pique interest from singletons across East Asia, it’s worth noting there’s a rather stingy age restriction, with the airline only accepting men between the ages of 28 and 38, and women between 24 and 35.
