The COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented set of challenges for engaged couples eager to tie the knot. Now, future newlyweds can avoid the guest list drama and skip the hassle of trying to find a suitable venue that’s under budget and actually has your preferred date available. Harbour Air’s new “Weddings on the Fly” package, launching April 1, provides a hassle-free way to navigate pandemic wedding planning with memorable in-flight ceremonies!
Harbour Air’s team takes care of all the logistics and, as with any private flight, the experience is completely customizable. Choose a more intimate elopement with just you and our crew on our smaller Beaver aircraft or bring your immediate household aboard for a micro-wedding on our Single Otter seaplane.
Instead of walking down the aisle, the bride and groom will share their vows onbaord while seated across the aisle from each other. Seatback pockets have been fitted with special vases to keep the bride’s bouquet secure in the event of mild turbulence. Harbour Air’s friendly mascot, Turbo The Otter, will also be on board to serve as ring bearer and witness. We’ll even connect with your hairstylist to recommend headset-friendly up-dos!
Worried about loved ones feeling left out? The crew will set up goPros on the wing of the plane and inside the cabin so your virtual guests can live stream from take off to landing. Choose the “Fly Over” upgrade and your pilot will design a flight path over the homes of your Maid of Honour, Best Man, Mother of the Bride so you can wave to them from the air!
After the flight and now that we don’t have to worry about cold feet, adventurous couples are encouraged to show their commitment to their partner by truly “taking the plunge” and jumping off the float into the water. The crew will be waiting dockside to snap a photo and greet you with monogrammed towels and a celebratory post-flight bubbly beverage!
For couples that already had to delay their big day last year, it’s finally time to say yes! Already fly Harbour Air for work? Now you can even tie the knot during your 20-minute commute. Plus, you’ll make an eco-friendly statement with your 100% carbon neutral ceremony.
