New airline launches free flights with champagne and massages – but there’s a catch

AN AIRLINE is offering passengers a free flight plus champagne, massages, and even an IV drip – but only the most popular people will get onboard.

Willa Air has launched a flight taking just 12 passengers to music festival Coachella, and it's specifically for influencers and online content creators.


As well as a seat onboard the private jet, passengers will have access to a pre-flight champagne bar to help them kick off their trip in luxury.

Then at the end of the festival, passengers will be whisked away to detox at Willa's Venice Beach lounge in Los Angeles, where they'll be given massages, IV drips and fresh juice from a juice bar.

Willa is an online payments company that caters for influencers and social media content creators, and it's extending that to its airline.

Although the airline doesn't specify that applicants need a certain number of followers to be in with a chance of winning a seat, the company said it will prioritise people who use its services.

So if you're Instagram famous or got a load of followers on Tiktok, you've got a much higher chance of bagging a seat onboard.

The flight leaves from Los Angeles on April 15, so if you are one of the lucky winners, you'll need to get yourself there.

You'll also need to be quick though as applications close on April 8 and can be made on the Willa website.

The airline specified that winning a seat on the plane doesn't come with a ticket to the festival.
