Platinum Airways Celebrates Spring with Flower Power

Platinum Airways has revealed the theme of its next Destination of the Week series. As the northern hemisphere is (finally) climbing out of its long and severe winter, we thought that there was no better way to celebrate the rebirth of nature than by having a Flower Power month. Flower Power will take us to some of the world’s leading flower shows and events.

Spring has been a distant season in the northern hemisphere so far, and Platinum Airways is giving its pilots a boost by visiting four leading flower shows around the globe. We kick off with the Philadelphia International Flower Show and Philadelphia International Airport, KPHL. From there, we travel to the Netherlands, Keukenhof or Kitchen Garden, the world’s largest flower garden near Lisse, between Amsterdam and The Hague. So it’s only logical that we pay a visit to Schiphol Airport (EHAM). Our third Flower Power destination is the National Cherry Blossom Festival, held in Washington, DC, and we will therefore fly to Ronald Reagan National Airport (KDCA). And we end our series with Harrogate in northern England, which leads us to Leeds Bradford International Airport (EGNM). You might wonder why we’re not visiting one of London’s spectacular flower shows. The reason is simple: DOTW aims at taking our pilots to destinations that you would probably give a miss.

DOTW missions qualify for a 5% bonus if completed within the allotted time span. They come with charts, links to scenery files for FS9, FSX and X-Plane if available, and a selection of YouTube videos.

About Platinum Airways:
Keen to deliver on its mission to keep the fun in the hobby, Platinum Airways is probably the only virtual airline to combine an Open Skies policy, allowing its pilots to fly any mission of their choice with the aircraft of their choice at the time of their choice, with a strategic hub network. The carefully selected hubs, Newark (KEWR), Dallas-Fort Worth (KDFW), Vancouver (CYVR), Perth (YPPH) and Brussels (EBBR), should be attractive to a global membership. In addition, Platinum Airways offers its pilots an often cheeky Destination of the Week, Relief, Military and Cargo missions and a soon to be launched Flight Dispatch division. Sticking to the KISS principle (Keep It Straight and Simple), Platinum Airways hosts an active forum and a screenshot of the week competition, with the winner providing the main picture on its home page for the next week.
