Platinum Airways Scores a Goooooooool


Platinum Airways, the very virtual Open Skies airline, has announced its next Destination of the Week series. With Goooooooool, Platinum Airways hopes to score at the 2014 FIFA World Cup currently underway in Brazil.

Only people who are locked off from reality won’t know that the 2014 FIFA World Cup is being played in Brazil at the moment. With football (or soccer, as the sport is also known) arguably being the world’s most popular sport, Platinum Airways simply has to be present. The DOTW theme, Goooooooool, marks the Latin American way of celebrating a goal. Goooooooool kicks off at Brasilia (SBBR), the capital city of Brazil and a World Cup host city. The second Goooooooool DOTW takes us to the legendary Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro, where the final will be played on 13 July. In line with Platinum Airways’ tradition to go for the unexpected, the DOTW is not Rio’s major international airport, but Santos Dumont Airport (SBRJ) with its short runway and difficult approach. And as far as the third and final Goooooooool DOTW is concerned: we don’t know yet, because it will take us to the airport of the winning country’s capital city. We do expect our flight crew to remain sober during the flight, and leave the celebrating to the passengers.

As usual, DOTW offers charts to be downloaded and links to scenery files. A selection of YouTube videos usually contains flight deck and ground views with landings and departures.

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, Military and Cargo. 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.
