Air France - KLM Virtual Group Presents
Destination Saturdays Vol 19: Queenstown
YMML - 091700ZJUN18
Are you ready to test your non-precision approach skills? Queenstown – which topped a list of the Top 10 Most Stunning Approaches in the world – is the next stop on our global tour. Departing from Melbourne, Australia we head southeast across the Tasman Sea towards New Zealand. Nestled between a magical landscape of mountains, lakes and wild rivers, our approach into Queenstown International Airport will be as thrilling as it is beautiful.
Air France – KLM Virtual cordially invites you to experience Destination Saturdays, our signature event series dedicated to traversing the most iconic destinations, beautiful airports, and challenging approaches across the globe. Some describe it as career mode for the world traveller at heart, while others say we’ve set out to finish what Amelia Earhart started. However, you look at it, Destination Saturdays is sure to deliver fun times flying with friends (old and new). Be part of the journey every other week as we pick up where we last left off!
