OMG! Kerala’s only passenger on flight from Frankfurt to Singapore, interesting reasonJuly 9, 2020
Frankfurt to Singapore: No ordinary person can imagine that he would travel alone in an international flight, but this happened to a person from Kerala recently. This person traveled from Frankfurt to Singapore as a solo passenger, although 10 crew members were present on the flight during this time. Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, passengers have been going through such strange experiences during the flight for some time.
Pratap Pillai from Kerala works in the marine industry and arrived in Hamburg, Germany from Singapore just before the lockdown. After this, he was stuck there for three months due to the lockdown.
Pillai had the opportunity to return to India in early June under the Vande Bharat Mission, but the flight was to Delhi, so he did not return. He decided to return to Kerala via Singapore instead. As a result, he caught a flight from Frankfurt to Singapore and had the strange experience of traveling alone.
Pillai said that he came to know after boarding the flight that he was the only passenger on the flight. Other passengers had their tickets canceled. It became an unforgettable experience for him as he did not return to India from a direct flight due to the fear of not being able to follow social distancing, but in this flight he did not have to worry because he was the only passenger.
