Retire Air – Ready for Take-off

Retire Air ready for boarding 

We recently came across an enlightening story amongst all the crazy Covid times that we believe will delight found on Retire Australia’s website.  Here is an excerpt from the story.

Glengowrie Retirement Village residents have their boarding passes ready to take in a taste of Cairo, Auckland and Athens.

No, they haven’t found a loophole in Australia’s border closures, instead Village Manager, Debbie Dean, created an around the world trip through a little bit of imagination and a lot of cardboard and crepe paper.

The Flight for Fun event transformed the village’s community centre into a boarding lounge, complete with a ‘Retire Air’ plane, offering all the perks of travel, including complimentary champagne, hot towel service and duty free.

On booking their trip, residents receive a very detailed travel pack, including a passport, travel itinerary, boarding passes, and immigration forms.

“The residents think I’m a bit crazy – but everyone has a lot of fun,” Debbie said. “These events are important to lift everyone’s spirits.”

On arrival at the community centre, residents produced their special passports and boarding passes to make it onto Retire Air.

Onboard everyone received first class treatment and experienced all the usual flight features.

I am sure there are many fantastic resident activities that have been done through Covid to keep your residents engaged and enjoying our fantastic communities.
