(CNN) — Nervous travelers have often found themselves praying on board a plane.
But a new flight offering from Thai Airways plans to feature in-flight spirituality in a very different way.
Thai Airways’ sightseeing “flight to nowhere” will last for three hours on November 30 and fly over some 99 Buddhist sites around the country.
Thai Airways’ ‘flight to nowhere’ will fly over 31 provinces, including historic Ayutthaya.
On board, Dr. Khata Chinbunchon, a celebrity fortune teller and religion history expert, will lead the in-flight chanting of Buddhist mantras.
Wiwat Piyawiroj, a vice president at Thai Airways, said in a statement that the flight is intended to fall under the Thai government’s plan to boost domestic tourism in the country.
Thailand, like many other places around the world, has experienced a significant decrease in tourism revenue amid the global coronavirus pandemic.
