is it a bird is it an airplane Technically, it’s both – as the world’s #1 educational app Duolingotakes to the skies with the launch of its own airline.
Inflight boredom is said to be a thing of the past as Duolingo’s latest project aims to help passengers maximize their in-flight productivity.
The company will reinvent the future of flying by immersing travelers in the language of their destination. During the flight, Duolingo Plus is offered to all passengers free of charge to ensure they are armed with keywords and phrases for the country they are flying to.
Duolingo Air’s inaugural flight (DUOL-1422) will fly from London Stansted to Dublin later this month to celebrate the news that 7 million people have started learning Irish since the course launched on Duolingo in 2014.
Once on board, Duolingo Air cabin crew guides passengers through the language of their destination and encourages them to use their time to learn the basics of the Irish language course before immersing themselves in the rich culture of the Emerald Isle.
Travelers who climb aboard Duolingo’s signature green aircraft can expect to travel in ultimate comfort, as the aircraft are outfitted with plush green seats, owl-shaped headrests that rotate 270 degrees, high-definition headphones that enhance audio understanding improve, and 4K touchscreens are equipped for truly immersive learning.
Colin Watkins, Country Manager for UK & Ireland at Duolingo said: “Many of us head off on vacation without knowing the local language, but we know that travel is a major motivator for learning, so taking language learning to the skies was a natural step for Duolingo . We look forward to entering the aviation sector – there are no wings when you fly with us!”
Tickets for Duolingo Air’s first flight go on sale from tomorrow (April 2, 2022) – or do they?
