Passengers from Doha keen to experience a zero gravity flight have started to book their journey within a few days after registration opened last week.
A modified plane will give its passengers the chance to freely float like astronauts and live out the ultimate experience of the absence of gravitational pull.

‘S3 ZeroG’ of Swiss Space Systems as part of its project ‘Space for All’ will bring a first-of-its-kind experience to Doha in April 2015. The Airbus moving to more than 15 locations around the world will be in Qatar between April 23 and 25.

Organisers expect that the flights will be fully booked before the deadline for registration — a month ahead of the journey.

“People from Doha have started registering already… We can book a flight up to 30 days before the journey. But we expect the flights to be fully booked before that,” a spokesperson for S3 ZeroG told this daily in an email interview.
