In December, SAS hopes to host the world's first same-sex wedding in the air


On a flight from Stockholm to New York, SAS will let love take over and wed one loving couple, hopefully making it one of the world's first gay-themed flights.


SAS hopes to organize the world's first same-sex weddings in the air December 6, 2010, onboard SK903 from Stockholm to New York. The airline will turn one of its lounges into a wedding lounge before departure and onboard they will transform our Business class cabin to an exclusive wedding cabin. During the flight, the couple will be in the air, which will be followed, just as tradition, with a wedding reception, including a full wedding menu, wedding cake and celebrations all the way to New York.


In New York, the couple will be transferred by limousine to the one of Manhattan's most luxurious and LGBT-friendly hotels, the W Hotel. On the same evening, SAS will host a second wedding reception to continue celebrate all the love, which is co-hosted by VisitSweden and the Stockholm Gay/Lesbian Network.


After three nights in New York, SAS fly you off to Los Angeles and West Hollywood. West Hollywood has long been a leader in protecting and advocating for equal rights for the LGBT community. The lucky honeymoon couple will enjoy three nights at the fabulous Andaz West Hollywood as well as some of the best dining, nightlife and pampering West Hollywood has to offer.


The return flight with SAS is of course in Business class, where SAS will pamper you one last time until you reach your home destination.


The wedding prize includes:

  • Return Business class tickets from your destination to New York with SAS
  • Three nights' luxury accommodation in New York: the W Hotel
  • Return flights to Los Angeles
  • Three nights at the Andaz West Hollywood
  • Transportation to/from the airport in both New York and Los Angeles
  • Accommodation in Stockholm prior to the wedding flight


To participate in this competition, all you need to do is create your own couple profile. Besides the basic details, you can upload a video (of maximum two minutes) or three photos (maximum 1MB each image) and write an introduction of yourselves. Share your love by telling everyone why you two deserve to marry in what will be one of this year's most famous weddings. More information...
