History of The Sky-dining:
The unique concept emerged from David Ghysels, the owner of a marketing and communications company, with his partner Stefan Kerkhofs, who created an aerial-based dinner in Belgium in 2017 for the first time in the world. Shortly afterward, Ghysels and Kerkhofs began receiving phone calls from people worldwide who wished to replicate their aerial dinner concept. First, Ghysels said, “People were getting bored with just going to the same old restaurants.” Then, his thought gave him an idea to enjoy dining differently.
By following their unique vision, entrepreneurs worldwide discover air dining to bring an adventurous dining experience for the people. Currently, Flydining is operating in more than 66 countries like Dubai, the USA, India, Australia, Mexico, etc. It is to mention that all-sky ridings are operating safely. Therefore, everybody should experience this remarkable adventure!
