WeMetOnAPlane reconnects special relationships created on flights

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! While many couples are planning for their special night out, there are others who may not have a date. But what happens if you chat up a nice lady or a man in a plane before this and then go about your own separate ways without exchanging contacts only to realise he or she might actually be your potential life partner? How do we go about searching for that person again? Will-Scully Power from Australia came up with an app known as WeMetOnAPlane to solve such a problem.

The app allows you to search, find and connect with that special someone you have met on a plane. All you have to do is log on to WeMetOnAPlane.com and download the app. To search for that someone, key in your flight number, year, month, date, origin or destination. Their advanced search algorithm will display search results of all stories from that specific flight that have been shared by other passengers. Just post a reply if that story looks familiar to you and he or she will be notified immediately.

If you do not know any of the stories, fret not. Just click “Share Your Story” and tell the world how you met that special someone. Love at first sight perhaps? Then get it viral via social media such as Facebook and Twitter in hopes to reach that special someone. The more people who know your story, chances are you might find and connect with that special someone again.

Founder Will Scully was inspired to create this app after meeting his girlfriend on a plane bound from Kuala Lumpur to Sydney and all he had was just her email address. He believes that many out there may not be as lucky as he was. Hence, WeMetOnAPlane was created to help people track that special someone. According to Will, there are thousands of stories shared and hundreds are active monthly. There are also a number of successful connections. Such countries include the US, Australia, Germany, Switzerland, New Zealand, UK, Canada, Netherlands, Norway and India. This app has its own privacy policy so make sure to read up before proceeding to impart your personal details online.

This app is free and is currently available for Apple iPhone, iPad and Android devices. It is hoped that with the spirit of Valentine’s Day, this app will help to reconnect with the one that got away. So start searching away and celebrate this coming Valentine’s with your new love!
