After moths of campaigning and 81,640 votes, German gay couple, Aleksandar Mijatovic and Shantu Bhattacherjee, will become the world’s first same-sex couple to get married in the air. It was arguably one of the most successful social media campaigns done by any airline—the “Love is in the Air” competition acquired 536,000 links on Google and press attention from around the world.
The couple will be married over Swedish airspace onboard Scandinavian Airlines’ flight SK903 on December 6 between Stockholm and New York and enjoy a beautiful honeymoon with all the fixings in both NY and LA.
These boys won over the hearts of many, mostly because of their unconditional love for one another.
“After seven years I still have butterflies in my stomach when I look at him. And I love the fact that I alway feel that I am in a team and that I can rely on him and trust him unconditionally.” Shantu says that “I love the fact that Alex completes me throughout and gives me the feeling that I don’t need anything else at all.”
Congrats guys! We wish you many years of sky-high, marital bliss.
