October 16 is being billed as Super Saturday in New Zealand, where the government is urging any eligible unvaccinated New Zealander to get their shot.

But a few lucky people will be able to get their vaccine on board an Air New Zealand Boeing 787 aircraft at Auckland Airport, CNN reported.

The people who are able to sign up for the “Jabaseat” opportunity won’t just get their first round of the Pfizer vaccine. They will also get a tour of Air New Zealand’s hangar, complimentary snacks and drinks served by Air New Zealand crew members and a commemorative boarding pass.

New Australian low-cost airline Bonza will launch in 2022.

The once-of-a-kind offering is open to anyone in the Auckland area who is eligible for a vaccine, hasn’t gotten one already and is able to sign up through the national Air New Zealand portal. Once they have registered for their jab, they will see “Air New Zealand Jabaseat” listed as a potential clinic.

There’s zero charge for the vaccine or the experience, although customers able to book the “Jabaseat” will be responsible for getting to and from the airport themselves.
