For your travel needs: Flight 001 Manila store launch in Shangri La Plaza East Wing

Traveling will be more fun because the world's premiere travel store, Flight 001 (flight one) just launched their 3rd store here at the new East Wing of Shangri La Plaza mall, it is the biggest store of Flight 001 and they got lots of stocks of items that you need for your travel. I’m not familiar with the store when I heard about this Flight 001 and I thought that they are some kind of travel and luggage bags, but when I witness the grand opening of their new store, I saw Flight 001 is like a travelers haven, because they got the state of the art travel bags and items that can make your life easy whenever you go around the country or around the world.

here’s a short history of Flight 001 store

This one-stop travel store was conceived in 1998 aboard Air France flight 023 somewhere between New York and Paris. John Sencion and Brad John, two business travelers who had spent far too much time preparing for their trip, envisioned a travel store as streamlined as flight itself. Luckily for travelers of every kind, their mid-air detour resulted in a jetsetter’s dream: an all inclusive, retro-modern retail experience that satisfies the frequent traveler’s every need.
For more info about Flight 001

Here’s the local store owners and distributor for Flight 001 and together with the store co-founder Brad John

spotted at the event are fashion and travel bloggers

My first reaction to see their FAs are wow!!!! hahahah, they look like real FA but they are models for the store launch, and standing with them is travel blogger Melody Co of http://guiltlessgetaways.blogspot.com/

The Flight 001 logo is just simple and not too flashy, it displays a simple text and colors that is similar to a plane’s airline number.

The most impressive at Flight 001 is the store’s interior design. Here they imitated a 747 Jet fuselage, when you are inside, you'll feel that you are inside a plane. Flight 001 shows here the look and feel of a 747 Jet back in 1950's and 60s.

You can buy the entire set or you can buy a piece of it.
When we saw the good use of the Spacepak bag, all of us bloggers really want to own one hahah. I wonder which of us will buy one first.

Flight 001’s campaign to travel with old fashion and pack your stuff easy makes me turn to travel more and pack lightly. With the new items from Flight 001, every travelers need are available in their store. The price is quiet okay for travel items, and I love the design because its unique and there’s really a purpose why Flight 001 brought those items here, because we pinoys love to travel around.
