Flight 001 Makes Travelling Easier @Flight001 @PrimerGroup

Travelling, by itself, is fun.

However, it can be really a burden if you have to think so much of how to carry things around. Best solutions that come to mind are either to bring a big luggage or to leave the other things behind. But what if, you need more?

I have been travelling for work and leisure. And, honestly, I do not like carrying and pulling big luggages. I have always wanted to carry most of my things with me.

As much as possible, I pack my stuff good for three to five days in a backpack. Usually, it’s bulky already with all the clothes, toiletries, towel and gadgets.

Not all backpacks are really that comfy, portable and, at the same time, fashionable. All the while, I thought that Flight 001 is just offering fancy-looking travel bags and luggages, that might be appealing to the eyes only, but in reality, are not travel-friendly.

But hey, I was wrong.  Good thing, the people who started Flight 001 Store, are experienced and frequent travellers and know the feeling of being such. After Brad John, one of the founders of Flight 001, demonstrated Spacepak system, I was SOLD. Right there and then, without Brad John even finishing his demo.

All I was thinking that time was “I have gotta have one of these!” Brad was able to pack clothes, 14 pieces for his top and 7 pants, suitable for his 14-day trip.


Watch the video below to believe.

Brad John really knows what he is talking about, and he knows how a traveler really needs and wants. Ergonomic, functional, practical and stylish.

These are the simplest, yet most striking words to describe the Flight 001 Spacepak packing system. Instantly, it is one of the top things on my wish list. 🙂

Fortunately for Filipino jetsetters, Flight 001 is expanding its horizon in Asia, particularly in the Philippines. With their newest addition to their local chains of stores, Flight 001 opened its doors at the East wing of Shangri-La Plaza Mall in Mandaluyong. It is the third and the biggest, so far, of Flight 001 stores in the Philippines.

“Flight 001 is quickly becoming a global brand, which is a vision Brad and I have had for the company from the start. And we are particularly excited and passionate about our latest expansion in the Philippines” said John Sencion, co-founder of Flight 001.

One good thing about Flight 001’s store is its cozy interior – giving you a feel of the insides of a plane. Designed after a 747 Jet fuselage, Flight 001’s Shangri-La Plaza outlet sports of its classy interior.

 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 travellers who had spent far too much time preparing for their trip, envisioned a travel store as streamlined as flight itself. Luckily for travellers 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.

Flight 001 originated in New York and was conceptualized by frequent travellers brad John and John Sencion. Inspired by by Pan Am flight 1, the world’s first round-the-world flight, which made stops in Honolulu, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Calcutta, Delhi, Beirut, Istanbul, Frankfurt, London, and finally New York. Flight 001 has 19 stores globally, of which the 11 stores in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand are operated under Flight 001 Asia, a partner of the Primer Group.

Along with the concept stores, Flight 001 has their own brand of highly functional travel products: the Flight 001 Spacepak packing system maximizes cabin-size luggage space by compressing the air out of two weeks’ worth of clothes. The Flight 001 Go Clean pack bag collection helps keep you organized with versatile mix-and-match bags that range from laundry to shoes, beachwear to gym gear. For more information, please visit or
