According to BBC News, the Vatican has launched a budget airline with the intention of providing low-cost travel for pilgrims.
Called Mistral Air, the airline is a charter operated by the Itlian post office. The first flight leaves Rome for Lourdes, France at 9:30 Greenwich Mean Time Monday. Planning to transport 150,000 pilgrims the first year, Mistral Air will also operate flights to Catholic shrines in Poland, Spain, and the Middle East.
The airline’s planes are painted in the Vatican’s yellow and white color scheme, and the interiors bear sacred inscriptions like “I search for your face, Lord.”
