Siemens would like people, who are partaking in the AirDrop campaign tomorrow to note, they will not be flying with physical bottles of water.
The campaign, which Siemens describes as a social experiment, will see much needed water arriving in Cape Town from Johannesburg. However, airline passengers who will be taking part in the promotion, take note, it is a voucher based system so bottles of water won’t be placed in luggage.
Siemens AirDrop is a one-day social experiment to create awareness and see how quickly five tonnes of water can be transported from Johannesburg to Cape Town using already-scheduled flights.
How the campaign works
In a statement Siemens clarified: “Passengers with enough unused luggage (5kg or more) will receive a voucher, not a five-litre bottle of water. It is on a first come first serve basis, there are 1000 vouchers available.
“Siemens has pre-transported the water to Cape Town, and when passengers arrive they can either collect their water to use whilst in Cape Town, or Siemens will donate the water to Gift of the Givers”.
“This is a social experiment to see what is possible, not a call to action,” added Siemens.
