Tenor Joseph Calleja creates a new 'mile high club' – singing the high octaves

Internationally-acclaimed tenor Joseph Calleja left a plane of awestruck passengers speechless after singing a spontaneous rendition of O Sole Mio, in a new promotional video of Malta’s national airline, Air Malta.

Mr Calleja was spotted on the flight by a young passenger who plucks up the courage to start singing the classic Neapolitan song to the world-renowned opera singer.

The young man was soon joined by a chorus of other passengers, and Air Malta flight attendants, who gather around Mr Calleja’s seat to sing to him.

The Maltese tenor then interjects with an edifying performance that leaves everyone lost for words.

Ending with the tagline “get carried away”, the YouTube video clip forms part of a publicity campaign by Air Malta, the national airline of Mr Calleja’s home country, Malta.

“I am very proud to be supporting my country’s national airline at a challenging time for the industry. Air Malta is a symbol of Maltese hospitality, creativity and hard work,” said Mr Calleja, who was in February named Air Malta’s brand ambassador.

Air Malta’s CEO Peter Davies thanked Mr Calleja for contributing his immense talent to the airline currently undergoing a successful period of business restructuring.
