An inventive slide lets passengers travel in style to their boarding gate.

Yusuf El Askary was at Singapore Changi airport in terminal 4 on June 8 when he decided to take the more scenic route to his flight.

Scanning his pass, the 28-year-old pharmacist then takes a seat at the top of a slide which took him down to the floor below.

Yusuf said: “I had never seen anything like it at an airport, I couldn’t believe it was true until I actually tried it!

“Everyone was just amazed at how creative Changi Airport is!

“I wouldn’t call it effective, but it was for sure fun.”
