Jetting around the world may be off the table for the time being, but that doesn’t mean your travel knowledge has to go by the wayside thanks to an upcoming trivia game ready to test your knowledge.

App in the Air is hosting a virtual meet-up on Tuesday at 3 p.m. EST via Zoom in an effort to connect fellow travelers — and yes, there will be prizes.

“One of the reasons people love traveling is connecting. As we've seen that travel itself has declined, we wanted to provide another way for travel lovers everywhere to connect,” Anita Loomba, the app’s director of marketing, told Travel + Leisure. “Connection is such a human thing and travel is one of those channels to do that — the human need for connecting with experiences and people is so vital for our survival, it's one of the reasons we hope to still be able to connect even if we're not able to go to the places we want to.”

As part of the trivia game, there will be more than a dozen questions touching on everything from aviation knowledge like ‘name the airline logo’ to quirky facts. Prizes include a pair of $50 airline credits as well as branded items like T-shirts, mugs, and all-important eye masks.

“If you travel a lot or if you're an aviation geek these might be questions that are interesting and intriguing,” Loomba told us, adding: “While we know travel is on pause right now, we still want to find more ways to connect with not just our users but the travel community.”

Players are also encouraged to donate to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO. (And don’t forget to try out all those great travel-inspired Zoom backgrounds while you’re logged in).

The game, which is free to join, will also include a Q&A with App in the Air’s founder.
