Two Dutch grandmothers achieved a memorable feat by flying for the first time in a heart-warming journey organized by Vodafone Firsts. The Vodafone Firsts campaign aims to connect people with technology to empower them to do amazing things for the first time.

71-year-old An and 78-year-old Ria, both of whom had never been on a plane before, traveled by private jet from Amsterdam to Barcelona. The women were given a Vodafone unaxone tablet -- specially designed for elderly people -- to stay in touch with their loved ones.

The two women underwent unique training to prepare for their monumental Vodafone Firsts flight. Ria rode a rollercoaster to get used to the sensation of being airborne, while An took a ride on a flight simulator to grow accustomed to the feeling of flight. Despite experiencing bouts of pre-flight anxiety, the two grandmothers' concerns disappeared when they saw the gorgeous view from the jet's windows.
