Could Stand-Up Flights Soon Be A Thing To Make Travel More Accessible?

With the demand for travel on the rise, airlines are constantly trying to make flying more accessible, and one of Colombia's budget airlines is adamant they have the answer.

Airline VivaColombia, has said that they're looking at all options available to make travelling more accessible for their passengers - and it looks like stand-up flying could be one of those options. 

"There are people out there right now researching whether you can fly standing up," the airline's CEO and founder, William Shaw, told the Miami Herald"We're very interested in anything that makes travel less expensive. 

The airline recently announced the addition of 50 Airbus 320s to its company, which are said to be far more fuel efficient along with the ability to seat many more passengers. However, VivaColombia is hoping to pass on even more savings to their customers with the introduction of stand-up flights. 

VivaColombia isn't the first airline to try and push forward this idea. Airbus was the first back in 2003, and Ryanair tried again in 2010, however, it hasn't been signed off on the basis of impracticality.  

Speaking to RCN Radio, Civil Aviation Director Alfredo Bocanegra said, "People have to travel like human beings. Anyone who has ridden on public mass transit knows that it's not the best when you're standing." 

With the demand for travel at an all time high, we wouldn't be surprised if airlines start to make comfort sacrifices to get people up the air!
