Colombian budget airline may remove seats make passengers stand. A Colombian airline is considering an innovative way of making flying reasonable by removing seats and making passengers, with standing seats. To make air travel accessible to more number of people the airlines already voiced their plan in the past. In 2003, Airbus came up with an idea of allowing passengers to be braced in a vertical “seat”, sources.According to the sources, William Shaw, Founder and CEO of VivaColombia, said that , “There are people out there right now researching whether you can fly standing up – we’re very interested in anything that makes travel less expensive.” “Who cares if you don’t have an in-flight entertainment system for a one-hour flight?”Budget airlines are known to accommodate more passengers by cutting the cost of airline. This is not a new concept, back in 2010, Ryanair proposing standing areas and at that time Michael O’Leary described the standing seats as “bar stools with seatbelts”, sourcesBack in 2015, Ryanair’s known for being a no-frills airline, faced flak for not providing toilet rolls to passengers to cut costs. The airline, later, tendered an apology for the inconvenience caused. However, the country’s Civil Aviation Authorities is yet to approve the proposal.
