Budget carrier SpiceJet on Tuesday said it will conduct yoga on board its flights that exceed a travel time of two hours on Tuesday to observe International Yoga Day for the second consecutive year. Yoga instructors from Isha Foundation would pick up a few asanas from the 36 prescribed Up-Yoga practices that fliers can perform in their seats, said airline officials. These practices are healthy for travellers taking long haul flights, said officials. Yoga helps ease the fear of flying and breathing difficulties, added officials.
“Yoga is hailed as India’s gift to the world and having pioneered ‘High on Yoga@35000 feet’ last year, SpiceJet gifted on-board yoga to flyers in India and abroad. When it comes to innovations in aviation and ardent customer engagements, we have many firsts to our credit, but this one is special because it enables us to uphold India’s cultural heritage in a unique manner,” said Kamal Hingorani, senior vice-president and head of inflight services and customer experience with SpiceJet.
