Standing In Aircrafts Is A Radical New Flight Option For The Budget Conscious Individual

Sometimes a new business innovation can spur a company towards success. However, there are a few industries from which we do not expect to see such radical new ideas. Michael O’Leary, the chief executive of Ryanair is charging through the progress of getting policies that allow for the standing of passengers on short distance airline flights.

Ryanair is a European company that specializes in flights between European countries with the goal of making airfare as cheap as possible. Michael O’Leary has launched a campaign currently directed at Ireland’s government with getting their officials to allow his passengers to use roller coaster style security systems that have them standing in aircrafts.

The contraptions looks similar to what you might find on a roller coaster. One large brace goes over the passenger and locks in around their chest. A second brace would hook around your waist and lock in. While the standing apparatus does not seem to be as comfortable as sitting down, the positive of a standing in aircraft ticket would greatly decrease the price for the airfare. When polled around Europe, 60 percent of potential air passengers said they would gladly use the new standing in aircrafts ticket option if it meant their flights would be 50 percent cheaper.

Ryanair would be able to decrease the price up to 20 percent, because the standing room required for the safety apparatus device would be cheaper to make and also take up around 50 percent less space on the airplane. O’Leary has already been in contact with the American airplane developer Boeing to make the newly design planes equipped with standing room safety harnesses. Boeing has said that if the governments allow for the new policy, they would happily supply Ryanair with the equipped airplanes.

O’Leary has said that he was inspired by the idea to make short flights similar to a bus trip, from a company in China that is attempting to get similar safety policies past. This mode of air travel seems like it is becoming more popular globally. While this sort of policy may not make sense for long international flights, if they can show that the safety risks are equal as to a sitting passenger, they might have success in getting it passed.

This method of flying is ideal for passengers who desire to travel on a budget. Whether you are a young student from America or just a European student on break; if you want to see as many parts of Europe as possible, saving money while doing it is the ultimate goal. Both, students and backpackers will jump at the opportunity to take advantage of these standing in flights deals. They will be more than happy to sacrifice comfort for low costs. While airlines will still offer the more luxurious amenities for passengers who are willing to pay the costs, at least having a more price conscious option will help the airlines be more successful over time.

Anyone can find vouchers for standing on flights online at a variety of different websites.
