New Delhi :  

In order to attract more people and make air tickets cheaper, Colombian airline VivaColombia is planning to remove all seats and make passengers stand its planes.

This move by the airline will not only lower down the fares but will also increase the occupancy in its each flight.

“There are people out there right now researching whether you can fly standing up,” VivaColombia’s founder and chief executive William Shaw quoted as saying by Miami Herald.

“We’re very interested in anything that makes travel less expensive,” Shaw further added.

This is not the first time that an airline has initiated this move. In 2010, Irish airline Ryanair announced low fares for those willing to stand on its flights. The ticket prices went as low as $7.
