Colombian airline considers introduce 'standing seats' on flights
The Colombian airline is considering a novel way of making flying even cheaper — by removing seats and making passengers stand up during their flight.
According to foreign media reports, it’s not the first time an airline has floated the idea, but low-budget carrier VivaColombia says it was very interested in the radical idea, which could help drive down the cost of airfares and make them more accessible to more people.
“There are people out there right now researching whether you can fly standing up,” VivaColombia s founder and CEO William Shaw said.
“We’re very interested in anything that makes travel less expensive.”
VivaColombia is not the first airline to consider stand-up flights. In 2010, Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary expressed interest – and even doubted whether seat belts were necessary.

Declan Ryan Replaces Viva Air Colombia Founder William Shaw as President of Viva Air
Viva Air, the umbrella brand that includes discount airline VivaColombia under a revamped organizational structure, has named a new president: Declan Ryan, current chairman of the Viva Air board of directors, managing partner of Irelandia Aviation, and son of Ryanair co-founder Tony Ryan.
Ryan takes over the president role from William Shaw, founder of VivaColombia, as the carrier continues its major expansion plans following last year’s $5.3 billion USD purchase order of 50 Airbus A320 aircraft that will begin to be delivered in the second half of 2018, according to the company.
Shaw, will continue as a member of the board of directors and “advise the executive team from the board,” said Viva Air in a statement.
Viva Air launched last year as the Peruvian sister airline of VivaColombia, which was founded by Shaw before the Ryanair-affiliated company Irelandia Aviation took control of Colombia’s leading discount carrier. Both Andean airlines, as as well as VivaAerobus of Mexico, fall under the wider Viva Air umbrella.
Declan Ryan has been involved with the founding or management of six discount airlines over the past 30 years, including Ryanair, VivaAerobus, Tiger Airways of Singapore, and Allegiant Air in the United States.

Passenger potential for standing in-flight
Budget airline VivaColombia is considering plans to remove all seats from its planes and make passengers stand. They hope the move will drive down fares by allowing them to squeeze more passengers into each flight, opening up air travel to working class Colombians and budget holidaymakers.
The no-frills carrier announced this week that it is adding 50 new Airbus 320s to its fleet to capitalise on the country's growing tourist market. The new planes will have more seats and lower running costs with the first one going into service at the start of 2018. VivaColombia’s founder and CEO William Shaw told the Miami Herald the airline was looking into vertical travel options. He said: “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.”
He added: “Who cares if you don’t have an inflight entertainment system for a one-hour flight? Who cares that there aren’t marble floors… or that you don’t get free peanuts?” The concept is not new and airlines have been toying with the idea of standing sections on flights for years. In 2003 Airbus came up with an idea of allowing passengers to be braced in a vertical “seat”.
