WE’RE CONNECTED! Wellness Inflight Startup targets 7.2b Passengers!

October 17, 2017 Aviation No Comments Email Email

A first in Aviation history has been established by FLYWELL, as Royalty & Celebrity Yoga Teacher Charlotte Dodson has carefully designed and produced a comprehensive wellness program (in conjunction with Co Founder and Senior Business Manager, Georgina Dodson), which has been created with the goal of educating the everyday traveller about the various means available to stay healthy throughout their journey.

FLYWELL, a digital streaming program for “Air WIFI” is available at www.flywell.tv offering English & Mandarin speaking options. All video & audio content has been approved by Panasonic Aviation and Thales hardware providers for onboard aircraft entertainment.

FLYWELL is a specifically tailored inflight & travel wellness program for business professionals and holiday travellers, designed to make airline customers feel comfortable during a flight and refreshed upon arrival – whether they are in their hotel room, in the air, in transit or at their destination – the program is encouraging travel to be well.

FLYWELL incorporates and interconnects relaxation exercises, breathing techniques, guided meditations, gentle yoga sequences into a menu option package, which encourages individual interests and preferences. The service also provides travel related articles, tips and tools for aftercare, such as overcoming jetlag. There’s an ‘on demand’ comfort button to calm nerves, along with on-screen prompt options for passengers that will enable them to be guided by Charlotte throughout their journey. Charlotte’s guided wellness program – in combination with her engaging (yet calming and relaxing) tone of voice – will provide passengers with feelings of comfort and ease throughout their journey.

FLYWELL’s high-end production was creatively directed by Executive Producer and CEO, Chisholm McTavish of The Content.Company and filmed in Sydney with exquisite location backdrops; the elegant look and gentle feel of the technology’s content will suit travellers of any age, fitness level and background.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) expects 7.2 billion passengers to travel in 2035, a near doubling of the 3.8 billion air travelers in 2016. The prediction is based on a 3.7% annual Compound Average Growth Rate (CAGR) noted in the release of the latest update to the association’s 20Year Air Passenger Forecast.

“People want to fly. Demand for air travel over the next two decades is set to double. Enabling people and nations to trade, explore, and share the benefits of innovation and economic prosperity makes our world a better place,” says Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s Director General and CEO.

The forecast for passenger growth confirms that the biggest driver of demand will be the Asia-Pacific region. It is expected to be the source of more than half the new passengers over the next 20 years. China will displace the US as the world’s largest aviation market (defined by traffic to, from and within the country) around 2024.

India will displace the UK for third place in 2025, while Indonesia enters the top ten at the expense of Italy. Growth will also increasingly be driven within developing markets. Over the past decade the developing world’s share of total passenger traffic has risen from 24% to nearly 40%, and this trend is set to continue.

FLYWELL is available for US$3 for 3 days, under license or promotional collaborations.
