Air France invites its customers travelling on board a long-haul flight to discover the benefits of meditation via the Mind app programme.
Since June, young and older passengers have been enjoying original* guided meditation sessions available in the new “meditation” section on their individual screens on board Air France aircraft –
- Six for children, taken from Eline Snel’s book “Sitting still like a frog” edited by Les Arènes, including the session “The flying frog” and “Attention starts with the breath”.
- Six for adults taken from Christophe André’s best-seller “Mindfulness day after day” edited by L’Iconoclaste, including the session ‘Mind travel” and “Achieving inner calm and peace”.
Each programme, made up of an audio recording and a corresponding video, offers travellers world exclusive content to familiarize themselves with the concept of mindfulness and to feel in harmony with the special environment of an aircraft cabin. What simpler way to reconnect with oneself than simply sitting and closing one’s eyes.
In an aim to demonstrate how meditation can help people suffering from a fear of flying, Christophe André worked closely with the Air France anti-stress centre that has been supporting passengers for the past 10 years.
Following an initial test flight, where 90% of customers on board felt relaxed and 85% stated that this experience had improved their comfort, with this new service, Air France offers even greater well-being and relaxation to all its passengers – children and families, leisure and business passengers alike.
