SkyZen, a new mobile app designed for air passengers to monitor their health and wellbeing before, during and after a flight, is now available for download.

 Used in conjunction with a Jawbone fitness wristband, the SkyZen app, with data and analytics supplied by OAG, enables air travelers to view their activity and sleep patterns throughout the whole flight experience.

“Recent advances in personal health monitoring give air travelers a great opportunity to track how they respond to the various stages of a trip. With its global perspective on the air transport industry, IATA is uniquely placed to develop a single app which passengers can use across all flights, anywhere in the world. We are confident SkyZen delivers a completely new perspective on travel for passengers, with handy tips offering a fun and interactive way to improve the quality of their flying experience,” said Tom Windmuller, IATA Senior Vice President for Airport, Passenger, Cargo and Security.

SkyZen is free to download and use from the Apple iTunes store, and currently works with the Jawbone health tracker. The Apple Watch and Fitbit version are expected to be released shortly.

 Users of the app only need to enter their flight number, date and class of travel, and SkyZen will automatically collect and aggregate the data. Using the data collected, SkyZen will offer passengers personalized insights on their flight activity, and strategies to minimize jet lag before and after flight.

OAG provides the SkyZen mobile app with flight schedule, status and aviation data. As travelers begin using the app, OAG will partner with IATA to analyze the sleep and health habits for specific flight routes, times of day and length, with the aim to improve the quality of the flying experience.

“We are always looking for ways to improve the passenger experience, and with a tool like SkyZen and OAG’s detailed analysis, we are hopeful to provide insights and recommendations to achieve that goal,” said Mark Clarkson, Business Development Director for ASPAC of OAG.
