IATA has released a mobile app for passengers to monitor their health and wellbeing before, during and after a flight.

Used in conjunction with a Jawbone fitness wristband, the SkyZen app enables air travelers to view their activity and sleep patterns throughout the whole flight experience. Helpful hints will enable users to improve their travel experience and to combat jet lag when crossing time zones.

“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,” said Tom Windmuller, IATA Senior Vice President for Airport, Passenger, Cargo and Security. “We are confident SkyZen delivers a new perspective on travel for passengers, with handy tips offering a fun and interactive way to improve the quality of their flying experience.”

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