Air France wants to help all its anxious passengers feel a little better while flying, and they’re doing so through a partnership with a meditation app called Mind. Since June of last year the French airline has been offering all its passengers guided meditation sessions on the individual screens located on seatbacks.

There are 12 sessions in total, six for children and six for adults. “Travelling on board a plane is the occasion to take out some time for oneself. Time to sit back, read, ponder, or watch a film—and time to meditate! The meditation exercises proposed here, some of which have been specially designed for Air France, are based on a simple, secular method validated by scientific research” said Christophe André, author of Mindfulness day after day, in a press release.

So far the initiative has proved successful. According a test flight that AirFrance ran, 90% of passengers felt relaxed and 85% stated that the experience had improved their comfort.
