Method of prayer on an airplane


What is the method of prayer on an airplane?


If there is a place in airplane where a person can pray while standing and facing Qiblah then a person has to offer his prayer standing facing the Qiblah. If in this scenario the airplane staff do not permit a person to perform the prayer standing then he can pray while sitting on the seat but this prayer will have to be repeated later on.

If there is no place to perform the prayer while standing or there is another issue preventing the performance of the prayer (with all conditions) then he should pray sitting in his seat. In this case the prayer will not have to be repeated. When offering while sitting if it is not possible to face the Qiblah then he should face in the direction that the airplane is travelling in.
