Performing Salaah on the plane

Q: With regard to travelling on the plane and the time of Salaah setting in particularly Maghrib. Often there is a clash between time of Salaah and the passengers busy seating themselves making it difficult to go to a space and perform Salaah. Otherwise the direction of qibla may be difficult to face.

Lastly is it permissible in such circumstances for a person who is completely fit to sit and perform Salaah in his/her seat?

A: Once the plane has settled you may get up and perform your namaaz.


And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
