1. IZ*ONE — “Airplane”
Every time you’re boarding, the first thought that comes to mind is the moment you finally set foot in your destination and explore it at length. In IZ*ONE’s words, taking your time and enjoying every little detail of your trip is the right way to do things. So, why not blast this jam and prepare a list of everything you want to see and do the second you land?
The feels in this laidback track are the closest thing you’ll get to cloud nine while literally being in the clouds. This one is perfect to play on a loop with just the right volume in order to relax, especially if you’re on a long flight. Bonus? If you have access to the lyrics, the song is even more fun, since it is packed with flying references.
3. GOT7 — “Fly”
If you’re in a happy relationship with someone who makes you want to fly, then this song right here is the best way to remind you of them while you’re on a plane. And if you’re single, worry not! The lyrics serve as a checklist of what to look for in a potential partner. Either way, this bop deserves a listen!
4. iKON — “Airplane”
Because there is a song for every occasion, this one is for bitter goodbyes. Beautifully performed by iKON, the lyrics describe the overwhelming feeling one gets from bidding their loved ones farewell. So if your flight is taking you away from family or friends, may you find solace in this melody.
5. BOL4 — “Travel”
