Question: [So] Shaykh, this questioner is asking, if I travelled for ‘umrah by airplane during Ramadhaan, should I not fast since I will be travelling by airplane; should I not fast or [should I] fast?

Response: [Both] this is permissible for you [to do], and that is permissible for you [to do]; it is permissible for you not to fast, bearing in mind that you are travelling, and not to fast is better for the traveller, while it is permissible for you to fast [if you choose to do so].
