In-flight entertainment takes a whole new meaning with El Al's recently-launch in-flight safety video.

Forget the standard reminders to fasten your seat belt and put your tray-table up, as an attractive group of sirens in the sky perform a colorful musical number to encourage pre-flight safety for El Al's new low-cost operator UP.

Following suit from Virgin Airlines' popular gimmick clip, the video invites travelers to "buckle UP and get ready to boogie."

UP flights set to the skies in late March with budget fares to five European destinations: Berlin, Budapest, Kiev, Prague and Larnaca.
