Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah,

I pray this finds you in the best of health and spirits.

(1) You must fast (if able) on the day you initiate your travel, if you didn’t leave your city of residence before Fajr time.
(2) Prayer times are considered according to where you are–in the air, on the place, on the basis of reasoned estimation. This would appply to Maghrib (iftar) time, as well.
