Love was in the air when a couple exchanged wedding vows 32,000ft on board a flight which was appropriately heading to Dallas Love Field airport.

Frequent flyers Dottie Coven and Keith Stewart, from the US, asked Southwest Airlines if they could get married in the air as they spend so much of their lives travelling.

Dottie told ABC News: "We were literally sitting at a (airport) gate in Baltimore waiting for a flight and just thinking what should we do and we were both like 'well what about getting married on a plane'".

The couple, who met two years ago online, tied the knot in front of friends and family who were travelling alongside around 100 unsuspecting passengers on board Flight 4058 from Nashville, Tennessee to Dallas.

A flower girl started the ceremony, giving out peanuts to passengers, before music played over the loudspeaker and the bride-to-be danced down the aisle.

During the vows, the attendant asked: "If anyone can show just cause why they might not be lawfully joined together, let them push their flight attendant call button now or forever hold your peace."

The couple traded in their frequent flier points for 30 tickets for family and friends, according to ABC News.

Following the wedding, the pair travelled to Puerto Rico for their honeymoon.
