Top 10: Tips for Comfortable Flying


Here are our top tips for flying as comfortably as possible…

  1. Pack your medicines (homeopathic and prescribed) in your on-board hold-all so that you’re prepared for any emergency.
  2. Eat and drink alcohol in moderation, but have as much water as you like to prevent dehydration.
  3. Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothes made of natural fibres.
  4. Make sure your shoes can handle expanding ankles and swollen feet.
  5. Get up every two hours while on board: stretch and go to the bathroom to freshen up.
  6. Do the on-board exercises shown in the in-flight magazine.
  7. Always set your watch to the time of your destination so that your body has the duration of the flight to adjust to this new reality.
  8. Walk as much as you can once you’ve arrived at your destination – it will help to get the circulation going.
  9. Scrub your body vigorously in the shower or bath to dislodge unwanted build-up of fluids.
  10. Take a short nap on arrival that revives you without interfering with your night-time sleep.
