On Board Travel Advice
Most airlines have accumulated a great deal of knowledge and
experience about the effects of air travel on the body. Airlines
now offer a number of measures to maximise your comfort and awareness,
especially during longhaul flights.
Consider the following recommendations on your next flight:
Try not to sit still for too long. When it is convenient, get
up and move about the cabin and stretch your arms and legs every
Go for a light meal and drink plenty of water. Go easy on alcohol,
coffee and tea.
Sleep it off. Help your body cope better when travelling to new
time zones by taking the opportunity to sleep en route. Every
little nap will help. And also don't forget to remove your contact
lenses before you sleep.
