along with a 🎨 colorful infographic I received.

We all know what it’s like to be confined in small spaces when flying for hours on end. Being stuck in a cramped airplane with limited fresh air, can be a recipe for illness. 🤒

Sitting in an airplane for hours on end and breathing re-circulated air, can certainly be challenging.

How many times have you come off a flight to find yourself with a 🤧 cold or some other illness shortly after? Well I certainly know I have in years past, but today my wife and I take extra care and precautions when flying, to help prevent getting ill.

Taking a few preventative measures, can reduce the risk of illness significantly!

What To Wear & How To Prepare For Your Flight

Tips for Healthy Plane Travel

When taking those 🛫 long haul flights, you certainly want to be as comfortable as possible.

I like to dress casually, but comfortably. If traveling to a hot tropical climate, I make sure I have a pair of shorts and light shirt in my carry on baggage, ready to put on either before landing, or in the 🧳 baggage claim area.

I always make sure I have a clean pair of socks on, so I can remove my shoes while in flight as well.


Never walk around the airplane, especially into the washroom without shoes on!

Healthy Plane Travel Tips – Get Up And Stretch

Sunwing Airplane

One of the most important things you definitely should do on longer flights and especially those 4 hours or longer, is to 🚶 get up and move around. Be sure to check out my post on …

🚶 Stretching During Air Travel

and why it is so important for your overall health.

For a number of years now, we always carry a small bottle of hand sanitizer and/or wipes with us on all our travels. It’s so important to wash and sanitize your hands often and keep your hands away from your face and eyes, especially in public places and touching things well used by others.

On our long haul flights, my wife and I have made a point of drinking a lot more water during the flight then we have in the past. I do find it makes you feel better, keeps you well hydrated and makes you get up and move to go to the 🚻 washroom more often.

So consume lots of water, its a win win deal!

Tips For Avoiding Jet Lag

I have always found overnight red-eye flights to be the absolute worst for jet lag. It totally disrupts your regular 😴 sleep pattern and there is no easy cure. 

I have found the best way for me to combat this is to; try to catch a nap on the plane and drink plenty of water to keep hydrated and refreshed. I then try to adapt to the ⏰ time zone I am in, as quickly as possible.

What works for me, may not work for you.  If you have any better ideas, please share them with us, we would love to know!

Again, this chart points out the importance of hydrating your body, both during and after your flight.

for your overall health.

I have often read, that if you do choose to have a beverage containing alcohol while flying, it is recommended you replace that drink with two glasses of water.

Just a few extra tips to help keep you feeling better and healthier on those flights, especially ones extending more than four hours. 

Remember to get up out of your seat, stretch and walk about often, and try to drink as much water as you possibly can during your flight.

I know it has made a huge difference for us on our recent 12 hour plus flights abroad, and I am sure it will for you as well. We recently received these great new …
