Flying anywhere is, at the end of the day, a great luxury. You get where you want to go faster, safer, and more efficiently then you ever could driving. The fact is you are safer in the air than in your car. That doesn’t mean there aren’t some things you can do to ensure your flight doesn’t leave you in bad shape due to prolonged periods of sitting or extreme noise. I spoke with JustFly, an online travel agency based out of North America, to see what they recommend you do while in the air to prevent you from running into minor injuries or conditions while in the air.

General Cleanliness

This may surprise you, but airplanes are pretty much cesspools of bacteria. Between the fact you have sometimes hundreds of people crammed into vehicle and the fact that this vehicle is filled with recirculated air, bacteria is everywhere and it is moving with ease. The air conditions aboard an airplane mean sneezes, and their respective content, travel much further. In addition to this issue, planes are often occupied by plenty of children, who often are more dangerous carriers due to their less thorough hygiene standards. All in all, it is very wise that you stock up on sanitizer, wet naps, and other hygiene supplies according to JustFly’s review.

Movement

Sitting down for 12 hours in a Lazy Boy can be brutal so it should come as no surprise that being sardined into an airplane seat for that long is a terrible idea when it comes to both your comfort and health. Much like at work where you may be sandwiched in your chair for hours on end, you need to make time to get on your feet and get a your blood flowing. This doesn’t mean you need to do an exercise circuit, it can be as simple as just talking a five minute walk and doing some non-obstructive stretches. For some, doing this can be critical. Due to the air pressure and lack of proper hydration, people who are prone to blood clots need to set aside time to get some activity in. If they don’t they could be at risk of developing Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). This can lead to blood clots, which if left untreated can be life threatening.

Ear Plugs

While you may have known that planes are loud, they are actually very, very loud according to JustFly. At takeoff the sound can be comparable to a “knobs to 11” metal concert. Luckily for you, head banging isn’t the solution, you just need a good pair of ear plugs. During flight, sustained noise can also be an issue for some. Best bet is to always keep ear plugs on you.
