Tips for the smart traveller – Flying
Flying can be demanding and tiring
either one trip or multiple trips
especially across time zones
Ensure you drink plenty of water, yes, water
Get up and exercise or stretch frequently
Set your watch to the time zone you are travelling to when you get on board
Sleep and eat according to the destination timezone,
not the air crew’s service schedule.
Not everyone on a plane is honest, keep an eye on valuables.
Carry baby wipes, and wipe your tray table and other items you touch.
The air is often drier, so moisturise the inside of your nose
If travelling with small children, give them a sweet or something to suck on at
takeoff and landing. It helps them pressurise their ears.
That’s why there is always a baby crying at takeoff or landing.
Always check your seat area to make sure you have everything when disembarking.
