A breezy ride from the minute you leave

Simple ways to ensure your vacation goes smoothly when flying.

The circulating air on planes can play havoc with your hydration, giving you headaches, dry mouth and dry skin. Make sure you are properly hydrated.

Keep moving
When seated, rotate your ankles, point your heel and toe alternately and lift your knees.

Boost your immune system
Two weeks before flying, take multi-vitamins, minerals and a probiotics. Take the supplements while away too.

Fight jet lag
Set your watch to the time of your destination as soon as you get on the plane and try to sleep and eat at the appropriate times for where you are going.

Fuel up
Prepare light, nutritious snacks such as a wholegrain sandwich, a bag of nuts or fruit. Eating every few hours will keep your blood sugar levels from dropping.
