It's no secret that people are more susceptible to picking up a dreaded bug after a flight. The close quarters and low cabin humidity are two of the main reasons for this.
Why? Because cabin humidity sits at around ten percent, so your throat and nasal passages are more likely to dry up a little, leaving it harder for you to fight off those pesky germs.
But there are some steps you can take to help keep your immune system strong.
No, alcohol will not suffice here! 😉 Sipping on water throughout your flight will help keep your throat and nasal passages moist.
Use Nasal Mist
Although drinking water throughout your flight will help keep you hydrated, bringing a nasal mist along will make sure the germs stay as far away as possible.
Wash Your Hands
Or use a hand sanitizer, especially before eating.
Sanitize Your Seating Area
Travel wipes can go a long way for staying healthy on a flight. Pull some out and sanitize the surfaces around you including: your seat, arm rests, headrest, tray table, seat beat and overhead air vents.
Turn On The Air Vent
Keep your air vent turned on and blowing away from your face.
