8 Top Flying Tips

Summer’s here, school’s out and many people are preparing to travel overseas. Whether you’re traveling to enjoy some well-earned rest and relaxation, to embark on exciting adventures or to spend quality time with family and friends, you’ll have a better trip if you travel healthily. Dr Kay Deeming from our Family Medicine team shares her Top 8 Tips for Healthy Flying…

  1. Wear comfortable clothing and remember temperatures can vary between airport terminals, planes and your destination, so it’s always good to have a layer or two handy.
  2. Avoid coffee and alcohol on board.
  3. Stay well hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
  4. Do a few simple foot exercises during the flight to reduce swelling and improve venous flow such as those suggested by Emirates.
  5. Ensure you have enough medication with you for the duration of the holiday.
  6. Carry medicines in your hand luggage (but don’t to exceed the limits of liquids allowed on board).
  7. Carry a copy of the prescriptions for any fully controlled medication.
  8. Check out government websites for countries you are visiting or transiting through regarding permitted prescribed medications.

Wishing you happy and healthy travels from all at the Dubai Physiotherapy & Family Medicine Clinic!
