Travel lighter

 Put these tips into action to discover how you can relax more when traveling.

​Bend your arms at the elbows to tense your forearm muscles. Hold this position for 5 seconds. Relax. Let your arms hang loosely at your sides.

Now stretch your arms as straight as possible. Feel the tension in the back of your arms; hold this position for 2 minutes and then relax.

To relax your forehead and scalp, tense those muscles by raising your eyebrows as if surprised. Raise your eyebrows as high as possible. Hold this position for 5 seconds. Keep your eyes still, always looking ahead.

To relax your eyes and the space between your eyebrows, tense your eyebrows, frown as hard as possible with your eyes closed tight. Hold this position for 5 seconds and then relax.

Ask your doctor

About any preventive measures that are required according to your health/medical condition before making your journey.

Use of special anti embolic stockings

Use the right size, change them daily, check skin condition and pressure points.

Healthy diet

Consume fruit and vegetables. Maintain a healthy diet. Also exercise regularly to keep yourself in good shape and reduce the risk of contracting illnesses.

Drink water

During the trip it is important to consume plenty of water to keep hydrated.

Walk around

Where possible and appropriate, stretch your legs by carefully walking around the cabin.

In - flight exercises

Here are some exercises we recommend you perform in your seat:

Make circles with your ankles

Lift your feet from the floor and make circles. Make five clockwise circles with each foot and another 5 circles counterclockwise.

Pump your feet

Keeping your heels on the floor, lift your toes as much as possible in the air. Hold this position for a few seconds and then put your toes back on the floor. Now lift your heels keeping your toes, hold this position for a few seconds. Repeat 5 times.

Rotate your shoulders

Whilst sitting and without moving your arms, move your shoulders in circles back to front 5 times. Then do the same in the opposite direction.

Pull your knees up to your chest

Bend forward slightly and grab your knee with your hands. Slowly pull your knee up to your chest and hold this position for 15 seconds. Relax and then do the same with your other leg. Repeat twice.

Stretch your shoulders

Place your right hand on your back over your left shoulder. Grab your right elbow with your left hand and gently pull your right shoulder to your left. Hold this position for 15 seconds. Change arms and repeat. Repeat twice.

Make circles with your head

Relax your shoulders and stretch your neck toward your left shoulder, hold for a few seconds, then slowly turn your head to touch your chest and then turn your head to touch your right shoulder. Hold this position for a few seconds and then change direction, starting from the right and going to the left. Repeat 3 times.

Controlling alcohol consumption is a wise decision

Avoid excessive alcohol consumption both in airport lounges and on board aircraft. Due to pressure changes during the flight the effects of alcohol on your body may increase, leading to inebriation.

For example: if your flight is departing from a city located at sea level to a destination at a higher altitude, the effects of the alcohol will increase. Even if you are drinking moderately you may quickly get drunk, leading to discomfort or illness during the flight.

Please keep in mind when boarding

  • During the flight alcohol will be supplied solely and exclusively by our cabin crew.
  • Is forbidden to consume any alcohol other than that offered by us.
  • We reserve the right not to serve alcoholic beverages when at the discretion of the serving flight attendant such a measure is deemed necessary or appropriate.
  • The above has been established based on safety considerations.
  • The captain will decide whether a passenger in a state of drunkenness can board the plane.
