How to make a long-haul flight more comfortable

8 or even 10 hours flights to Seychelles are not easy, that`s why we are sharing a few tips on how to make it more pleasant:

1. Take along headphones or earplugs to block out the plane noise.
2. Eye mask helps to fall asleep even with the light on.
3. Drink plenty of water: dehydration occurs pretty quickly on the plane. Avoid drinking coffee and tea: it cause water retention and have a detrimental effect on sleep.
4. Wear comfortable clothes made of natural breathable fabrics.
5. Use moisturizing cream: it will protect you from dry skin during the flight.
6. Sleep as much as you can! If you are not used to sleeping on the plane, use your time efficiently. Read an interesting book, watch new movies on your phone or tab, play word games if you are not flying alone.
7. If you are travelling with kids – be ready to entertain them. Don`t forget to take books, toys and coloring.
