Sleep mask

The mask is also a necessary element of a full rest during the flight. We recommend buying a mask of a simple design and the appropriate size.

Material. It is advisable to choose natural materials (silk, cotton). Cotton – hypoallergenic natural material, good air permeability. Silk sleep mask is good for contact with the delicate skin of the face, in the heat will give a sense of coolness. The color should preferably be dark or black.

Bracing. Choose a mask with elastic adjustment, it should be wide.

Case. It is necessary if you travel frequently. The case will protect the mask from dirt and damage.

Socks / Slippers

For long-distance flights, it is difficult to stay in shoes, we advise you to stock up on a pair of Slippers. Take warm socks and put them on immediately after boarding the plane. The feet will swell less than in shoes, and will not freeze.

Pay attention to compression socks. They help to improve blood circulation and reduce the risk of edema during a long flight.

If you still haven’t brought compression socks, travelchannel recommends simple exercises to improve blood circulation during travel: stretch and walk every hour during the flight, don’t sit on your feet. Every 30 minutes, bend and unbend your legs and feet.
