We all know that most people are scared to travel during this time, but for those that do have to, what can they do to ensure a safer and more enjoyable air travel? We present to you 4 health and wellness tips designed to help your readers travel safe and well!

  1. Healthier meals onboard

The dry environment within an aircraft cabin often makes dehydration a problem, leading to fatigue, headaches and nausea. Onboard its longest Perth-London flights, Australian national carrier Qantas has developed a series new dishes featuring delicious ingredients that have added benefits of hydration, such as green leafy vegetables, cucumber, strawberries and celery. To learn all about the new menu.

  1. Health booster beverages & fine wine selection for relaxation

When consumed in moderation, alcohol can offer travellers some much-needed relaxation and promote healthy sleep. With an award-winning wine selection that includes the likes ofGiant Steps Tarraford Vineyard Syrah (2018), Shaw and Smith Lenswood Vineyard Chardonnay (2017), and Morris of Rutherglen Old Premium Rare Liqueur Muscat, the Qantas Rockpool Sommeliers are proud to present an exceptional selection of wine from boutique producers to iconic brands from across Australia, New Zealand and Champagne.

For customers that don’t fancy the booze, there’s a bespoke herbal tea, which encourages relaxation developed especially for Qantas by Dilmah, made from lemon verbena chamomile and lemongrass. Meanwhile, a hot chocolate bedtime drink with the combination of warm milk and chocolate containing the sleep inducing amino acid Tryptophan help prompt the body’s sleep cycle, while an organic kombucha by Remedy is full of natural probiotics that assist with digestion.

  1. Amenities to promote healthy sleep inflight

From soft-cotton sleepwear designed by renowned Aussie fashion designer Martin Grant to indulgent male and female amenity kits filled with bespoke ASPAR products by Aurora Spa, the Qantas sleep experience in First Class is built around the airline’s anticipation of everything its passengers may require throughout their journey. The bedding down service with Sheridan bedding, a pillow menu, and 100% cotton woven throw, duvet and memory foam mattress are your ticket to a truly peaceful sleep.

  1. Active movement & inflight exercise

Maintaining movement and stretching can work wonders in keeping the body active during a flight, and this was something that travellers took part in last year onboard Qantas’ ultra-long-haul research flights.
