A Business Traveler's Guide to Making Long Flights Easier on the Mind and Body

Last updated 5 years ago

As the world economy becomes more internationally connected, business professionals are more frequently traveling the world. At the same time, the latest aircrafts have become so advanced that international flights can be carried out with minimal stops. For this reason, frequent business travelers must find new ways to stay calm and stress-free during extended flights:

Carefully Consider Your Airline Carrier Many airlines may boast impeccable service or delicious meals, but it’s incredibly important that you look into the comfort of your in-flight seat. If you’re looking to get some sleep on your next 12-hour flight, you need to make sure that your seat can recline to a comfortable position or that the plane offers flat-bed service and entertainment amenities in the business class area.  

Request a Courtesy Seat While flying in business class does provide you with much more space than economy, you can make your flight more enjoyable by having the space directly next to you empty. Though your ability to sit next to an empty chair will depend on whether or not the flight is full, you can increase your chances of securing this accommodation by establishing a good relationship with a particular airline provider. 

Make an Arrival Plan One of the biggest challenges of constantly making international trips is suffering jetlag. To help your body adjust, it’s important that you research ahead of time what time of day you will be arriving at your destination. With this information, you can adjust your sleep and eating schedule to prepare yourself for the change in routine that will occur once you touch down in a new time zone.
