Health & Wellbeing

At Aer Lingus, we take your wellbeing very seriously. So we’ve filled this section with top tips on how to make your flight as comfortable, safe and enjoyable as possible!

The best way to stay comfy is to keep moving, try to change sitting position regularly and avoid crossing your legs. If on a long haul flight, take a walk in the cabin once the seat belt sign is off. This will get your circulation going and refresh your legs.

Cabin pressure changes can be painful particularly if you have a cold, sinusitis or existing ear problems. If you experience these problems during the flight, have a chat to our cabin crew who will be happy to give you some tips.

Beat jet lag by setting your watch to your destination time when you arrive on board, or ask one of our cabin crew who will be happy to tell you the local time at your destination.

If you are a regular contact lens wearer, it is a good idea to bring your glasses with you in case your eyes feel dryer than usual.

Keep your skin moisturised and pampered from the dry air.

Choose comfy, loose fitting clothes and shoes for your journey.

Keep yourself hydrated throughout the flight by drinking plenty of water.

If you’re in need of special assistance or you’ve any special requests, you should inform us of this when you’re booking your flight. Alternatively, contact us no later than 48 hours before departure time, and we’ll do everything we can to help.
