Traveling during the global pandemic has many downsides, and enduring long flights with a face mask on is only one of them. But despite the discomfort, this is usually mandatory and necessary for the safety of all passengers, and these tips will help you make it a little bit more bearable.
The longer you wear a face mask, the easier it is to get used to it, and that’s why many people can endure wearing it for prolonged periods of time in their workplace. If your job doesn’t ask for constant use of a face mask, get ready for this experience by wearing it outdoors or at home.
If reusable cloth masks don’t feel comfortable and breathable enough, leave them for after your flight. Regular surgical masks may be the best choice for this occasion since they’re made with a lightweight material.
Long-haul flights and long bus and train rides are best avoided at this point in time. If you can’t reschedule your trip, strategically plan it to make sure you avoid long layovers so you wouldn’t have to spend a lot of time at a busy airport.
