Why Should You Travel?

Reserve an aisle or exit row seat to allow yourself extra leg room. Wear loose-fitting clothing on the flight, and do not wear tight clothing around your legs and thighs such as girdles or stockings with tight elastic bands. Wear support stockings for additional prevention.

STEP 2

Stand up every half hour as permitted. Stretch your legs and take a short walk up and down the aisles of the plane. Drink lots of water to stay hydrated and avoid alcohol and caffeinated drinks, which are dehydrating.
