If you are traveling long distances by air on Korean Air flights, it helps to know some health tips to make your flight more comfortable. The temperature inside the cabin of Koran Air flights is maintained at 22 to 24, which is a very comfortable temperature. It is even better to wear comfortable clothes that are not too thick, but always have a light sweater or jacket in your luggage only if you get cold.

Moisture inside the cabin is maintained at 15%. The comfortable level of humidity for the average person is at 50 to 60 percent. The 15% level on Korean Air flights is already considered dry. In dry humidity the body moisture tends to evaporate. The skin as well as the membranes in the eyes and nose also begin to dry out in the course of the flight and can get quite uncomfortable when this happens. The best thing to do during your Korean flights is to keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water, fruit juices or any type of liquid drink. Avoid drinking coffee and tea because these drinks can only cause further dehydration. Passengers with contact lenses should remove them during Korean flights to avoid dry eyes that could cause eye inflammation.

Atmospheric pressure inside Korean flights is at an altitude of 5,000-8,000 feet. There is a tendency for ear deafness to manifest. This is due to the change in pressure inside Korean Air flights as they land or take off. To avoid deafness in your ears, chew gums or simply move your jaw up and down as if chewing gum. You can also try to close your mouth and then pinch your nose while blowing a little air slowly.
