How to Avoid Getting Sick While Flying

I have used these hints many times.

Stay hydrated. - Drinking plenty of water will not only help counter dehydration but can also help fortify your natural immune mechanisms to function better.
Keep your hands clean. - Wash and disinfect hands before eating, after using the bathroom and after blowing your nose. If you’re traveling on a plane, be sure to disinfect your tray table and seat.
Cover your cough. - Make sure you are using proper cough etiquette, and travelers with weak immune systems should wear a mask when sitting in airplanes or walking through the airport.
Move your overhead air vent. - This will steer germs away from your face. Either move the air vent so that air is flowing on your hands when they’re in your lap, or shut off the air vent completely.
Give your immune system a boost. - Consider taking vitamin C and other immunity building supplements a few days prior to flying, providing your body with a boost of vitamins.
Check your destination for concerns to be aware of before you leave. Depending on where you’re going and what you’ll be doing, you may need vaccinations, medicines and destination-specific advice before your Sick While Flying

If you are at increased risk for severe infection, for example those with weak immune systems, pregnant woman and young children, make sure to consult your physician before you travel.

And last but certainly not least, make sure you’ve received the flu vaccine, especially if you’re traveling to states that have already reported several cases of the flu.
