Flight Travel Safety Tips

If you’re determined to have a Florida vacation this year, many of you will probably need to fly. Many people are still pondering the safety of flying for health reasons, but there are some surprising positive aspects to flying when planning your trip. With some careful planning and the right equipment, you can have a much safer trip. Just make sure you’ve booked a FantasyWorld Kissimmee vacation villa to continue your safety. Our Healthy Stay #1 Program ensures increased safety with individual villas that have been carefully cleaned and sanitized and safety measures taken throughout the resort.

While people worry about being on a plane in such tight quarters, the fact that the air is filtered is a reason to consider flying over driving. The CDC and WHO even have weighed in, suggesting that most viruses and other germs don’t spread easily due to the circulation and filtration of air on the planes. Plus, the air is passed through HEPA filters and there’s a total change of cabin air 20-30 times per hour on modern planes. Add in the proper usage of face masks, which should be worn at all times on the plane except when eating and drinking, and there’s a very low risk that you could contract any kind of virus during the flight.

Still, many people prefer to choose airlines that are limiting the number of people on board. It helps to do your homework and see what each airline’s current protocols are. There are sites online that help you compare the various safety protocols currently in place with different airlines, such as empty middle seats, temperature testing, and cleaning frequencies between flights. Just be aware that some things may have changed by the time your trip takes place if you’re booking further in advance. Fortunately, should you change your mind, many airlines have done away with change fees. Still, that’s something to confirm before booking.

Ultimately, flying may be the safest part of your journey. The time spent in the airport poses more concerns, so it is important to keep your mask on at all times and try to maintain as much distance as possible from other travelers. If you’re not driving to or from the airport, a taxi is a better choice than a pooled van of people. Ideally, you also want to check in online and print your boarding pass at home. There are also mobile boarding passes available. Just be sure to wear gloves and/or use wipes after any contact with high-touch surfaces. Also try to limit your luggage to carry-on, rather than checked, further limiting contact.

You should pack a special travel pack that consists solely of things like disinfecting hand wipes, disposable gloves, hand sanitizer (check in advance, as that is the one liquid allowed in volumes up to 12 oz. currently, but that could change), and multiple individually wrapped masks for everyone in your group who is flying. You may find yourself in a situation where you need to change your mask, whether it becomes wet or has been worn for an extended period of time.

Finally, don’t forget to take a test before and after you go and take the necessary precautions. Even when not required, it can ultimately give you peace of mind. With these tips and the security that comes from staying somewhere like FantasyWorld, a leading Kissimmee vacation villa where your safety is paramount, you can get out and enjoy the warm Florida weather and all the great outdoor activities.
