What happens to your body during a flight

Published May 13, 2023, 4:08 p.m. by Monica Louis

When you fly, your body is exposed to a number of different stresses. These include changes in air pressure and temperature, as well as the effects of gravity.

Your body responds to these changes by adjusting its own internal pressure and temperature. This helps to keep your blood flowing smoothly and prevents your body from becoming dehydrated.

The effects of gravity can also cause some people to feel nauseous or dizzy. This is because the fluids in your body are pulled downwards, away from your head.

To help counteract these effects, it is important to drink plenty of fluids and to move around regularly during your flight.
