Preparing for long-haul trips - Comfortable

Get ready! Your journey starts here.

Our passengers’ wellbeing is important to us, which is why we want to give you some advice about long-haul flights.

Follow our advice and enjoy your flight to the fullest.

Give some thought to your seat

  • If you’re travelling Economy, choose a window seat, where you’ll get more rest;
  • If you’re going to need to use the WC frequently, choose an aisle seat to make it easier to get there;
  • The rear seats are in busy areas where you will feel turbulence more;
  • There is more legroom by the emergency exits;
  • Find out about seats on our planes.

Wear comfortable clothes

  • We recommend loose trousers, soft footwear and a pair of sandals and socks, even if you’re travelling to a warm destination, as it is always cooler on the plane;
  • Choose fabrics such as cotton, wool or silk, which won’t restrict your movement.

Essential tips on sleeping well

  • Bring a sleep mask and earplugs for greater comfort. Bring an inflatable cushion that adapts to your neck;
  • If you’re travelling in Business Class, you don’t need to worry. We have a kit just for you.

Basic toiletry kit

  • Bring a toothbrush, mini toothpaste and wet wipes for your comfort and hygiene;
  • Don’t forget the rules on liquids (transparent bags and containers of no more than 100ml).

Avoid drinking coffee or alcohol

  • Alcohol increases dehydration (avoid on the day before the flight too);
  • Coffee is a stimulant that also contributes to dehydration and irritability

Charge your electronic devices

  • Install entertainment on your devices for the flight. Rest your eyes by reading a book;
  • Alternatively, you can leave your entertainment to TAP, which has video and audio on demand, offering series, films, etc.;
  • Look at this month’s highlights here.

Adjust your watch

  • Adjust your watch to local time at your destination. This will give you an idea about adjusting; your sleep patterns so that you can avoid jet lag when you arrive.
