Flying essentials you’ll never forget – your passport, boarding pass and currency…did you remember to pack your compression hosiery?

Unless you have the excess funds to travel anything above economy when flying, you’ll have experienced the feeling of being cramped. By the time you’ve landed you discover too late that your ankles have swollen to twice the normal size due to lack of movement.

Those who exercise more frequently are less likely to experience these symptoms, while travellers who have a less active lifestyle are more likely to find their ankles or feet swollen at the end of a long-haul flight. Most people who fly regularly will know that movement whilst in the air helps stop the issue. We’re told to flex and extend our ankles, legs and knees as much as possible and avoid crossing our legs.
