10 Healthy Snacks to Bring on Your International Flight

Sitting still is pretty taxing – when you’re in an airplane, that is.

Although passengers don’t realize it, breathing in an airplane can be akin to being at an altitude of 8,000 feet, which puts pressure on the body to provide enough oxygen for the bloodstream. According to WebMD, the humidity in an airplane, usually below 25 percent, is generally 10 percent lower than that of a common home environment – leaving passengers feeling dry and weak.

For the almost one billion people who travel annually via aircraft, staying healthy, hydrated, and energized is a valid concern. That’s why we’ve rounded up 10 healthy snacks to bring on your international flight that will help your body fight adverse high altitude health effects.
