What happens to your body after boarding an aeroplane

  • More than one third of a passenger's taste-buds are numbed when flying
  • You can shed up to 1.5 litres of water during a three-hour flight
  • An infographic has also revealed that you will 'expand like a beach ball'  

Whether you're spending one or 24 hours at 30,000ft, the effects of flying on your body can be hellish.

Even the toughest of holidaymakers may experience symptoms including loss of senses, bloating and even oxygen deprivation when travelling by aircraft, a new infographic has revealed.

The guide illustrates that cramped conditions, constant pressure and dirty surfaces create the perfect environment for constipation, dehydration and even illnesses including E.Coli, so it's best to pack your travel-sized hand sanitiser in your carry-on bag.

The infographic, which was created by Compare Travel Insurance, highlights exactly what happens to your body on a flight - from being exposed to cosmic radiation to expanding like a beach ball.

More than one third of your taste-buds are numbed when flying at high altitudes and the dryness and air pressure changes can affect your sinuses and taste as well as your ears. Those who suffer from headaches, fatigue and dizziness on a flight can blame their symptoms on oxygen deprivation.

Ranging from fighting germs, 'drinking poison' and blood pooling to your legs to how to keep your metabolism flowing, relieve sinus pressure and reduce leg swelling, the infographic illustrates what happens to your body after boarding a flight and the top tips to make your journey more bearable.
