Top Things to Do While Travelling On a Plane

As interesting plane journeys might sound, long flights can be really boring if you don’t keep yourself occupied. To avoid yourself from being tired of sitting for a stretch of 6-8 hours, you can think of many things to do while travelling on a plane. If you actually think about it, long flights can really help you in organising your trip and taking care of yourself. Always remember to stretch your legs once in a while with a short walk to the washroom or elsewhere even if you aren’t in need of it. This can take away your lethargy and make long flights a bit more energetic. So, here are some great ways to keep you entertained and occupied while you are travelling.


Reading is one of the best things to do while travelling on a plane as a good book can make you forget about time entirely! Take your favourite storybook along with you or take one that you have always wanted to read but never found the time to do so. If you forget to take a book, you can pick up a magazine or a local newspaper at the airport. Plane rides give you the best cosy ambience to read, and you don’t have to worry about closing an interesting storybook for few hours. If you are on a tour, you can pick up a tour guidebook and get a glimpse of where you will be heading after the flight.

Carry Your Work

The days when piles of files and loads of books meant your workload is over. Today, it is just your laptop or iPad that carries everything you need to continue your work while you are on a plane. So, if you have any leftover work that you need to complete, a long flight can give you the best time to do it. This way you won’t be distracted by the tedious long journey, and you will be saving time in future as well.

Carry On Your Beauty Routine

Most of the young women know the importance of being conscious of their appearance even while they are on a plane. This will help them to remain smart, poised and elegant. So, your long plane ride can be the best time for you to carry on your daily beauty routine. Stylish women find this as one of the best things to do while travelling on a plane. So, whether you want to polish your nails or moisturise your face, it doesn’t matter. Go ahead and make use of the time without hesitating.


Converse and Have Fun

Speaking to the person who is sitting next to you will not sound very appealing at first. But, once you have figured out that he/she is amiable enough, you can make your move. This is one of the best things to do while travelling on a plane as it will keep you entertained a lot. You can get to know more about that person, share jokes while munching snacks. Who knows whether you will meet your better half seated next to you on a plane!

As a woman what you can do on a plane to keep you occupied is endless. You can even watch your favourite movies, listen to your most preferred songs or even draw and colour while you are on a plane. Trying new things like learning a new language or playing a new game are known to be the ideal things to do while travelling on a plane. Also, you can make your long flight journey a very interesting one through carrying your beauty routines and sharing beauty tips with the person next to you. It will definitely be so much fun!

    I always read on a plane because it helps to keep my mind off the fact that I’m in the sky.
