Medical Publications for Airline Travel

Health Tips for Airline Travel

Because of a growing interest by the public of health issues associated with commercial flying, the Aerospace Medical Association prepared this brochure for interested air travelers. It is informational only and should not be interpreted by the reader as prescriptive. If the traveler has any questions about fitness to fly, it is recommended that he or she consult a physician.
