If you are traveling large distances by plane on Korean Air flights, it helps to know some health tips to make your flight more comfortable. In-cabin temperature for Koran Air flights stays between 22 and 24, which is a very comfortable temperature. It is still best to wear comfortable clothes that are not too thick, but always have a light sweater or jacket in your carry-on luggage, just in case you are cold.

Humidity inside the cabin of Korean flights is maintained at 15 percent. The comfortable humidity level for the average person is between 50 and 60 percent. The level of 15 percent of Korean Air flights is already considered dry. In dry humidity the moisture in the body tends to evaporate. The skin, as well as the membranes of the eyes and nose also begin to dry out during the flight and can be quite uncomfortable when this happens. The best thing to do during Korean flights is to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water, fruit juices or any kind of liquid drinks. Avoid drinking coffee and tea as these drinks can only cause additional dehydration. Passengers with contact lenses should remove them during Korean flights to prevent eye dryness which could cause eye inflammation.

Atmospheric pressure within Korean flights is set at an altitude of 5,000-8,000 feet. There is a tendency for ear deafness to occur. This is due to the change in pressure within Korean Air flights when landing or taking off. To prevent deafening ears chew gum or simply move the jaw up and down as if chewing. You can also try to close your mouth and then pinch your nose as you breathe some air slowly.
