Dehydration Onboard a Plane

What is Dehydration?

Dehydration is a condition where the body loses an excessive amount of water. This is recognised as a major problem facing air travellers, especially those on long-haul flights. Dehydration can contribute to jet lag, headaches, dry skin and nasal irritation.

What Causes Dehydration?

Cabin air systems in modern jet aircrafts control pressurisation, airflow, air filtration and temperature. The continued recycling of cabin air together with the low air pressure, decreases cabin humidity. As a result, your body loses water more rapidly causing dehydration, sometimes without you even noticing.

Treating Dehydration

Not only is it important that you consume enough fluids to replace those lost during the flight, it is also vital that these fluids contain enough electrolytes so that rehydration can occur as rapidly as possible.

Electrolytes help to absorb water by enhancing the intestinal absorption mechanisms. Electrolytes also act to maintain the correct blood volume and balance to ensure the body can hydrate effectively.
