In brief: Fly when less people

Make sure your child is healthy prior to the flight.
Consider flights that are in the middle of the week or off season when planes are less crowded. Consider giving vitamin c if not already taking multivitamins. Flying does not equate with becoming ill, but for some kids ear pain can be a problem. Chat with your child´s doc for the possibility of getting a script for ear pain drops.
