How to sleep on a plane: Top tips for sleeping on a flight as foreign holidays resume

Drink sensibly

It might not be good news, but glugging on booze won’t help bring the land of nod any closer.

Alcohol can prevent you from getting good quality sleep and make you dehydrated, as can caffeine.

Choose to drink water instead to keep dehydration at bay or a calming herbal tea.

It might feel boring, but future you will be grateful when you arrive feeling fresher.


Switch off from technology

Make the most of being away from Earth for a while and turn off your screens.

Studies have shown that blue light from screens keeps the body awake.

Consider opting for a book or listen to music ahead of sleep.

The view is pretty good from up there too, remember.

Pack ahead

Make sure you have everything in your hand luggage you’ll need to help you kip.

Kit yourself out with a decent neck pillow, an eye mask and earplugs.

To be extra fancy, pack a comfortable blanket and noise-cancelling headphones to really settle in.

However do remember that if your hand luggage is too big you won’t have as much legroom to stretch out in – so streamline your cabin bag packing if you can.
