Stay comfy and arrive feeling fresh with these simple ways to stay limbered up onboard.

Sitting still for a long time can become uncomfortable – even on a super-comfy Virgin Atlantic flight. However, there are some simple exercises you can do to stop your muscles becoming stiff during long-haul flights. And they don’t even make you look too silly, honest.

Exercises that can be done from your seat

A quick note on Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

You may have heard of DVT and a possible link with flying. DVT is a condition where blood clots form (usually) in the legs, during long periods of sitting still (so travelling in a car or train, or sitting at a desk carry the same risk as flying). The danger comes if the clot breaks free and travels to the heart or lungs.
