How to Be More Productive During Your Business Flights

Lifestyles - Tue, 01/20/2015 - 12:16
Five words or less

(NewsUSA) - In today's business world, it's wise to take advantage of any opportunity to be more productive. This is especially true for business travelers who spend many hours each week sitting on flights.

So, rather than sit staring at the back of the seat in front of you each flight, here are some ways to put your time to better use:

* Exercise your brain by reading. It doesn't matter whether it's the latest book by Stephen King or James Patterson, that report you've been meaning to tackle or a professional journal. Where else are you going to get consecutive uninterrupted hours to catch up on some light (or heavy) reading?

* Catch up on important writing. You may not be able to wade through emails, but you can tackle employee reviews, finesse a speech or presentation or even do some personal writing in a journal or blog.

* Take the opportunity to rest or sleep. Why stay awake watching movies when you can rest up before that big day on the job? This is probably one of the most important aspects of business travel. We all know how difficult it can be to sleep on a plane, but the simple act of shutting your eyes can help you to hit the ground running.

* Remember to hydrate. Humidity levels are notoriously low on a flight by about 5 to 10 percent, which is similar to an arid desert. It follows that passengers can expect to get dehydrated to some degree, which can be combatted by drinking at least one liter of water for every four hours in the sky. Not only does better hydration improve health, it's also been found to reduce jet lag.

* Find an airline that can accommodate your business needs. Not all airlines are created equal. For example, Aer Lingus, the premier airline that connects Ireland to the world and the world to Ireland, is expanding its business class offerings in the coming months to provide more comfort to its international travelers.

Some of the changes the airline has made include: More convenient flight times, shorter transfer times, pre-clearance for customs and a bevy of in-fight conveniences such as complimentary Wi-Fi, USB power, ample work space, custom-made duvets for coziness (and warmth) while you sleep on your fully flat bed, and meals that showcase the finest and freshest ingredients from the Emerald Isle.

By revamping its business class, Aer Lingus said it is able to "provide its customers with value without compromising on product" and, in this way, help its business travelers remain productive while in the air.
