Air travel is the quickest means of transportation- and today, with airlines targeting the 'common man' by reducing airfares, it certainly is an exciting and attractive travel prospect.

Here's an overview of some aviation- related medical conditions and advice for commercial air travelers. Always consult your physician if you have a health condition and want to fly. Be sure to carry all required medication and other accessories to help you enjoy a pleasant flight.
