Reason why wearing shoes is advised during flight journeys
New Delhi : Removing shoes during air travel may sound comforting but this is a reason why you have good chance of getting an infection, says a study.
Roaming bare feet in an aircraft is one practice which travellers should not do at any cost.
Frequent flyers must be knowing issues like ears popping, taste changing, and finding it harder to put shoes back on after a flight.
Compression socks can help you avoid the last problem, but the most effective solution is to keep your shoes on during the time of your journey.
The Reader's Digest quoted a veteran flight attendant Linda Ferguson as saying, "We see people walking from their seats into the bathrooms all the time barefoot and we cringe because those floors are full of germs."
"Never walk barefoot into the bathroom or the galley area because sometimes we drop glasses and there could be sharp glass there, too," she added.
