Holiday season is upon us and whether we enjoy it or not, there are places to go and people to see. The United States Department of Transportation reports that trips to a destination 50 miles away or more increase 54 percent over Thanksgiving and 23 percent during Christmas and New Years. The need for travel advice is at an all-time sky-high, and who better to offer some than someone who spends half their life en-route?
Aoki caught up with Yahoo Lifestyle’s Kennedy Johnson to offer his top jet-setter travel tips. “I’m doing over 300+ flights a year easy,” says Aoki.
At an ANA event launching newly redesigned seats on their 777-300ER aircraft, Aoki shared how he has traveling down to a science. He says that it’s all about how you pack — and efficiency is key. Aoki suggests you try to gauge what you want to wear for each day of the trip, and always be open to outfit-repeating.
For someone who travels for long hours, often needing to be energized and ready to perform by the time he touches down, Aoki says it’s best to always try to get your sleep on the plane. Who knows when your next opportunity to catch Zzz’s will be?
