Is it true that I cannot travel by plane after scuba diving?

Yes, it is true you cannot travel by plane after diving. There is a certain amount of time we need to wait before taking a flight or even going to greater altitude. It could be dangerous and could lead to decompression sickness. If you are thinking of diving let the professionals know when you will be taking a flight and when. It could be up to 48 hrs to take a flight depending how how many dives or successives days.
