After laparoscopic appendectomy, there is no harm in doing normal activities even on post op day 1. But as you are travelling on a plane, you should avoid long distance travels, as if some thing even trivial happens, it will make u very much worrisome. It is advisable to consult your surgeon before leaving, so that he could examine u thoroughly.
