Is Flying Safe After A Car Accident?

Greetings,
I was in a car accident three days ago and am due to travel by plane for a few hours tomorrow. I'm wondering if it's advisable to do so. No major injuries, but some soft tissue bruising and soreness in neck back, shoulder and ribs.
Thanks.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Is there any injuries to ear or middle cranial fossa ?? Any history of vomiting?? Fever or pain abdomen etc.
Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is.
Simple injuries may won't need to stop journey, please consult your doctor.
He will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query.
