Yes, people flying across few time zones may be able to adjust without noticeable effects of the time change. Those flying across many time zones will likely develop noticeable symptoms of jet lag.

Why does Jet lag occur?


Jet lag occurs when you travel across several time zones. When you do so, your body goes out of sync with the destination time and it experiences daylight and darkness contrary to the rhythms it has grown accustomed to.

If it is night time at my destination, should I sleep on the plane?


If it night time at your destination I recommend you to try and get some sleep on the way, on the plane, in order to avoid any symptoms of Jet lag. Earplugs, headphones and eye-masks can help you block out noise and light making it easier to fall asleep.

Should I adjust my body to the new time zone in order to avoid experiencing a Jet lag?


If your stay in the destination time zone will last more than a few days, begin adjusting your body to the new time zone before you leave. Easing into the new schedule gradually in familiar surroundings will save your body the shock of adjusting all at once.

Does the direction of travel matters when it comes to Jet lag?


Absolutely, when you're flying north or south in the same time zone you experience the fewest problems because the time of day always remains the same as in the place where the flight originated. On the other hand, when you're flying east, you typically experience the most problems because you "lose" time. When you're flying west you "gain" time and usually have an easier time adjusting.
