AFC Bournemouth face Carlisle in the second of two gruelling back to back away matches.
On Tuesday, the Cherries made the 428 mile round trip to Nottingham for the entertaining 3-3 draw with Notts County.
On Saturday the Cherries play Carlisle, but to avoid the 714 mile round trip, AFC Bournemouth have decided to fly up to the game.
Howe told the Daily Echo...
"It definitely helps in terms of preparation. Going back a few years, we never had the luxury of doing that.
"Hopefully, that will make a big difference in terms of how the players feel come tomorrow.
"Notts County was a long trip there and back on Tuesday night and that was a difficult one. For them to follow that up with Carlisle, I think taking the plane up is definitely the right decision."
Veteran defender Peter Murphy, who has made over 450 appearances for the club since joining them in 2001, is a doubt for the hosts after he picked up a hamstring injury midweek.
Carlisle striker Lee Miller remains out following an operation on his ankle in August.
The 24 year old striker joined Carlisle on loan from Championship side Watford last month and has already scored four goals in seven appearances, including two against Oldham on Tuesday night.
AFC Bournemouth left back Charlie Daniels returns following his one game suspension for collecting five yellow cards this season.
Cherries attacker Lewis Grabban could also return after sitting out the Notts County game with an ankle injury.
Midfielders Richard Hughes and Mark Molesley remain out of contention, along with long term absentees Darryl Flahavan, Stephen Purches and Charlie Sheringham.
The Cherries midfielder enjoyed a one month loan spell with Carlisle in March 2011, scoring on his debut against Brighton before going on to make a further four appearances.
He recently returned to the Cherries side following an injury and has scored two goals in his last two appearances.
