Headaches are not unusual in relation to travel, they are primarily related to dehydration especially when on long haul flights and are usually relieved with increased water intake and rest.
The stress of travel can also be a cause. The fact that ibuprofen helped relieve the symptoms suggests this was a minor issue. Hopefully this will help you.
