Sometimes the biggest obstacle getting in the way of exploring a far-off destination is the long flight. With seats shrinking and airline prices increasing, you don’t enjoy a long flight…you survive it (at least if you’re in the back of the plane!). We’ve rounded up 10 must haves for a long flight. From earplugs to a change of clothes (comfort is a must during the flight), add these 10 things to your packing list.
1. Eye Mask & Ear Plugs
Drown out the light and sound so you can rest.
Comfort + style join together in a scarf. Plus, it can double as a blanket if you get chilly
Staying hydrated is so important when traveling, especially on a long flight. Bring a reusable water bottle through security, and fill it up in the terminal.
4. Hand Sanitizer and Wipes
Keep your hands and area clean of germs.
For listening to music or watching movies; noise-cancelling ones are ideal.
The food on the flight is packed with sodium; bring a few travel snacks to avoid bloating
7. Change of Clothes
Bring a comfortable outfit to change into during the flight. Be sure to pack warm socks to wear if it gets cold. (Bonus! If you’re baggage is delayed, you’ll have something to wear in your destination.)
Being able to brush your teeth and hair can make all the difference when it’s time to land, and lotion will keep your skin moisturized.
9. Eye drops
Flying dries out your eyes so refresh them with eye drops
10. A good book
A long flight is the perfect time to step away from a screen and read a book (a real book!)
