I’ve become a bit of a travel-addict in the last couple of years. I have found that there are a couple of must have items in carry on in order to have a comfortable and happy flight.

A couple of comfort items for air travel to help make the trip more pleasant.

This is my packing list for the plane and what I have found to be absolute necessities, especially if you are trying to survive a long-haul flight.

A laptop is an absolute necessity nowadays. I take my Macbook with me everywhere, and long flight are the perfect time to catch up on emails and Netflix. Make sure it’s fully charged and ready for a long flight or layover.


Chapstick

@chapstick

Chapstick should be in your purse 100% of the time, but it’s even more necessary when you travel. Due to the fact the air is so dry in a plane, you’ll need to have your chapstick on hand a reapply constantly.


Water Bottle

Again, because the air on a plane is so dry, you dehydrate faster than you would on the ground. You’ll want to have a water bottle with you and take sips occasionally. A good rule of thumb is one liter per every 4 hours you’re on a plane.


Noise Canceling Headphones

I never knew I needed noise-canceling headphones in my life until a friend of mine let me borrow hers for a flight. Game. Changer.

Also, aircraft noise can actually cause hearing loss. You would probably have to be a very avid traveler or have sensitive ears for this to happen, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.



Chargers and Power Bank

The last thing you want on a long-haul flight, is to find out your plane doesn’t have an outlet and your phone/laptop only has 22% charge left.

A power bank that’s been fully charged the day before is a must have carry on item. They’re small and take up very little room in your hand bag but they pack a punch. Can keep you laptop charged for hours on board.




Toiletries



A little toiletry bag will benefit you (and your neighbor) tremendously. Pack a couple of essentials such as deodorant, wipes, travel toothbrush kit, and dry shampoo are always in my bag. The longer the flight, the more my bag looks like the storage cabinet in my bathroom.



Cardigan

I always get chilly in an airplane, so a light cardigan is in my carry on at all times. Honestly, if I could take a blanket with me I would, but I opt for something more compact and functional during travel.

This cardigan was only $20 bucks on Amazon, is great quality and it comes in so many colors. I bought three.



Magazines and/or Books

You’ll want to keep yourself entertained on board, so I always pack my Kindle and preload it with plenty of books ready to go.

You shouldn’t rely on the onboard entertainment. After half an hour of playing the free tetris they offer, I’m ready to jump through the roof! I have a couple of good magazines and some books that will keep me occupied for hours always on hand
