It’s probably been a while since you’ve seen the inside of an airport. But if you do find yourself on a plane in the near future, it’s important to be prepared. So let’s talk about the basics. Like packing hand sanitizers, gloves, tissues, disinfectant wipes, and a mask. These items are a must.
But there are also products that’ll help you, well, touch fewer things. And make the whole experience easier. So while you’re focused on getting from point A to B, we’re here to set you up for travel success.
For more info, check out tips from the CDC before you book a flight.
Wear a mask. Always. But especially when you’re flying (we also recommend double masking). This one is made of cotton and features a filter for better ventilation. For every mask purchased, one gets donated to a medical facility in need of PPE. Do good, stay safe. ($22, Ngozika O’keke)
Prep a necessities pouch. Say hi to your in-air travel buddy. This pouch is clear, making airport security and quick grabs a breeze. No rummaging necessary. Especially while the seatbelt sign is on. ($39+, Mark & Graham)
Pack a pillow. This one will provide support, but can be rolled into a ball once your flight is over. It’s also lightweight, so adding it to your carry-on will be no big deal. To clean, just remove the cover and wash. Sweet dreams. ($60, Uncommon Goods)
