Must-Have Flight Essentials

Top 10 Must-Have Flight Essentials

I love getting ready to “take off” on a new adventure!! (pun intended)

I enjoy all modes of transportation while traveling…each has its pros and cons of course…but I prefer to fly.

The funny flight attendants, in-flight drinks, meeting new people along the way…it’s all part of the experience for me.

Another thing I love is making lists. I do. I’m forgetful.

If I don’t make a list I forget it…and when I’m traveling this is no different.

Top 10 Must-Have Flight Essentials:

Over the past few years of traveling solo and/or with friends and family, I’ve made extensive lists for flying essentials and have narrowed it down (remember I am a minimalist traveler) to just the essentials.

Booking.com

This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small commission if you make a purchase using these links. It is at no additional cost to you and I cross my heart I only recommend products & deals that will help you get the most out of your travel experience. 

Boarding Pass

Printing out your boarding pass or downloading the airline app for flight confirmation is a must-do.

First Aid Kit

A small first aid kit is a great idea for any type of travel.

Don’t forget to bring along any prescriptions you may be taking at the time of travel.

Water Bottle

I bring an empty Brita 20 Ounce Sports Water Bottle through security and fill it once I’ve found my gate# and waiting area.

Gum

I bring this mostly for take-off and landing to help my ears pop…

but it also comes in handy when feeling nauseous.

Earbuds

With my in-flight playlist ready to go! I pre-download a flight list that will be calming and help with any anxiety I may be having.

Snacks

Pretzels mixed with M&Ms and Cashews are my travel snacks of choice. I mix up a small ziplock bag full to bring with me in case I get hungry.

ChapStick

The Hydration Lock by ChapStick© has been in my travel go-to for lip balm for the past few years.

I have a problem with dry lips all year long and always have this chapstick on me! For the ladies…they have a tinted lip balm as well that I really love to use while traveling.

Travel Pillow & Eye Mask

Inflatable Neck Pillow for easy sleeping…and I like an eye mask to block out the light.

Hand Sanitizer

I highly recommend the Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer for not only the scent but it won’t dry out your hands.

They have plenty of scents to choose from, and also a line of aromatherapy that has really helped me when I’ve gotten stressed out to a point of panic attack status during travel. The Stress Relief Aromatherapy with Eucalyptus Spearmint Essential Oils is absolutely amazing.

Comfy Outfit

The ultimate must-have flight essential is a comfy outfit. 

With easy to remove, comfortable shoes. The Skechers Go Walk slip-on walking shoes are my comfy go-to travel shoe.
