Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Long haul flights are tiring,boring, and dry. Today we’re sharing our top 10 essentials to take with you on the flights that are longer than a work day. We will be sure to keep your skin hydrated, ensure sleep is gained, and keep you entertained! Whether you’re flying to Germany or Thailand these essentials will surely have you prepared for your long journey ahead. 

To make sure you’re getting enough sleep on your flights we recommend these 3 things to put in your carry-on luggage.

Neck Pillow 

As tempting as it may be to get one of those fancy overpriced memory foam neck pillows, don’t! When it comes to long flights you want to be comfortable and you want a pillow not a rock! Instead, opt for the bean bagged ones! 

Sleep Mask

Pretty self explanatory, turn into a princess for a flight, but also block out the light.

Ear Plugs 

If you’re comfortable with ear plugs we suggest throwing those in your bag to help with the noise.

As a bonus we suggest a fresh pair of socks. These are a definite game changer, especially if you don’t have room for a whole other outfit to make you feel more fresh after your flight. Socks we’re telling ya’! 

To keep you and your skin hydrated on long flights we recommend these 4 things.

Reusable Water Bottle

It is very important to drink plenty of water, especially when travelling for such long distances in high altitudes! 

Lip Balm

This one is pretty obvious, but as per usual we love to remind you! Make sure you grab your heavy duty lip balm, whatever that is for you and apply as needed.

Face & Body Lotion

Once again, self explanatory so grab your fave mini moisturizer and toss it in your bag!

Hydrating Facial Mist

If you aren’t a fan of creams or lotions then mist is the perfect alternative for you! It absorbs quickly into the skin and leaves you looking dewy and fresh.

To keep you from dying of boredom on your next flight here are 3 things to keep you entertained! It goes without saying your phone will be with you so we won’t include it this time! 

Journal & Pens or Pencil Crayons

Write in a notebook or journal, doodle, make it pretty and colour code your thoughts. The possibilities are endless.

Colouring Book or Puzzle book

Challenge yourself and get an adult colouring book with very intricate designs! Maybe get a sudoku book and really think! 


If you like brainless activities (like most people) download a few games and movies onto your laptop thru Netflix or just get pirated movies, it’s your life!

A few more things you could use:

  1. Chewing gum
  2. Baby wipes
  3. Hair tools e.g. ponytails, brush etc.
  4. Snacks!!
  5. Deodorant 
  6. Headphones
  7. Sleep aid e.g. melatonin, essential oils etc.
