Just this week, Mike and I confirmed our first post Corona Virus flight for September, for our annual trip to Maine. More about our love of Maine, especially the lobster, in another post. When booking the flights, I was so excited to be planning an adventure but it also got me thinking about what will be different about air travel when we head to the airport.
I gathered up some of my must have travel items and also some items that will now be mandatory when we begin to travel again.
Face masks....they are now part of our "new normal" and while many people don't see the need to wear them in public, many airlines have now said you will have to have one to board their flights. Jet Blue, United Airlines, Delta Airlines and American Airlines will begin this new practice next week. It will be interesting to see if any fights break out at the gate due to the new policy.
Back up battery....I have often traveled with this little lifesaver and will certainly have it in my backpack for future trips. While there are plugs available for charging in the airport, having your own device that only you have come in contact with is a plus.
Tissues, hand sanitizing wipes and Clorox wipes......all three have been part of my travel staples for years. And while I will admit that I haven't always wiped down my tray table, that will go into practice for all flights moving forwards.
So when it is time to take to the "friendly" skies prepare for your trip by putting together you must have kit. It helps to be prepared!
Stay safe and continue to wear your masks!
Until next time!
