Planning ahead of time and packing correctly will help you get through security faster and have a better airport experience. Review the lists below to see what you can bring in your carry-on and checked luggage before you arrive at the airport. Even if an object is normally approved, it can be subject to higher inspection or be denied passage through the checkpoint if it sets off an alarm during the screening process, appears to have been tampered with, or presents other security risks.

10 Carry-On Bag Must-Haves
- Hand sanitizer
On a flight, you never know when you’ll need to clean your hands, whether it’s before you eat or if you accidentally hit a messy tray table from someone else’s mess. Since planes are full of germs and you don’t want to get sick on your trip, it’s a good idea to bring a travel-sized bottle of hand sanitizer with you. Since airplanes are full of germs, it’s a good idea to bring a travel-sized bottle of hand sanitizer with you on your trip.
Airplane food isn’t necessarily gourmet, and it’s also not always free, as it once was. Even if you’ll be eating a meal on the plane, it’s a good idea to bring some protein-rich snacks, such as nuts, to tide you over before your next meal.
- Noise-canceling headphones or earbuds
On flights, I prefer to carry earbuds rather than over-ear noise-cancelling headphones because they take up less room. While some airlines offer or sell headphones, they will not always be available, so bringing your own is recommended.
- Media that has been downloaded
It is indeed best to make sure you’ve downloaded everything onto your phone, tablet, or laptop while you’re on WiFi before boarding the plane, whether you’d like to listen to your favorite playlist, music, or meditate.
- A laptop computer
Planes are ideal temporary offices for some who still have a job or travel blog deadline to reach.
- Pencil and notebook
A notebook is useful for anything from making to-do lists for your destination to holding a travel log (it’s never too late to start!). A notebook and ink, on the other hand, do not need recharging.
- Portable Charger
Although plug outlets are becoming more common on airplanes, it’s still a good idea to carry a portable charger just in case.
- Reading Materials
It’s a good idea to bring some reading material with you while you fly, whether it’s a physical book or an e-reader. After all, you might read the in-flight magazine before boarding, or the movies available might not be your cup of tea (if in-flight entertainment is even an option). Plus, reading a three-dimensional book has been shown to help relieve stress and can even help with insomnia, so it’s a great way to get ready for a nap.
- A mask to protect your eyes
An eye mask has you covered — literally — if you want to get some sleep or simply relax without being interrupted.
- A hoodie that is both stylish and functional.
Planes often seem to be overheated or underheated. If your plane is super cold, a hoodie will keep you comfortable, and if it isn’t, you can use it as a mattress to sit on a germ shield between you and the headrest or a cover.
