Carry-On Essentials: Short Haul Edition

A short haul flight is a flight with a flight time under three hours. There are 3 things I will always bring with me on these short flights.

  1. Snacks – Not all airlines provide complimentary snacks. If you are anything like me and are hungry all the time, I would pack a few snacks. I’m a big fan of snack size pringles and almonds or walnuts.
  2. Water Bottle – It is important to stay hydrated. We may not be able to bring a filled water bottle through security but if you bring an empty bottle it is very easy to fill it at a water fountain or on the plane.
  3. Entertainment – Not all of the planes designed for short haul flights are equipped with entertainment systems or electronic plug ins. If you do not plan to take a nap on your flight I would bring a book or magazine to pass the time. If you bring electronic entertainment I would also pack a portable charger as well.

These are my always pack on a short haul items. I will never leave home without them.
