Air Travel Tips

Whether it’s your first or fifteenth time flying out of Phoenix, it’s always useful to find tips to help save time and money. At Liv Ahwatukee we’re all about sharing helpful advice. The more you travel you’ll figure out what works for you and what you just don’t need to bring along with you. For those less-seasoned travelers, we’ve found a list of must haves when packing your carry-on bag. These tips come from Brownell.


  1. Eye Mask & Ear Plugs
    Drown out the light and sound so you can rest.

    2. Scarf
    Comfort + style join together in a scarf. Plus, it can double as a blanket if you get chilly.

    3. Water
    Staying hydrated is so important when traveling, especially on a long flight. Bring a reusable water bottle through security, and fill it up in the terminal.

    4. Hand Sanitizer and Wipes
    Keep your hands and area clean of germs.

    5. Earphones
    For listening to music or watching movies; noise-cancelling ones are ideal.

    The food on the flight is packed with sodium; bring a few travel snacks to avoid bloating.

    7. Change of Clothes
    Bring a comfortable outfit to change into during the flight. Be sure to pack warm socks to wear if it gets cold. (Bonus! If you’re baggage is delayed, you’ll have something to wear at your destination.)

    8. Toiletries
    Being able to brush your teeth and hair can make all the difference when it’s time to land, and lotion will keep your skin moisturized.

    9. Eye drops
    Flying dries out your eyes so refresh them with eye drops

    10. A good book
    A long flight is the perfect time to step away from a screen and read a book (a real book!).
