Traveling with hand luggage on an Iran Air flight: Here is a list of some essential items to pack in your suitcase

– Favourite book

In everyday life, everything moves so fast that sometimes we don’t have time to enjoy life’s little pleasures, like a good book. Take advantage of those little hours of peace inside the plane or during a long layover at the airport and finish this book once and for all.

– Hygiene and care products

You don’t have to pack your entire bathroom in your suitcase, but a few items can make all the difference. Toothbrush and toothpaste, deodorant; ideally in a bar, so it doesn’t count as cash; moisturizing cream, gel soap, wet wipes to cool off, disposable tissues or duo comfort rolls, …

The authorized liquids are a maximum of one liter in containers of a maximum of 100 ml. This means that you can carry a maximum of 10 items of 100ml and all inside a transparent bag with closure (which displays dimensions of 20cmx20cm).

– A mini first aid kit

It is always necessary to bring a small first aid kit when traveling, to deal with small unforeseen events. Some painkillers, bandages, antihistamines are some of the things you should bring.

Always have your boarding pass, passport and money with you. Ideal in a briefcase with RFID, to avoid credit card cloning and identity theft, which are increasingly common in large airports.

– AC adapter

Always carry the correct power adapter with you for the country you are traveling to, ideally an adapter with multiple USB sockets so that you can plug more than one item into a single outlet at a time to charge your mobile phone, camera or tablets, …
