If you’re on an overnight flight, a considerably long flight or lucky enough to score a business- or first-class seat on a plane, you’ll likely receive an in-flight amenity kit, which might contain travel-sized versions of basic necessities like an eye mask, earplugs and hand lotion. Here are some of the industry’s best amenity kits.

 

Delta Air Lines
Delta’s TUMI amenity kits that are given out to business-class passengers have undergone a recent makeover and now include new products from fragrance company Le Labo. Kits also include a pair of socks from Bombas, and for each pair of socks given to passengers, Bombas donates a pair to Covenant House to help homeless youth.

 

United Airlines
United passengers are gifted with amenity kits that include a small bottle of hand sanitizer and toothpaste, just like most other kits, but what sets United apart is its charitable use of unused kits. United flight attendants collect the unused items from unused kits and donate them to Clean the World ,where volunteers repackage them into new hygiene kits for women, children and veterans around the world.

 

Virgin Atlantic
Widely known for its style and flair, Virgin Atlantic’s amenity kits are no different. Named Goodie Bags, they come with compostable toothbrushes, pens and REN Clean skincare products.

 

Finnair
Four new designs for Finnair’s amenity kits were introduced in March and feature eco-friendly touches like cardboard bands around the outside of the kits, wax paper wrapping and cornstarch bio-plastic toothbrushes.

 

Icelandair
Icelandair recently launched four new amenity kits for Saga Premium seats that celebrate four of Iceland’s indigenous animals: puffin, arctic fox, Icelandic horse and raven. The vegan leather kits include items like biodegradable toothbrushes and socks made from recyclable materials.

Netflix Shows You Can’t Watch in the United States

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
