One of the most frequent questions I get asked these days is, "how was flying during a pandemic?" This is a pretty loaded question and everyone has different levels of comfort right now for pretty much everything having to do with the pandemic. I'm not going to tell you what is safe and what isn't safe, but I think these questions are good to ask yourself as parents before flying!
Can your kids wear a mask the entire plane ride?
Can your kids keep their hands to themselves, for the most part?
Is the airline selling middle seats?
Are there a lot of people in the airports?
What should I bring?
A few more important things to mention is that most airlines are giving out sanitizing wipes when you board the airplane. The airlines are also very strict with mask policies on board mandating that your mask covers your nose and mouth and they will wake up anyone whose mask has fallen down during sleep on the airplane.
Overall, we have flown a few times during the pandemic with our kids and have done so in a safe way. If you think you can keep your distance, wash your hands, wear your masks and follow the CDC guidelines then take a big deep breathe and get on that plane!
