Here’s How To Keep Your Belongings Safe From Airplane Cabin Thieves

Getting some shut-eye on a long flight is a great way to ward off jet lag and arrive at your destination as fresh as possible; however, it can also make you and your belongings vulnerable to thieves.

Though we all would like to think that plane cabins are some of the most secure spots on the planet, the fact remains that nefarious individuals looking to swipe items like phones, passports, cameras, or credit cards operate can sometimes prowl the aisles looking for unwary passengers. Here’s how to keep your stuff safe.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

If you think you’ve had something stolen on your flight, alert your flight staff immediately. Depending on the item and the circumstances, they may be able to arrange for law enforcement to meet the plane as it lands.
