While many would prepare for a 14-hour flight by downloading music and movies and stocking up on melatonin, my plans are usually a bit different. In fact, I get excited for several hours of uninterrupted time to go through invoices, write stories, and focus on my work.
As a bonafide digital nomad, I’ve taken more than 50 flights in the past year and I’ve mastered the fine art of productivity miles high in the air. Though I’d like to think I’m special, freelancers like me and those who travel frequently for business have their own ways to remain focused on work while flying, too.
In addition to the curated Spotify playlists I use to drown out the noise of the cabin or crowded airport around me, I talked to frequent-flying professionals to find the best products for staying productive on a flight.
