With only a month or two left of summer, many of us are trying to squeeze in one last getaway.  But if you have hearing loss, airports can be a stressful place.  ‘Everydayhearing.com’ has put together some fantastic tips on how someone with hearing aids or cochlear implants can get through the airport and their flights stress free.  Here is rule #1:
“The best and safest way to travel on a plane with your hearing aids and/or cochlear implant is to wear them! Not only will this help to ensure that they are not lost in misplaced luggage, but you will be able to better hear the safety instructions of the airline and security personnel, as well as notifications about gate changes or flight delays.”

Summer travel is supposed to be fun and stress-free.  Take advantage of it if you can, and don’t let airports stress you out. Hearing aids and cochlear implants have been provided to make our lives easier, and that includes when we’re traveling.  Use them!
