Can’t fly comfortably or don’t like flying? This checklist for flying will help you be more comfortable and make flying hassle free. This checklist will help you with your city trips, backpacking trips and your budget trips.
Wear comfortable clothing and shoes. It is very important to wear comfortable clothing and shoes, as you will be wearing it for some time. If possible, don’t wear a belt. This is only annoying at the airports security and uncomfortable on your flight.
Check in online
Checking in online is quick and easy. If you do this, you don’t have to wait in a line and can immediately check in your luggage when you arrive at the airport.
Have something that can keep you busy for some time. Have movies or series on your phone/tablet that you can watch in your down time. If you like reading, have a book or kindle with you.
Rather be safe than sorry. You never know what the traffic or weather conditions are going to be like, so be prepared for anything and leave a little bit earlier than planned.
Don’t use your own car
Use the train or bus to get to the airport. A taxi is also a good option, but do not go with your car and leave it in the parking garage. This is extremely expensive and therefore unnecessary. You can also ask a friend to take you to the airport, but just remember that they maybe have to work or may have something else planned already.
Be quick with in between layovers
If you have a layover, move fast. Even if your next flight is in a while, locate your next gate before you start your airport sightseeing or shopping. You never know how far it is or how hard it is to find your gate, some airports are ginormous.
Take extra vitamins and minerals a week before your flight and have a small bottle of hand sanitizer on the plane with you. There are a lot of germs and bacteria on an airplane. The plane cannot be thoroughly cleaned every time it lands, so it’s not the cleanest place you’ll ever be and you don’t want to run the risk of getting sick on holiday.
This checklist for flying should help you have a successful flight and a good start to your holiday.
