Airport Tips

Air travel can be fun and exciting but it can also be stressful. Here are some tips to help your air travel go as smoothly as possible.

Know what to expect from your airline

Each airline has a different set of rules and regulations. It is important to know what to expect before you leave. Does the airline charge for luggage? What are the size and weight requirements? How early should I be at the gate? We can help you navigate these questions and answers.

Be prepared to remove your shoes

If you have never flown before, this is an essential tip. If you are between the ages of 13 and 75, you can expect to remove your shoes during the security process. Wearing shoes that are easy to slip on and off will make this go quicker and smoother. Also, comfortable shoes are a must. Some airports are quite large and you may spend a good amount of time walking to your gate.

Pack your essentials in a carry-on bag

Always pack your most essential items (such as medications) in a carry-on bag. Although it is generally rare, sometimes your luggage doesn't make it to your destination with you. Keeping your essentials with you will help mitigate those issues.

Arrive two hours early

Depending on the size of the airport and the day/time of your flight, it may take longer than normal to get through ticketing and security. Planning for the unexpected will help to ensure that you don't miss your flight.
