Taking a flight can be a confusing and arduous task. Here are a few tips on what you can do to make your experience less cumbersome. If you need transportation to the airport the best thing to do is to arrange your ride in advance. Below you will find more tips to help you with your travel plans.
- Get to the airport at least 2 hours before your flight takes off. This will give you time to get your luggage checked in, go through the security lines, and grab a bite to eat. More people are traveling during the holidays so if you are traveling during the holidays, add an additional hour.
- Use the airline’s kiosk machine to print your boarding pass and pay for luggage. This will save you lots of time waiting in long lines. After you have your boarding pass ticket, usually the airline provider will have an express line that you will be able to stand in (as opposed to waiting in the long line with people who have no clue of what’s going on).
- Review the current TSA rules for carrying liquids such as lotions, perfume or even tooth paste. It is best to buy travel sizes or you could purchase liquids and various other items after you go through security.
