How to survive the flight to Kota Kinabalu?
Wherever you’re coming from, flying can be an enjoyable experience if you’ve prepared well enough. We’ve put together a list of handy tips that will get your Kota Kinabalu holiday started on the right foot.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • First and foremost, pack in your passport, important documents, bank cards and vital medications. Next, you’ll need some entertainment to help pass the time. A juicy novel and a phone filled with your favourite shows are some terrific options. If you hope to take a short snooze, a neck pillow and a pair of earplugs will also come in handy. Finally, squeeze in a few toiletry items to ensure you arrive at your destination looking fresh and raring to go.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Make sure you don’t have sharp or pointed objects hiding in the bottom of your carry-on luggage. Other prohibited items include flammable or explosive goods, such as aerosol cans and fuel, and liquids and gels in containers with a volume of more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • Your number one priority is to make yourself as comfortable as you can. Layer up with loose, natural-fibre clothing and remember to pack a cardigan in case it gets cool in the cabin. Go for a pair of well-fitting, flat shoes as your feet may swell during the flight. Leave the stilettos and chunky boots in your luggage.
  • Unfortunately, one risk of flying long distances is developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clotting condition caused by lengthy periods of inactivity. To prevent this from happening, take every opportunity to walk around the cabin and stretch your legs. Compression socks and tights are another simple way to help reduce this risk.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Kota Kinabalu?
The answer is simple — be organised. We’ve rounded up some helpful hints for a stress-free trip through airport security. Watch out Kota Kinabalu, here you come:

  • Your boarding pass and travel ID will need to be presented to airport security personnel. Keep them handy so you don’t hold up the queue.
  • The X-ray machine is up next. Empty your pockets and remove anything that is likely to set off the scanner’s alarm. This includes items like headphones or earphones, as well as heavy jackets or coats. They’ll need to be placed on the conveyor belt for screening.
  • Electronic devices like phones and laptops will also need to go on a tray to be scanned. Don’t worry, you’ll be back online before you know it.
  • Any liquids or gels, such as perfume or toothpaste, that you want to take on board need to be in containers no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). Also, everything must fit inside a quart-size (one litre), clear zip-lock bag.
  • Slip-on shoes are a clever footwear choice as you’re less likely to be asked to remove them when going through security. Boots and heavier-style shoes are usually subjected to additional screening.
  • Airlines won’t allow any sharp items or pocket knives in your carry-on baggage. If you must bring these kinds of items, pack them safely in your checked luggage.
