How to survive the flight to Kuala Lumpur?
Depending on where you’re coming from, your journey to Kuala Lumpur could be simple and straightforward or it could go on forever. We’ve pulled together some useful travel tips that will help you start your next big adventure on the right foot.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • Firstly, and most importantly, pack your passport, travel docs, bank cards and vital medications. Next, you’ll need some entertainment to help pass the time. A thrilling novel and a phone filled with your favourite shows are good options. If you intend to catch more than just forty winks, a quality neck pillow and a pair of earplugs will also be useful. Finally, leave some space for a toothbrush and some facial wipes so you’ll arrive looking and feeling fresh.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Double-check that you don’t have a Swiss Army knife hiding in one of the zippers of your hand luggage. Other banned items include flammable or explosive goods, like aerosols and matches, and gels and liquids in containers larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • Your goal here is to make yourself as comfortable as possible. Layer up in breathable clothing and pack a sweater in case it gets chilly in the cabin. Always opt for roomy, flat shoes as it’s possible that your feet and ankles will swell a little during the journey. Leave the stilettos and chunky boots in your checked luggage.
  • Unfortunately, one risk of flying long-haul is developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clotting condition caused by lengthy periods of inactivity. To avoid this, take every opportunity to walk around and give your legs a stretch. Compression socks and tights are also a great idea to help minimize this risk.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Kuala Lumpur?
As savvy travellers know, the secret is to be organised before you reach the airport security gate. That way, you’ll be hopping onto that plane to Kuala Lumpur in the blink of an eye. Follow these helpful tips and get your trip off to a fantastic start:

  • Your ID and travel documents will need to be presented to airport security. Have them close by so you don’t hold up the queue.
  • Next up is the X-ray machine. Remove anything on you that is likely to beep. This includes things like headphones or earphones, as well as heavy coats or jackets. They’ll need to be placed on the conveyor belt for screening.
  • For just a few minutes, you’ll have to unplug from the digital world. Your laptop, phone and any other electronic devices will need to go through the scanner.
  • Don’t forget to remove gels and liquids from your carry-on bag. They usually need to be sent through the X-ray separately. Each item should be in a container no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit inside a quart-size (one litre), clear zip-close bag.
  • Lightweight sneakers are a sensible footwear choice as you’re less likely to be asked to remove them when passing through security. Safety boots and other heavy-style shoes are usually subjected to additional screening.
  • Avoid taking prohibited items in your carry-on bag. If you have any sharp or pointed objects, put them in your checked luggage. They won’t be allowed in the cabin.
