  • First and foremost, put in your passport, important documents, credit cards and vital medications. Next, you’ll need some entertainment to help pass the time. A thrilling novel and a laptop filled with your favourite shows are some terrific options. If you plan to catch forty winks, a neck pillow and a pair of earplugs will also be useful. Finally, find room for a few toiletry items to ensure you step off the plane looking and feeling fresh.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Check carefully that you don’t have a Swiss Army knife lurking in the bottom of your hand luggage. Other restricted items include explosive or flammable substances, like aerosols and matches, and gels and liquids in containers with a capacity of more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • The long, narrow aisles of an airplane are no fashion runway. Layer up with comfy clothing and take a sweater as the temperature can drop inside the cabin on long-haul flights. Flat, enclosed shoes are also a wise idea.
  • The serious condition known as DVT (deep vein thrombosis) can pose a risk on long-distance flights. It’s the result of blood clotting due to inactivity and poor circulation. Walking up and down the aisle and doing foot and leg exercises in your seat is a great way to prevent this from happening. Wearing a quality pair of compression socks can also help.
