The last thing you want when traveling is added stress. With these five tips, you'll get through the airport in a breeze and without a hair out of place (or prematurely grey)!
Download The App
"It seems like a no-brainer, but sometimes people overlook using their airline’s apps. Even if you only keep it around during your trip, having your carrier’s app can give you vital info as soon as it’s available. Knowing the moment your flight is delayed or canceled will give you an edge when rebooking or making other arrangements. Most apps also give you a way to communicate more directly with your airline should the need arise."
Check in 24-hours before your flight
"Unless you require a particular seat, I recommend waiting until you can select a free seat 24 hours before your flight. This allows you to avoid waiting in the check-in line at the airport, which is great if you’re traveling with just carry-on luggage.
For those who need to check their luggage, head to the airline kiosk to print your baggage tag (and boarding pass if you don’t already have an electronic copy). This can save you time and you might be allowed to head straight to the baggage line after, instead of waiting in the check-in line."
Pick The Right Lines
"Pick the security line that's all the way to the left. Research has found that because most people are right handed, they gravitate towards the right, leaving security lines on the left with fewer people. Or, pick the security line with the fewest TSA agents. If all the lines are equally long, choose the one with only one lone TSA agent staring at the computer. If there are two, chances are that one of them is being trained, and that pretty much every item will be stopped as it goes through the x-ray."
Take Care Of Your Passport
"Have a specific place on your person for your passport that is easy and accessible. You will have to show it many times but you don’t want to put it down so that it gets lost. Always return it to the same place."
"Style and comfort, it's not too much to ask is it? But finding Airport appropriate attire whereby you can board in comfort without compromising on style, can sometimes be difficult. I try to stick to a muted colour palette and by muted I generally mean black, you simply can't go wrong. I opt for comfortable yet well cut stretch fabrics when it comes to my denim and cashmere jumpers are always at the top of the list for warmth and softness during the festive season. A blazer adds sophistication whilst easily being slipped off to pass through security. To finish I opt for comfortable slip on boots, because laces are a no-no for efficiency when passing through security."
