Flight Tips For First Time Travellers

Pre-Flight Precautions and Advices 

  • A very useful tip is to read about airport procedures and baggage rules beforehand. It will give you a sense of awareness and make you a little relaxed. 
  • According to the baggage guidelines, weigh your luggage at home to be sure and also attach a little ribbon or something to make it easily identifiable. 
  • Double check all your documents and passport and set reminders so that you don’t forget any of it (since it’s your first time, eventually it’ll naturally come to you!)
  • Two words – Travel Insurance!
  • Do not go for fancy clothing, dress in your most comfortable clothes (especially if it’s a long ride).
  • Preferably get your own food and water and carry necessary in- flight accessories (inflatable pillows, headrests, etc.) and ensure packing items for your own entertainment. 
  • Once you have your e-ticket, pre-select your seats and meals. Also, register your phone number with the airline for necessary updates and access.
  • Exchange your currency beforehand or online, if possible. It would really prove helpful. 
  • Checkout essential packing tips to help you with packing.

Pre-Boarding Precautions and Advices

  • Keep your ticket handy at the terminal.
  • Check in online and arrive at the airport nearly 3 hours early to get familiar with everything. 
  • First of all, it’s completely okay to be anxious during the security procedures so dont think it’s only you. Many frequent flyers get anxious as well.
  • Keep tracking your flight status, climate and luggage. It’s a mis-matched combination for advice but just take it!
  • See if lounge access comes with your credit card. 
  • Be alert at the airport and remember your flight details so as to not miss updates and announcements!
