Traveling by plane can be stressful for a number of reasons. Dealing with crowds and security at the airport, making sure you remembered to pack everything important, and a fear of flying are just a few of the stresses you may face. Preparing in advance can lessen the stress and lead to a more enjoyable travel experience. The Transportation Security Administration has several tips for travel, a few of which are listed below.
- Dress for Success: You will inevitably have to go through a security checkpoint before your flight. Make sure you are wearing clothing that makes this process as quick and easy as possible for you. Avoid wearing any clothing or jewelry that may set off the metal detector, such as metal buttons, belt buckles, body piercings, and underwire bras. Remove all heavy jewelry, change, and keys before going through the checkpoint. If you wear loose clothing, you may have to go through additional screening.
- Bring the Necessities: Keep your boarding pass and ID easily accessible until you board the plane.
- Keep it Simple: Remove all loose change, keys, and other metal objects prior to screening. Remove your shoes (yes, this is required). Pack coats and jackets in baggage whenever possible.
