Check what’s included in your ticket

There are often different baggage allowance levels. If you check in your baggage, make sure you keep the receipt safe. Without the receipt it will be far more difficult to trace your baggage were it to go missing.

Mark your baggage

Make your baggage easier to spot by marking it in a way that makes it easier to identify. Bear in mind you often don’t need to take as much as you think you do, in other words, pack light. That’s better for both you and the baggage handlers. If you prefer to travel light and take hand baggage only, don’t forget to check the size of liquids in your hand baggage.

You can often pre-order food on the aircraft

If you are eating inflight, don't forget that there’s often only one meal service. So, don’t go to sleep before the food is served, you may not get a second chance to be served later.

Make sure you drink plenty of fluids

Pile up with entertainment

Download your favorite movies, TV series and music, so you can listen and watch if there’s no WiFi onboard. Did you know you can also download maps? Download a map when you have an internet connection, so you can access it when you have no connection but don't want to get lost.

Bring some extra energy

Pack a Powerbank, so you can charge your devices. Even though many aircrafts now have USB sockets, not all of them do.
