If you’re poorly prepared, airports and flying can be tough. But there’s no need to panic. Follow these useful tips and enjoy a worry-free start to your vacation in Akure.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • Air travel can be easy if you’ve got all the right things. Firstly, you’ll want some toiletry items, such as deodorant and a toothbrush, a fresh change of clothes and a few magazines. Secondly, leave space in your hand luggage for your electronic gadgets, chargers, any vital medications and maybe a comfy neck pillow as well. Lastly, and most importantly, don’t forget to take your passport, travel docs and your bank cards.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • While the list of banned items can differ between airlines, the general rule of thumb is nothing flammable, sharp or explosive. This includes things like screwdrivers, blades, fireworks and fuel. Sporting equipment like golf clubs, and objects that could injure passengers, such as pepper spray and guns, can’t come on board with you either.

What to wear on a flight:

  • Comfort should be your highest priority when selecting what to wear during your flight. Consider your choice of footwear carefully too, as swollen feet and ankles are a common side effect of flying. Flat, slightly roomy shoes are always a sensible way to go.
  • Caused by lengthy periods of inactivity, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a condition that can affect passengers on long-haul flights. The good news is there are ways to reduce your risk of developing it. Keep your fluids up, walk around the cabin as often as you can and wear compression socks or tights.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Akure?
A little pre-planning before your flight can make your trip to Akure quick and painless. Read through our handy tips for a speedy journey through security:

  • Be sure to have your passport and boarding pass close by. They’re the first things you’ll be asked to show at airport security.
  • The X-ray machine comes next. Remove anything on you that is likely to beep. This includes things like headphones or earphones, as well as bulky coats or jackets. They’ll all need to go on the X-ray conveyor belt.
  • All electronic devices, including your tablet and phone, must also be separately scanned.
  • Any gels or liquids, such as perfume or hairspray, that you want to take on board need to be in containers no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). Also, they all must fit inside a quart-size (one liter), clear zip-lock bag.
  • The right choice of footwear can save you several minutes. Boots and heavy shoes are often required to be removed and separately scanned. Slip-on shoes usually aren’t.
  • Airlines won’t allow any sharp objects in the cabin. If you need to bring these kinds of items, pack them in your checked baggage.
