How to survive the flight to Athens?
No matter where you’re coming from, flying can be an enjoyable experience if you’ve planned ahead. Check out these handy tips that will get your Athens vacation started on the right note.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • The trick to having an awesome flight experience is to pack ahead. Start with the essentials: passport, travel documents, credit cards and medications. Next, bring on board items that’ll help keep you busy, like your laptop or a juicy novel. You’ll also want to bring your chargers, a neck pillow and a pair of headphones. Finally, be sure to toss in toiletry items like a toothbrush, facial wipes and a spare set of clothes.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Leave all your full-sized bottles of shampoo and conditioner in your checked luggage. Any gels or liquids in your carry-on bag larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) will be confiscated by authorities. Sharp objects, like your precious Swiss Army knife, and products which are flammable or explosive, such as flares, chemicals agents and fuels, are also banned.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The goal here is to feel as comfortable as you can. Layer up in natural fibers and remember to pack a cardigan in case it gets cool. Pick a pair of roomy, flat shoes as your feet may swell during the flight. Leave the stilettos and heavy hiking boots in your checked luggage.
  • Unfortunately, one risk of flying long distances is developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clotting condition caused by prolonged periods of inactivity. To prevent this from happening, take every opportunity to wander around the cabin. Compression socks and tights are another great idea to help minimize this risk.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Athens?
The trick is to be well organized before you arrive at security. That way, you’ll be hopping onto that plane to Athens in a flash. Follow these tips and get your trip off to a fantastic start:

  • Airport security personnel first need to check that you have a valid ID and travel documents before you’re allowed to proceed any further. Keep them within easy reach.
  • Time to strip down. Well sort of. Your belt, jacket, keys and other small items, like your earphones, will need to go through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process easier by removing them before your turn arrives.
  • For just a few minutes, you’ll have to unplug from technology. Your laptop, phone and any other electronics will also need to go through the scanner.
  • Remove gels and liquids from your carry-on bag. They often need to be sent through the X-ray machine separately. Each product should be no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit inside a single quart-size (one liter), clear zip-close bag.
  • Choosing your footwear wisely can save you a few precious minutes. Hiking boots are often required to be removed and X-rayed separately. Slip-on shoes usually aren’t.
  • Sharp items such as knives and scissors are prohibited in the cabin. They’ll be confiscated at security, so pack them safely away in your checked baggage.
