How to survive the flight to Ballarat?
Depending on where you’re coming from, your flight to Ballarat could be a piece of cake or it could drag on forever. We’ve rounded up some useful tips that will help you start your next unforgettable escape on a positive note.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • Firstly, and most importantly, put in your passport, important documents, bank cards and daily medications. Next, you’ll need some extra in-flight entertainment to while away the hours. A juicy book and a phone filled with your favorite movies are some fantastic options. If you hope to take a short nap, a neck pillow and some earplugs will also be useful. Finally, leave space for a toothbrush and some facial wipes so you’ll touchdown looking and feeling fresh.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Squeeze all your full-sized bottles of hair gel and hairspray in your checked baggage. Any liquids or gels in your carry-on suitcase larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) will be confiscated by authorities. Pointed or sharp objects, like your trusty Swiss Army knife, and products which are explosive or flammable, such as aerosol cans, spray paint and strong acids, are also prohibited.

What to wear on a flight:

  • Comfort should be your priority when choosing what to wear during your flight. Consider your choice of footwear carefully too, as swollen feet are a common occurrence. Shoes which are flat and slightly roomy are always a smart option.
  • The result of sustained periods of inactivity, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot condition that can affect passengers on long-distance flights. But the good news is there are numerous ways to significantly reduce your risk of developing it. Drink plenty of water, get up and walk around the cabin as much as possible and wear compression socks or tights.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Ballarat?
The trick is to be well prepared before you reach the airport security gate. That way, you’ll be hopping onto that plane to Ballarat in no time at all. Follow these tips and get your trip off to a great start:

  • Airport security personnel first need to know that you have a valid ID and boarding pass before you’re allowed to proceed any further. Have them ready for inspection.
  • Next up, both you and your carry-on bag will be X-rayed. To make the process quick and painless, take off anything that is likely to trigger the alarm. Personal belongings such as your belt, jacket and headphones need to go through the machine.
  • Your electronic gadgets like phones and laptops will also have to go on a tray for inspection. No need to worry though, you’ll be back online before you know it.
  • Want to bring along your favorite cologne? As long as it’s in a container no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a zip-close bag, you’re allowed to bring it with you in your carry-on.
  • Choosing your footwear wisely can save you valuable minutes. Hiking or heavy-style boots are often required to be removed and separately scanned. Slip-on sneakers are usually not.
