How to survive the flight to Bilbao?
If you’re poorly prepared, air travel can be challenging. But there’s no need to panic. Follow these useful tips and enjoy a worry-free start to your getaway in Bilbao.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • It’s simple — first, put in your passport, travel docs, credit cards and vital medications. Next, you’ll need some in-flight entertainment to help pass the time. A thrilling book and a phone crammed with your favorite shows are some great options. If you intend to catch up on some sleep, a quality neck pillow and a pair of noise-canceling headphones will also be useful. Finally, find room for a toothbrush and some cleansing wipes so you’ll step off the plane feeling fresh as a daisy.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • While the list of prohibited items differs between air carriers, the general rule to follow is avoid carrying anything flammable, sharp or explosive. This includes things like knives, scissors, spray paint and flares. Sports equipment like hockey sticks, and items that could injure passengers, such as firearms and ammunition, aren’t allowed in the cabin either.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The aisles of your aircraft are no place for a fashion parade. Layer up with comfortable clothing and remember to take a sweater as it can get quite cool in the cabin during long-haul flights. Enclosed, flat shoes are also a wise idea.
  • You’ve probably heard about DVT (deep vein thrombosis), a blood clot condition caused by long periods of sitting. There’s lots you can do to lessen your risk. Don a pair of compression tights or socks, stay well hydrated and get your legs and feet moving. Do a few laps of the cabin or perform exercises in your seat.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Bilbao?
The trick is to be well prepared before you reach the airport security gate. That way, you’ll be stepping onto that plane to Bilbao in the blink of an eye. Follow these tips and get your vacation off to a fantastic start:

  • Your travel documents and passport will need to be shown to airport security personnel. Keep them someplace accessible so you don’t hold up the queue.
  • The X-ray machine is up next. Remove anything metal on you that is likely to set off the scanner’s alarm. This includes items like headphones or earphones, as well as your coat or jacket. They’ll need to be placed on the conveyor belt for screening.
  • For just a few minutes, you’ll have to unplug from the digital world. Your phone, laptop and any other electronic gadgets will also need to go through the scanner.
  • Traveling with a new cologne? Not a problem. As long as it’s in a container no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a clear zip-lock bag, it’s OK to bring with you in your carry-on baggage.
  • Slip-on shoes are a practical footwear choice as you’re less likely to be asked to remove them when going through security. Big boots and other bulky shoes are usually subjected to extra screening.
  • Airlines won’t allow any sharp objects in your carry-on luggage. If you must bring these kinds of items, check them in.
