We’ve got the lowdown on how to make your flight as enjoyable as possible. Follow our top tips and you’ll be cruising through airport security and discovering Calabar in no time at all.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • The trick to having an awesome flight experience is to pack in advance. Start with the essentials: passport, official ID, cash and any vital medications. Next, bring items that’ll help keep you busy, like your laptop or a thrilling novel. It’s also wise to bring your chargers, a neck pillow and a pair of earplugs. Last but not least, be sure to pop in toiletries like a toothbrush, deodorant and a spare change of clothes.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Leave all your full-sized bottles of shampoo and hair gel in your checked baggage. Any liquids in your carry-on bag larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) will be confiscated. Sharp objects, like your Swiss Army knife, and dangerous goods which are explosive or flammable, such as aerosol cans, spray paint and matches, are also prohibited.

What to wear on a flight:

  • Comfort really should be your number one priority when picking what to wear on board. Consider your footwear choice with care too, as swollen feet are a common side effect of flying. Flat, slightly roomy shoes are your best bet.
  • Most of us have heard about DVT (deep vein thrombosis), a blood clotting condition caused by prolonged periods of sitting. There are numerous ways to lessen your risk. Wear compression socks or tights, drink plenty of water and keep your legs and feet moving. Do a lap or two of the cabin or perform some stretches in your seat.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Calabar?
Being organized before your flight will help make your getaway to Calabar a piece of cake. Check out our handy tips for a swift journey past security:

  • Security personnel first need to know that you have a valid ID and travel documents before anything else. Keep them within easy reach.
  • The X-ray machine is up next. Empty your pockets and remove anything that is likely to set off the scanner’s alarm. This includes things like headphones or earphones, as well as heavy coats or jackets. They’ll all need to go on the X-ray conveyor belt.
  • For just a few minutes, you’ll have to unplug from the digital world. Your laptop, phone and any other electronic gadgets will also need to go through the scanner.
  • Any liquids or gels, such as perfume or hand cream, that you want to take on board need to be in containers no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). Also, everything must fit inside a quart-size (one liter), clear zip-lock bag.
  • It’s also likely that you’ll need to take your shoes off for scanning, so wearing lightweight sneakers is always a smart idea.
  • Avoid taking prohibited items in your carry-on bag. If you have any sharp or pointed objects, pack them in your checked baggage. They won’t be allowed on board and will be confiscated.
