How to survive the flight to Chennai?
We’ve rounded up all the info you need to make your flight as enjoyable as possible. Follow our tips and you’ll be breezing through the airport and having a blast in Chennai in no time flat.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • First things first, pack in your passport, travel docs, bank cards and vital medications. Next, you’ll want some in-flight entertainment to while away the hours. A juicy book and a tablet crammed with your favorite shows are always good options. If you hope to catch more than just forty winks, a neck pillow and a pair of earplugs will also be useful. Finally, leave some space for a few toiletry items to ensure you touchdown looking fresh and raring to go.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • While the list of restricted items can differ between air carriers, the general rule of thumb is nothing flammable, sharp or explosive. This includes things like screwdrivers, knives, fuels and bleaching agents. Sporting equipment like hockey sticks, and objects that could harm other people, such as guns and swords, can’t come on board with you either.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The best way to ensure a comfortable flight often lies in your choice in clothes. Prepare for temperature changes by bringing layers. This will keep you nice and warm if the cabin gets chilly. Shoes like flip flops and heels are best left for other occasions. Even though they may be your favorites, go for flat, closed-toed footwear like sneakers. Your feet will appreciate it.
  • You’ve probably heard about DVT (deep vein thrombosis), a blood clotting condition caused by reduced mobility or inactivity. There are plenty of ways to mitigate your risk. Wear a pair of compression socks, drink lots of water and move your legs and feet. Walk the aisles of the cabin or try out some exercises in your seat.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Chennai?
Being prepared before you get to the airport will help make your getaway to Chennai a pleasure. Here are some handy hints for a stress-free journey through security:

  • Airport security personnel first need to know that you have a valid ID and matching boarding pass before anything else. Have them ready to show.
  • Time to strip down. Well kind of. Your belt, jacket, keys and other small items, like coins, will be required to go through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process faster by removing them as your turn draws near.
  • All electronic gadgets, including your phone and laptop, must also be scanned.
  • Can’t travel without your favorite perfume or cologne? As long as the volume is no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a zip-lock bag, you can keep it with you in your carry-on luggage.
  • Choosing your footwear wisely can save you several minutes. Boots and bulky shoes are often required to be removed and separately scanned. Slip-on sneakers usually aren’t.
  • Sharp items such as knives and scissors are not allowed in the cabin. They’ll be seized at security, so pack them in your checked luggage.
