How to survive the flight to Council Bluffs?
Depending on where you’re coming from, your flight to Council Bluffs could be a breeze or it could go on forever. We’ve put together some handy tips that will help you start your next big adventure on a positive note.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • The secret to having an amazing travel experience is to pack in advance. Start with the essentials: passport, travel docs, bank cards and medications. Next, take on board items that’ll help pass the time, like some electronic devices or a magazine. It’s also a wise idea to bring your chargers, a comfy neck pillow and a pair of noise-canceling headphones. And of course, be sure to toss in toiletry items like a toothbrush, cleansing wipes and a fresh set of clothes.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • While the list of banned items can differ between air carriers, the general rule of thumb is nothing sharp, flammable or explosive. This includes things like tools, metal cutlery, fireworks and fuel. Sports equipment like ski poles, and items that could harm passengers, such as pepper spray and firearms, won’t be allowed on board either.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The answer to a comfortable flight can be as simple as your choice of clothing. Prepare for temperature changes by layering up. That way you’ll stay nice and warm if the cabin gets too cold. 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 slip-ons. Your feet will thank you for it.
  • The result of lengthy periods of inactivity, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot condition that can affect passengers during long flights. But the great news is there are proven ways to significantly reduce your risk of developing it. Stay well hydrated, wander through the cabin wherever possible and wear compression socks or tights.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Council Bluffs?
It’s all about being prepared. We’ve put together some useful tips for a stress-free trip through security. Look out Council Bluffs, here you come:

  • Be sure to keep your ID and travel documents handy. They’re the first items you’ll be asked for by security.
  • Next up, both you and your carry-on luggage must be X-rayed. To make the process quick and painless, take off anything that is likely to set the alarm off. Items like your belt, coat and headphones will be required to go through the machine.
  • For just a few moments, you’ll have to unplug from the digital world. Your phone, laptop and any other electronic gadgets must also go through the scanner.
  • Want to bring along your favorite perfume? 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 zip-close bag, it’s OK to bring with you in your carry-on luggage.
  • It’s also possible you’ll be asked to take your shoes off for scanning, so wearing lightweight sneakers is always a wise idea.
  • Airlines will not allow any sharp objects to come on board with you. If you need to bring these kinds of items, put them in your checked luggage.
