How to survive the flight to Dire Dawa?
Depending on where you’re coming from, your journey to Dire Dawa could be simple and straightforward or it could drag on forever. We’ve pulled together some tips that will help you start your next great adventure on the right foot.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • The trick to having a worry-free flight experience is to pack in advance. First up, the essentials: passport, boarding pass, bank cards and any vital medications. Next, take on board items that’ll help while away those hours, like your laptop or a magazine. It’s also a wise idea to pack your chargers, a neck pillow and a pair of earplugs. And of course, be sure to chuck in toiletry items like a toothbrush, deodorant and a spare set of clothes.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Check carefully that you don’t have a pocket knife hiding in the bottom of your carry-on luggage. Other restricted items include flammable or explosive products, such as aerosol cans and fuel, and liquids and gels in containers with a volume of more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • Your aim here is to make yourself as comfortable as possible. Dress in loose, natural-fiber clothing and pack a cardigan in case it gets chilly in the cabin. Go for a pair of flat, well-fitting shoes as it’s possible that your feet and ankles will swell during the journey. Leave the high heels and heavy boots in your main luggage.
  • Unfortunately, one risk of long-distance travel is developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clotting condition caused by extended periods of inactivity. To avoid this, take every opportunity to wander around the cabin. Compression socks and tights are also a great idea to help minimize this risk.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Dire Dawa?
It’s easy — be prepared. We’ve pulled together some handy tips and tricks for a hassle-free trip through airport security. Look out Dire Dawa, here you come:

  • Security personnel first need to see that you have a valid passport and boarding pass before you can proceed any further. Have them in your hand, ready for inspection.
  • Time to strip down. Well kind of. Your jacket, belt, keys and other small items, like your headphones, will need to go through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process easier by removing them before your turn arrives.
  • All electronic devices, including your phone and tablet, are also required to be separately scanned.
  • Any liquids or gels, such as perfume or hairspray, that you want to bring on board must be no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). Also, they all must fit inside a quart-size (one liter), zip-lock bag.
  • The right choice of footwear can save you a few precious minutes. Boots are often required to be removed and separately scanned. Lightweight sneakers are usually not.
  • Airlines won’t allow any sharp or pointed objects to come on board with you. If you need to bring these kinds of items, check them in.
