How to survive the flight to General Santos?
No matter where you’re coming from, flying can be a seamless experience if you prepare well enough. We’ve put together a list of handy travel tips that will help get your General Santos vacation started on the right foot.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • It’s easy — first, put in your passport, official ID, wallet and daily medications. Next, you’ll need some extra in-flight entertainment to while away the hours. A thrilling book and a phone filled with your favorite shows are some wonderful options. If you intend to take a short nap, a neck pillow and a pair of noise-canceling headphones will also be useful. Finally, squeeze in a toothbrush and some facial wipes so you’ll hop off the plane feeling fresh as a daisy.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • While the list of restricted items differs between airlines, the general rule to follow is avoid carrying anything flammable, sharp or explosive. This includes things like screwdrivers, pocket knives, fireworks and fuel. Sports equipment like ice skates, and objects that could harm passengers, such as firearms and swords, won’t be allowed on board either.

What to wear on a flight:

  • Comfort should be the goal when deciding what to wear on board. Consider your choice of footwear carefully too, as swollen ankles and feet can be a side effect of flying. Shoes which are flat and slightly roomy are always a sensible way to go.
  • Caused by sustained periods of immobility, DVT (deep vein thrombosis) is a serious condition that can affect passengers on long-distance flights. The great news is there are ways to reduce the risk of developing it. Drink plenty of water, get up and walk around the cabin as often as you can and wear compression socks or tights.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to General Santos?
It’s all about being organized. We’ve put together some useful tips for a speedy trip through airport security. Look out General Santos, here you come:

  • First things first. Your ID and travel documents will need to be inspected by airport security. Keep them at hand so you don’t have to dig around for them.
  • The X-ray machine is up next. Empty your pockets and remove anything metal that is likely to set off the alarm. This includes things like earphones or headphones, as well as heavy coats or jackets. They’ll all need to go on the X-ray conveyor belt.
  • All your electronics, including your phone and tablet, will also need to be separately scanned.
  • Any liquids or gels, such as lip balm or cologne, that you want to bring on board need to be in containers no greater 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 several valuable minutes. Boots and heavy shoes are often required to be removed and X-rayed separately. Slip-on sneakers are usually not.
