How to survive the flight to Grand Island?
Depending on where you’re coming from, your flight to Grand Island could be completely stress-free or it could drag on forever. We’ve rounded up some handy tips that will help you start your next unforgettable escape on the right foot.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • The secret to having a stress-free flight experience is to pack in advance. Start with the essentials: passport, boarding pass, bank cards and daily medications. Next, take on board items that’ll help while away those hours, like some electronic gadgets or a few magazines. It’s also smart to bring your chargers, a neck pillow and a pair of earphones. And of course, don’t forget to toss in toiletry items like a toothbrush, cleansing wipes and a spare change of clothes.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Double-check that you don’t have sharp objects (like a pocket knife) lurking in your hand luggage. Other prohibited items include explosive or flammable goods, such as bleach and fuel, and liquids and gels in containers larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • The key to a comfortable flight often lies in your choice in clothes. Prepare yourself for varying temperatures by bringing layers. That way you’ll stay nice and warm if the cabin starts to cool down. Shoes like stilettos, flip flops and lace-up boots are best left in your checked suitcase. Instead, opt for flat, closed-toed footwear like sneakers. Your feet will thank you for it.
  • Most of us have heard about DVT (deep vein thrombosis), a blood clot condition caused by long periods of sitting. There are plenty of ways to lower your risk. Wear a pair of compression tights or socks, drink lots of water and remember to keep your legs and feet moving. Do a few laps of the cabin or try out some simple stretches in your seat.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Grand Island?
Being organized before your flight will help make your getaway to Grand Island easy and painless. Below are some handy tips and tricks for a swift journey through security:

  • Be sure to keep your boarding pass and passport easily accessible. They’re the first items you’ll be asked to present to airport security.
  • Time to strip down. Well sort of. Your jacket, belt, keys and other contents of your pockets, like your headphones, will be required to go through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process easier by removing them before your turn arrives.
  • For just a few moments, you’ll have to unplug from the digital world. Your phone, tablet and any other electronic gadgets will also need to be sent through the scanner.
  • Remember to remove liquids and gels from your carry-on bag. They usually need to be sent through the X-ray separately. Each product should be in a container no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit inside a quart-size (one liter), clear zip-lock bag.
  • Choosing your footwear wisely can save you a few precious minutes. Hiking boots are often required to be removed and X-rayed separately. Slip-on sneakers usually aren’t.
  • Knives and other sharp items are not allowed in the cabin. They’ll be confiscated at security, so put them in your checked baggage.
