How to survive the flight to Hilo?
We’ve got the lowdown on how to make your journey as stress-free as possible. Follow our insider tips and you’ll be speeding through airport security and discovering Hilo in no time.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • First and foremost, put in your passport, travel documents, bank cards and vital medications. Next, you’ll need some extra in-flight entertainment to while away the time. A juicy novel and a laptop crammed with your favorite shows are some wonderful options. If you plan to catch more than just forty winks, a quality neck pillow and a pair of noise-canceling headphones will also be useful. Finally, make room for a few toiletry items to ensure you touchdown feeling fresh and raring to go.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Pack all your full-sized bottles of hair gel and hairspray in your checked baggage. Any liquids or gels in your carry-on suitcase larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) will be confiscated by security. Pointed or sharp objects, like your treasured pocket knife, and dangerous products which are explosive or flammable, such as flares, bleaching agents and strong acids, are also restricted.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The long, narrow aisles of your plane are no fashion runway. Wear comfortable clothes and don’t forget to bring a sweater as it can get chilly inside the cabin during long-haul flights. Flat, slightly roomy shoes are also recommended.
  • Unfortunately, a risk of long-distance flying is developing DVT (deep vein thrombosis), a blood clot condition caused by extended periods of inactivity. To prevent this from happening, take every opportunity to stretch your legs and walk around the cabin. Compression socks and tights are another simple way to help reduce this risk.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Hilo?
The trick is to be well organized before you get to security. That way, you’ll be boarding that plane to Hilo in no time flat. Follow these tips and get your vacation off to a spectacular start:

  • Your boarding pass and passport will need to be inspected by airport security. Keep them someplace accessible to avoid fumbling around for them.
  • Time to strip down. Well sort of. Your belt, coat, keys and other items in your pocket, like your earphones, will need to go through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process faster by removing them as it gets closer to your turn.
  • All your electronics, including your phone and tablet, must also be scanned separately.
  • Any liquids or gels, such as lip balm or cologne, that you want to take on board must be no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). Also, they all must fit inside a quart-size (one liter), zip-lock bag.
  • Choosing your footwear wisely can save you several precious minutes. Boots and bulky shoes are often required to be removed and X-rayed separately. Lightweight sneakers usually aren’t.
  • Sharp or pointed items can’t be taken on board. They’ll be seized at security, so pack them in your checked bags.
