Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Make sure you don’t have sharp objects (like a knife or scissors) hiding in your hand luggage. Other prohibited items include explosive or flammable substances, like aerosols and matches, and gels and liquids in containers with a volume of more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • The aisles of an aircraft are no fashion runway. Layer yourself up with comfortable clothes and don’t forget to bring a sweater as the temperature can drop inside the cabin. Flat, slightly roomy shoes are also recommended.
  • The result of lengthy periods of inactivity, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a serious condition that can affect some passengers during long flights. The good news is there are numerous ways to lower your risk of developing it. Drink plenty of water, get up and walk around the cabin as often as possible and wear compression socks to help improve your circulation.

  • Electronic devices like phones and laptops will also have to go through the machine for inspection. Don’t worry though, you’ll be back online before you know it.
  • Can’t travel without your favorite cologne? Not a problem. As long as the volume is no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a clear zip-close bag, you’re permitted to bring it with you in your carry-on luggage.
