How to survive the flight to Johannesburg?
Wherever you’re coming from, flying can be an enjoyable experience if you prepare well enough. Take a peek at these handy tips that will help get your Johannesburg escape started on the right note.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • First things first, pack your passport, travel docs, bank cards and daily medications. Next, you’ll need some in-flight entertainment to while away the hours. A thrilling novel and a tablet crammed with your favorite movies are some terrific options. If you hope to take a short snooze, a neck pillow and some earplugs will also be useful. Finally, make room for a toothbrush and some facial wipes so you’ll arrive at your destination looking and feeling fresh.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • While the list of restricted items differs between air carriers, 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 baseball bats, and items that could injure passengers, such as firearms and ammunition, won’t be allowed on board either.

What to wear on a flight:

  • Comfort really should be the goal when choosing what to wear on board. Consider your footwear with care too, as swollen feet are quite common. Slightly roomy, flat shoes are always a smart option.
  • It’s likely you’ve heard about DVT (deep vein thrombosis), a blood clotting condition caused by prolonged periods of sitting. There are plenty of ways to minimize your risk. Wear a quality pair of compression socks, drink lots of water often and move your legs and feet. Walk around the cabin when possible or perform some simple exercises in your seat.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Johannesburg?
The simple answer is — be prepared. We’ve pulled together some helpful hints for an easy trip through security. Watch out Johannesburg, here you come:

  • Be sure to have your boarding pass and passport someplace easily accessible. They’ll be the first things you’ll be asked for by security.
  • Your coat, belt, keys and other small items, like your earphones, will need to go through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process easier by removing them before your turn arrives.
  • Your electronic gadgets like laptops and phones will also have to go on a tray to be scanned. Don’t worry, you’ll be back online in no time.
  • Remember to remove liquids and gels from your carry-on bag. They often need to be sent through the X-ray machine separately. Each product should be in a container no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit in a quart-size (one liter), clear zip-lock bag.
  • There’s a chance you’ll be asked to remove your shoes to be X-rayed, so wearing slip-on shoes is always a good idea.
  • Airlines won’t allow any sharp or pointed objects in your carry-on luggage. If you must bring these kinds of items, pack them safely in your checked luggage.
