How to survive the flight to Lake Placid?
If you’re not prepared, air travel can be a real challenge. But there’s no need to hit the panic button just yet. Follow these helpful hints and enjoy a stress-free start to your getaway in Lake Placid.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • A plane ride can be a pleasure if you carry the right things. Firstly, you’ll need toiletry items, such as a toothbrush and some deodorant, a spare pair of socks and a good novel. Next, find a spot in your carry-on bag for your phone and charger, your important medications and maybe a comfy neck pillow as well. Lastly, be sure to take your passport, travel docs and some cash.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Put all your full-sized bottles of hair gel and hairspray in your checked baggage. Any gels or liquids in your carry-on suitcase larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) will be confiscated by authorities. Sharp or pointed objects, like your precious pocket knife, and dangerous goods which are flammable or explosive, such as aerosol cans, spray paint and fuels, are also restricted.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The answer to a comfortable flight can be as simple as your clothing choices. Prepare for changes in temperature by layering up. This will keep you nice and warm if the cabin starts to cool down. Shoes like flip flops and heels are best left for other occasions. Even though they may be your favorites, opt for flat, closed-toed footwear like slip-ons. Your feet will thank you for it.
  • Caused by sustained periods of immobility, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a serious condition that can affect passengers on long-distance flights. The good news is there are ways to reduce the risk of developing it. Stay well hydrated, walk around the cabin as often as possible and wear compression socks or tights.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Lake Placid?
The answer is simple — be organized. We’ve rounded up some helpful hints for a stress-free trip through security. Look out Lake Placid, here you come:

  • Be sure to have your travel documents and ID someplace easily accessible. They’re the first items you’ll be asked to present to airport security.
  • Next up, both you and your carry-on luggage must be X-rayed. To make the process quick and painless, take off anything that is likely to trigger the alarm. Personal belongings such as your belt, jacket and earphones need to go through the machine.
  • Your electronic gadgets like phones and laptops will also have to go through the machine to be scanned. Don’t worry, you’ll be back online in no time.
  • Traveling with a new cologne or perfume? Not a problem. As long as the volume is no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a zip-lock bag, it’s fine to bring with you on board.
  • Lightweight sneakers are a sensible footwear choice as you’re less likely to be required to remove them when going through security. Safety boots and heavier-style shoes are often subjected to additional screening.
  • Take all prohibited items out of your carry-on bag. If you have any sharp objects like a pocket knife or tools, put them in your checked suitcase. They won’t be allowed on board.
