We’ve rounded up all the info you need to make your flight an enjoyable experience. Follow our tips and you’ll be zooming through the airport and seeing the best of Lake Tekapo in no time.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • The secret to having an amazing travel experience is to pack in advance. So, let’s start with the essentials: passport, travel docs, bank cards and medications. Next, bring items that’ll help pass the time, like your laptop or a few magazines. It’s also smart to pack your chargers, a quality neck pillow and a pair of headphones. Last but not least, don’t forget to chuck in toiletries like a toothbrush, lip balm and a fresh set of clothes.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Make sure you don’t have sharp objects (like a knife or scissors) lurking in one of the compartments of your carry-on luggage. Other restricted items include flammable or explosive substances, such as aerosol cans and bleach, and liquids and gels in containers with a volume of more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • Comfort should be your highest priority when deciding what to wear during your flight. Consider your choice of footwear carefully too, as swollen ankles and feet can be a side effect of flying. Flat shoes which are slightly roomy are always a smart option.
  • A condition called deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a risk on long-haul flights. It results from blood clotting due to inactivity and poor circulation. Walking up and down the aisle and doing foot and leg exercises while seated is a great way to prevent this happening. Wearing a pair of compression tights or socks also helps reduce the risk.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Lake Tekapo?
As seasoned travelers know, the secret is to be organized before you arrive at the security gate. That way, you’ll be stepping onto that plane to Lake Tekapo before you know it. Follow these tips and get your vacation off to a spectacular start:

  • Be sure to keep your boarding pass and ID easily accessible. They’re the first things you’ll be asked to show at airport security.
  • The X-ray machine is up next. Remove anything metal on you that is likely to beep. This includes things like headphones or earphones, as well as heavy coats or jackets. They’ll need to be placed on the conveyor belt for screening.
  • For just a few minutes, you’ll have to unplug from the digital world. Your tablet, phone and any other electronic devices must also be sent through the scanner.
  • Any gels or liquids, such as shampoo or hand cream, 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.
  • It’s also possible you’ll be asked to take your shoes off for scanning, so wearing lightweight sneakers is always a good idea.
  • Airlines won’t allow any pocket knives or other sharp items to come on board with you. If you must bring these kinds of items, check them in.
