How to survive the flight to Mexico City?
Depending on where you’re coming from, your journey to Mexico City could be completely painless or it could go on forever. We’ve pulled together some handy travel tips that will help you start your unforgettable escape on a positive note.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • Flying can be a stress-free experience if you carry the right things. First things first, you’ll need toiletry items, such as a toothbrush and hairbrush, a spare change of clothes and a good novel. Next, make room in your carry-on bag for your electronic gadgets, chargers, any medications and perhaps a comfy neck pillow as well. Lastly, remember to bring your passport, travel papers and your credit cards.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Squeeze all your full-sized bottles of hair gel and hairspray in your checked luggage. Any liquids or gels in your carry-on suitcase larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) will be confiscated by security. Sharp objects, like your precious Swiss Army knife, and dangerous products which are flammable or explosive, such as aerosols and fuels, are also not allowed.

What to wear on a flight:

  • Your number one priority is to make yourself as comfortable as you can. Don layers of natural fibers and take a pullover in case you get cold. Pick well-fitting, flat shoes as it’s possible that your feet and ankles will swell a little during the flight. Leave the high heels and chunky boots in your checked luggage.
  • A condition known as DVT (deep vein thrombosis) can pose a risk on long-haul flights. It’s the result of 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 developing. Wearing a good-quality pair of compression tights or socks also helps reduce your risk.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Mexico City?
Being organized before your flight can make your getaway to Mexico City a pleasure. Below are some handy tips for a swift journey through security:

  • Keep your travel documents and ID close by. They’ll be the first things you’ll be asked to present to airport security.
  • Time to strip down. Well sort of. Your jacket, belt, keys and other items in your pocket, like coins, will be required to go through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process easier by removing them before your turn.
  • Your electronic devices like laptops and phones will also have to go on a tray to be scanned. No need to worry though, you’ll be back online soon enough.
  • Any liquids or gels, such as toothpaste or perfume, that you want to bring on board must be no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). They must also all fit inside a quart-size (one liter), clear zip-close bag.
  • It’s also possible you’ll be required to take your shoes off for scanning, so wearing slip-on sneakers is always a smart idea.
  • 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 baggage. They won’t be allowed in the cabin.
