How to survive the flight to Modesto?
Depending on where you’re coming from, your trip to Modesto could be simple and straightforward or it could go on forever. We’ve rounded up some handy tips that will help you start your unforgettable escape on the right foot.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • A plane ride can be a comfortable experience if you pack the right gear. Firstly, you’ll need toiletry items, such as deodorant and a toothbrush, a spare set of clothes and a magazine or two. Secondly, find room in your hand luggage for your phone, tablet and chargers, any daily medications and maybe a proper neck pillow too. Last, but definitely not least, be sure to take your passport, travel documents and your bank cards.

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 nothing flammable, sharp or explosive. This includes things like box cutters, razor blades, fuels and bleaching agents. Sporting equipment like hockey sticks, and objects that could harm other people, such as guns and swords, can’t come on board with you either.

What to wear on a flight:

  • Comfort should always be the goal when choosing what to wear on your flight. Consider your footwear with care too, as swollen ankles and feet are a common occurrence. Roomy, closed-toed shoes are always a good idea.
  • Unfortunately, a risk of flying long-haul is developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clotting condition caused by prolonged inactivity. To avoid this, take every opportunity to stretch your legs and walk around the cabin. Compression tights and socks are also a great idea to help minimize this risk.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Modesto?
The answer is — be prepared. We’ve put together some helpful hints for a stress-free trip through airport security. Look out Modesto, here you come:

  • Be sure to keep your ID and boarding pass someplace easily accessible. They’ll be the first things you’ll be asked for by 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 set the alarm off. Personal belongings such as your belt, jacket and earphones need to go through the machine.
  • For just a few moments, you’ll need to unplug from the digital world. Your tablet, phone and any other electronic devices also need to go through the scanner.
  • Any gels or liquids, such as lip balm or cologne, that you want to take on board must be no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). Also, they all must fit inside a quart-size (one liter), clear zip-lock bag.
  • Lightweight sneakers are a clever footwear choice as you’re less likely to be required to remove them when going through security. Boots and other heavy shoes are usually subjected to extra screening.
  • Airlines will not allow any sharp objects in the cabin. If you must bring these kinds of items, pack them safely in your checked baggage.
