How to survive the flight to Nelson?
If you’re not prepared, air travel can be tough. But there’s no need to worry. Follow these handy tips and enjoy a hassle-free start to your time in Nelson.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • The secret to having a pain-free travel experience is to be prepared. Start with the essentials: passport, travel docs, bank cards and daily medications. Next, bring items that’ll help pass the time, like some electronic gadgets or a magazine. It’s also smart to bring your chargers, a quality neck pillow and a pair of earplugs. Finally, be sure to squeeze in toiletries like a toothbrush, deodorant and a fresh set of clothes.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Leave all your full-sized bottles of shampoo and hair gel in your checked luggage. Any liquids in your carry-on bag larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) won’t be allowed on. Pointed or sharp objects, like your precious pocket knife, and dangerous goods which are explosive or flammable, such as aerosol cans, flares and poisons, are also restricted.

What to wear on a flight:

  • Comfort should always be your prime concern when selecting what to wear on your flight. Consider your footwear carefully too, as swollen feet are quite common. Roomy, closed-toed shoes are always a smart option.
  • Most of us have heard about deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clot condition caused by long periods of sitting. There’s lots you can do to minimize your risk. Wear a pair of compression socks or tights, drink plenty of water and keep your legs and feet moving. Wander around the cabin or perform some stretches in your seat.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Nelson?
The trick is to be prepared before you reach security. That way, you’ll be hopping onto that plane to Nelson in the blink of an eye. Follow these helpful tips and get your vacation off to a flying start:

  • Security personnel first need to know that you have a valid passport and matching travel documents before anything else. Have them in your hand, ready for inspection.
  • Next up, both you and your carry-on bag must be X-rayed. To make the process quick and painless, take off anything that might trigger the alarms. Personal belongings like your coat, belt and headphones need to go through the machine.
  • For just a few minutes, you’ll need to unplug from technology. Your laptop, phone and any other electronic devices must also be sent through the scanner.
  • Don’t forget to remove liquids and gels from your carry-on bag. They usually need to be sent through the X-ray scanner separately. Each product should be no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit inside a quart-size (one liter), clear zip-close bag.
  • There’s a chance you’ll need to remove your shoes for scanning, so wearing slip-on shoes is always a clever idea.
  • Airlines will not allow any pocket knives or other sharp items in your carry-on baggage. If you must bring these kinds of items, put them in your checked baggage.
