Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Pack all your full-sized bottles of shampoo and conditioner in your checked luggage. Any liquids in your carry-on bag larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) will be confiscated by authorities. Sharp objects, like your precious pocket knife, and dangerous products which are flammable or explosive, such as aerosol cans, flares and poisons, are also restricted.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The aisles of an aircraft are not the place for a fashion parade. Layer up with comfy clothing and don’t forget to bring a sweater as it can get chilly inside the cabin on long-haul flights. Flat, slightly roomy shoes are also a sensible choice.
  • You’ve probably heard about deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clot condition caused by prolonged periods of sitting. There are numerous ways to reduce your risk. Wear a good-quality pair of compression socks, drink plenty of water and move your legs and feet. Do a lap or two of the cabin or perform some stretches in your seat.
