How to survive the flight to Panama City?
Depending on where you’re coming from, your trip to Panama City could be completely painless or it could drag on forever. We’ve put together some useful travel tips that will help you start your unforgettable escape on the right foot.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • Traveling on a plane can be a cruisy experience if you bring the right things. Firstly, you’ll want some toiletry items, such as deodorant, toothpaste and a toothbrush, a spare pair of socks and a magazine or two. Secondly, make room in your carry-on bag for your electronic gadgets, chargers, your important medications and perhaps a cozy neck pillow too. Lastly, and most importantly, don’t forget to bring your passport, travel docs and your bank cards.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • While the list of prohibited items differs between air carriers, the general rule to follow is nothing flammable, sharp or explosive. This includes screwdrivers, drills, aerosol cans and bleaching agents. Sports equipment like bows and arrows, and items that could harm passengers, such as swords and guns, won’t be allowed on board either.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The answer to a comfortable flight can be as simple as your clothing choices. Prepare for temperature changes by layering up. This will keep you nice and warm if the cabin begins to cool down. Shoes like high heels and sandals are best left in your suitcase. Even though they may be your favorites, go for flat, closed-toed footwear like slip-ons. Your feet will thank you for it.
  • It’s likely you’ve heard about DVT (deep vein thrombosis), a blood clot condition caused by long periods of sitting. There are plenty of ways to mitigate your risk. Wear a pair of compression socks or tights, drink lots of water and remember to 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 Panama City?
Being prepared before you arrive at the airport will make your trip to Panama City easy and painless. Read through our handy hints for a speedy journey through security:

  • Be sure to keep your boarding pass and ID within close reach. They’re the first things you’ll be asked to show at airport security.
  • Your jacket, belt, keys and other items in your pocket, like your headphones, will need to go on a tray through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process easier by removing them as it gets closer to your turn.
  • All your electronics, including your phone and laptop, must also be scanned.
  • Any gels or liquids, such as perfume or toothpaste, that you want to take on board need to be in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). Also, everything must fit inside a quart-size (one liter), zip-lock bag.
  • Lightweight sneakers are a practical footwear choice as you’re less likely to have to remove them when going through security. Hiking boots and other heavy shoes are usually subjected to extra screening.
  • Airlines will not allow any sharp items or pocket knives in your carry-on baggage. If you must bring these kinds of items, put them in your checked luggage.
