How to survive the flight to Pella?
We’ve rounded up all the info you need to make your journey a stress-free experience. Follow our tips and tricks and you’ll be zooming through airport security and discovering Pella in no time flat.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • A plane trip can be a pleasure if you bring the right gear. First things first, you’ll need toiletry items, such as lip balm and hand cream, a clean set of clothes and a good book. Next, find a spot in your carry-on bag for your laptop, a charger, your medications and perhaps a cozy neck pillow as well. Lastly, and most importantly, don’t forget to take your passport, travel documents and some cash.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • While the list of banned items differs between airlines, the general guide to follow is avoid carrying anything flammable, sharp or explosive. This includes things like box cutters, razor blades, fuels and bleaching agents. Sporting equipment like hockey sticks, and items that could injure passengers, such as swords and guns, won’t be allowed on board either.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The best way to ensure a comfortable flight is often as simple as your choice of clothes. Prepare for changes in temperature by layering up. This will keep you nice and warm if the cabin gets chilly. Shoes like flip flops and heels 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.
  • Unfortunately, a risk of long flights is developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clotting condition caused by extended periods of inactivity. To prevent this, take every opportunity to walk around and give your legs a stretch. Compression socks and tights are another easy way to help reduce this risk.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Pella?
As seasoned travelers know, the secret is to be organized before you reach security. That way, you’ll be hopping onto that plane to Pella in the blink of an eye. Follow these tips and get your vacation off to a terrific start:

  • First things first. Your travel documents and passport will need to be presented to airport security. Have them easily accessible to avoid fumbling around for them.
  • The X-ray machine comes next. Remove anything metal on you that is likely to set off the scanner’s alarm. This includes items like earphones or headphones, as well as your coat or jacket. They’ll all need to go on the X-ray conveyor belt.
  • All electronic gadgets, including your tablet and phone, must also be scanned.
  • Don’t forget to remove liquids and gels from your hand luggage. They usually need to be sent through the X-ray separately. Each item should be no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit inside a quart-size (one liter), clear zip-lock bag.
  • Choosing your footwear wisely can save you several minutes. Boots and bulky shoes are often required to be removed and X-rayed separately. Lightweight sneakers are usually not.
  • Take all prohibited items out of your carry-on bag. If you have any sharp objects like a pocket knife or tools, pack them in your checked suitcase. They won’t be allowed in the cabin.
