How to survive the flight to Petersburg?
If you’re not prepared, traveling can be testing. But there’s no need to panic. Follow these helpful hints and enjoy a pleasant start to your vacation in Petersburg.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • First things first, pack in your passport, travel documents, credit cards and vital medications. Next, you’ll want some in-flight entertainment to while away the time. A thrilling novel and a tablet crammed with your favorite shows are some terrific options. If you plan to catch a few z’s, a neck pillow and a pair of earplugs will also come in handy. Finally, leave some space for a toothbrush and some deodorant so you’ll step off the plane feeling fresh and ready to go.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Squeeze all your full-sized bottles of shampoo and conditioner in your checked luggage. Any liquids in your carry-on suitcase larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) will be confiscated. Sharp objects, like your trusty pocket knife, and dangerous goods which are explosive or flammable, such as spray paint, flares and fuels, are also prohibited.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The narrow aisles of your aircraft are not the best place for a fashion parade. Don comfortable layers and remember to take a cardigan as it tends to get cool inside the cabin during long-haul flights. Slightly roomy, flat shoes are also a good idea.
  • The serious condition called deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a potential risk on long-haul flights. It results from blood clotting due to inactivity and poor circulation. Doing foot and leg exercises in your seat helps to prevent this from happening. Wearing a quality pair of compression tights or socks is also recommended.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Petersburg?
It’s easy — be prepared. We’ve compiled some helpful hints for a hassle-free trip through airport security. Watch out Petersburg, here you come:

  • Be sure to have your travel documents and ID within easy reach. They’re the first items you’ll be asked to show at security.
  • Time to strip down. Well sort of. Your coat, belt, keys and other items in your pocket, like coins, will be required to go through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process easier by removing them as it gets closer to your turn.
  • For just a few minutes, you’ll have to unplug from the digital world. Your tablet, phone and any other electronics must also go through the scanner.
  • Any liquids or gels, such as shampoo or hairspray, that you want to bring on board need to be in containers no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). Also, everything must fit inside a quart-size (one liter), clear zip-close bag.
  • It’s also possible you’ll be asked to remove your shoes for scanning, so wearing slip-on sneakers is always a wise idea.
  • Take all prohibited items out of your carry-on bag. If you have any sharp objects like a pocket knife or tools, pack them safely away in your checked suitcase. They won’t be allowed on board.
