How to survive the flight to Petropolis?
Wherever you’re coming from, flying can be a pleasurable experience if you’re well organized. Follow these handy tips that will help get your Petropolis escape started on the right note.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • The trick to having an awesome travel experience is to pack in advance. So, let’s start with the basics: passport, boarding pass, cash and vital medications. Next, bring on board items that’ll help keep you occupied, like some electronic gadgets or a good read. It’s also a wise idea to pack your chargers, a neck pillow and a pair of headphones. Finally, be sure to chuck in toiletry items like a toothbrush, cleansing wipes and a fresh change of clothes.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Make sure you don’t have sharp or pointed objects hiding in your hand luggage. Other restricted items include flammable or explosive goods, such as aerosol cans and fuel, and gels and liquids in containers with a volume of more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • The best way to ensure a comfortable flight can be as simple as the clothes you wear. Prepare for changes in temperature by layering up. That way you’ll stay nice and warm if the cabin begins to cool down. Shoes like high heels and sandals are best left in your checked suitcase. Instead, opt for flat, closed-toed footwear like sneakers. Your feet will appreciate it.
  • You’ve probably heard about deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clot condition caused by long periods of sitting. There’s plenty you can do to lessen your risk. Don a pair of compression tights or socks, stay hydrated and get your legs and feet moving. Do a lap or two of the cabin or perform exercises in your seat.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Petropolis?
As savvy travelers know, the secret is to be well prepared before you get to the airport security gate. That way, you’ll be stepping onto that plane to Petropolis in the blink of an eye. Follow these helpful tips and get your vacation off to a flying start:

  • Airport security personnel first need to know that you have a valid ID and travel documents before you can proceed any further. Have them within easy reach, ready for inspection.
  • The X-ray machine is up next. Empty your pockets and remove anything that is likely to set off the scanner’s alarm. This includes things like headphones or earphones, as well as bulky coats or jackets. They’ll all need to go on the X-ray conveyor belt.
  • All your electronics, including your phone and tablet, must also be separately scanned.
  • Any liquids or gels, such as perfume or hand cream, that you want to bring on board must be no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). Also, everything must fit inside a quart-size (one liter), clear zip-lock bag.
  • Slip-on shoes are a sensible footwear choice as you’re less likely to be asked to remove them when going through security. Boots and other heavy shoes are usually subjected to additional screening.
  • Avoid taking prohibited items in your carry-on bag. If you have any sharp objects like a pocket knife or tools, put them in your checked baggage. They won’t be allowed on board.
