How to survive the flight to Queenstown?
Depending on where you’re coming from, your trip to Queenstown could be a breeze or it could drag on forever. Below are some useful tips that will help you start your unforgettable escape on the right foot.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • The secret to having a pain-free flight experience is to pack ahead. Start with the essentials: passport, travel documents, cash and daily medications. Next, bring on board items that’ll help keep you busy, like your laptop or a juicy novel. It’s also wise to bring your chargers, a neck pillow and a pair of earphones. Last but not least, be sure to pop in toiletries like a toothbrush, deodorant and a spare change of clothes.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Check carefully that you don’t have a pocket knife hiding in the bottom of your hand luggage. Other restricted items include explosive or flammable substances, such as aerosol cans and fuel, and gels and liquids in containers with a capacity of more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • The best way to ensure a comfortable flight is as simple as your clothing choices. Prepare for changes in temperature by bringing layers. That way you’ll stay nice and warm if the cabin begins to cool down. Shoes like sandals 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 appreciate it.
  • You’ve probably heard about deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clotting condition caused by long periods of sitting. There are many ways to reduce your risk. Wear compression socks, drink lots of water and keep your legs and feet moving. Wander around the cabin or try out some simple stretches in your seat.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Queenstown?
As savvy travelers know, the secret is to be well prepared before you reach the airport security gate. That way, you’ll be hopping onto that plane to Queenstown in a flash. Follow these tips and get your vacation off to a terrific start:

  • Your travel documents and ID will need to be shown to security personnel. Have them easily accessible so you don’t hold up the queue.
  • Time to strip down. Well kind of. Your coat, belt, keys and other small items, like coins, will be required to go through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process easier by removing them before your turn arrives.
  • Your electronic gadgets like laptops and phones will also need to go on a tray to be scanned. Don’t worry though, you’ll be back online before you know it.
  • Traveling with your favorite perfume? No problem. As long as the volume is no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a clear zip-lock bag, it’s OK to bring with you in your carry-on bag.
  • Lightweight sneakers are a sensible footwear choice as you’re less likely to be required to remove them when passing through security. Boots and other bulky shoes are often subjected to additional screening.
  • Airlines will not allow any pocket knives or other sharp items to come on board with you. If you need to bring these kinds of items, pack them safely in your checked baggage.
