How to survive the flight to Raleigh?
Depending on where you’re coming from, your flight to Raleigh could be simple and straightforward or it could go on forever. We’ve rounded up some handy tips that will help you start your next big adventure on a positive note.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • Flying can be a great experience if you take the right stuff. Firstly, you’ll want a few toiletry items, such as deodorant and a toothbrush, a spare change of clothes and a good novel. Secondly, find room in your carry-on bag for your laptop, a charger, any vital medications and maybe a comfy neck pillow as well. Last, but definitely not least, be sure to bring your passport, travel documents and some cash.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Double-check that you don’t have a sharp object lurking in the bottom of your carry-on luggage. Other prohibited items include explosive or flammable products, like aerosols and matches, and gels and liquids in containers with a volume of more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • The key to a comfortable flight is as simple as your choice of clothing. Prepare for changes in temperature by bringing layers. This will keep you nice and warm if the cabin gets chilly. Shoes like flip flops and heels are best left for other occasions. Even though they may be your favorites, go for flat, closed-toed footwear like slip-ons. Your feet will appreciate it.
  • Most travelers are aware of DVT (deep vein thrombosis), a blood clotting condition caused by long periods of sitting. There are many ways to minimize your risk. Wear compression tights or socks, stay well hydrated and get your legs and feet moving. Do a few laps of the cabin or perform exercises in your seat.

The answer is simple — be prepared. We’ve rounded up some handy tips and tricks for a fuss-free trip through airport security. Watch out Raleigh, here you come:

  • Your boarding pass and travel ID will need to be inspected by airport security personnel. Keep them someplace accessible to avoid fumbling around for them.
  • After that, both you and your carry-on bag will be X-rayed. To make the process quick and painless, take off anything that is likely to trigger the alarm. Personal belongings like your belt, coat and headphones will be required to go through the machine.
  • All your electronics, including your phone and tablet, are also required to be scanned separately.
  • Any liquids or gels, such as perfume or toothpaste, that you want to bring on board need to be in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). They must also all fit inside a quart-size (one liter), clear zip-lock bag.
  • Choosing your footwear wisely can save you several precious minutes. Boots and bulky shoes are often required to be removed and separately scanned. Slip-on shoes usually aren’t.
