  • A plane trip can be easy if you’ve got all the right things. Firstly, you’ll need toiletry items, such as deodorant and a toothbrush, a spare set of clothes and a few magazines. Secondly, make room in your carry-on bag for your mobile phone, a charger, any daily medications and perhaps a comfy neck pillow too. Lastly, don’t forget to bring your passport, travel documents and some cash.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • While the list of restricted items differs between air carriers, the general rule to follow is nothing flammable, sharp or explosive. This includes screwdrivers, blades, spray paint and fireworks. Sporting equipment like ice skates, and items that could injure passengers, such as firearms and ammunition, are also banned from the cabin.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The narrow aisles of an aircraft are no place for a fashion parade. Layer yourself up with comfortable clothes and take a sweater as the temperature can drop in the cabin on long-haul flights. Enclosed, flat shoes are always a good choice too.
  • Most travelers are aware of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clot condition caused by long periods of inactivity. There are many ways to reduce your risk. Wear compression tights or socks, drink plenty of water and move your legs and feet. Walk the aisles of the cabin or perform exercises in your seat.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Rarotonga?
It’s simple — be prepared. We’ve rounded up some useful tips for a hassle-free trip through security. Look out Rarotonga, here you come:

  • Security personnel first need to check that you have a valid passport and travel documents before you’re allowed to proceed any further. Keep them close by.
  • Time to strip down. Well kind of. Your coat, belt, keys and other items in your pocket, like coins, will need to go on a tray through the X-ray machine. Make your life easier by removing them as your turn draws near.
  • All your electronic gadgets, including your laptop and phone, must also be separately scanned.
  • Don’t forget to remove gels and liquids from your hand luggage. They often need to be sent through the X-ray scanner separately. Each item should be in a container no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit in a quart-size (one liter), clear zip-lock bag.
  • Lightweight sneakers are a good footwear choice as you’re less likely to be required to remove them when going through security. Big boots and other bulky shoes are usually subjected to additional screening.
  • Airlines will not allow any sharp items or pocket knives in your hand luggage. If you must bring these kinds of items, pack them in your checked luggage.
