How to survive the flight to Rock Island?
We’ve pulled together all the info you need to make your journey as stress-free as possible. Follow our tips and you’ll be cruising through airport security and enjoying Rock Island before you know it.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • The secret to having a worry-free flight experience is to pack in advance. Start with the essentials: passport, travel docs, cash and important medications. Next, bring on board items that’ll help while away those hours, like your laptop or a magazine. It’s also a wise idea to bring your chargers, a neck pillow and a pair of headphones. And of course, be sure to pop in toiletries like a toothbrush, deodorant and a clean T-shirt.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • While the list of banned items differs between air carriers, the general guide to follow is avoid carrying anything sharp, flammable or explosive. This includes box cutters, razor blades, aerosol cans and flares. Sports equipment like ice skates, and items that could harm passengers, such as swords and guns, aren’t allowed in the cabin either.

What to wear on a flight:

  • Comfort really should be your main priority when choosing what to wear on board. Consider your footwear choice with care too, as swollen feet and ankles are a common occurrence. Slightly roomy, flat shoes are always a smart option.
  • 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 reduce your risk. Don a pair of compression socks, drink lots of water often and remember to keep your legs and feet moving. Walk around the cabin when possible or perform some simple exercises in your seat.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Rock Island?
The trick is to be well organized before you get to security. That way, you’ll be boarding that plane to Rock Island in next to no time. Follow these tips and get your vacation off to a great start:

  • Airport security personnel first need to know 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 belt, jacket, keys and other small items, like your headphones, will need to go on a tray through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process easier by removing them before your turn arrives.
  • All electronic gadgets, including your phone and tablet, will also need to be separately scanned.
  • Traveling with a new hand and nail cream? As long as the volume is no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a clear zip-lock bag, it’s fine to bring with you in your carry-on luggage.
  • There’s a possibility that you’ll need to take your shoes off to be X-rayed, so wearing slip-on shoes is always a smart idea.
  • Avoid taking prohibited items in your carry-on bag. If you have any sharp objects like a pocket knife or tools, pack them safely away in your checked baggage. They won’t be allowed in the cabin.
