How to survive the flight to San Jose?
Depending on where you’re coming from, your trip to San Jose could be a breeze or it could go on forever. We’ve rounded up some handy tips that will help you start your next great escape on the right foot.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • Traveling on a plane can be a cruisy experience if you pack the right things. First of all you’ll need basic toiletries, such as toothpaste, a toothbrush and some deodorant, a fresh set of clothes and a good novel. Next, find a spot in your bag for your electronic gadgets, chargers, your medications and perhaps a blow-up neck pillow too. Last, but definitely not least, be sure to take your passport, travel docs and your credit cards.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Check carefully that you don’t have sharp objects (like a knife or scissors) hiding in your carry-on luggage. Other prohibited items include flammable or explosive substances, like aerosols and matches, and gels and liquids in containers larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • The best way to ensure a comfortable flight is as simple as the clothes you wear. Prepare for temperature changes by bringing layers. That way you’ll stay nice and warm if the cabin starts to cool down. Shoes like stilettos, flip flops and lace-up boots are best left in your checked suitcase. Even though they may be your favorites, go for flat, closed-toed footwear like slip-ons. Your feet will thank you for it.
  • Caused by sustained periods of immobility, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot condition that can affect some passengers during long-haul flights. The great news is there are ways to reduce your risk of developing it. Stay hydrated, get up and walk around the cabin as much as possible and wear compression socks or tights.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to San Jose?
A little pre-planning before you arrive at the airport will help make your getaway to San Jose a pleasure. Below you’ll find some useful tips and tricks for a speedy journey past security:

  • Security personnel first need to make sure that you have a valid passport and matching boarding pass before anything else. Keep them within easy reach.
  • After that, both you and your carry-on luggage will be X-rayed. To make the process quick and painless, remove anything that is likely to trigger the alarm. Items like your coat, belt and headphones will be required to go through the machine.
  • For just a few moments, you’ll need to unplug from the digital world. Your phone, laptop and any other electronic devices will also need to go through the scanner.
  • Remember to remove gels and liquids from your carry-on luggage. They usually need to be sent through the X-ray separately. Each item should be no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit inside a single quart-size (one liter), clear zip-lock bag.
  • Lightweight sneakers are a clever footwear choice as you’re less likely to be required to remove them when passing through security. Hiking boots and other bulky shoes are often subjected to additional screening.
  • Sharp or pointed objects (like knives and scissors) are not allowed on board. They’ll be confiscated at security, so pack them in your checked suitcase.
