How to survive the flight to Svalbard?
We’ve pulled together all the info you need to make your flight a pleasant experience. Follow our top tips and you’ll be breezing through airport security and enjoying Svalbard in no time.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • It’s easy — first, pack in your passport, official ID, bank cards and daily medications. Next, you’ll want some entertainment to while away the time. A juicy novel and a laptop crammed with your favorite movies are some terrific options. If you plan to take a quick snooze, a comfy neck pillow and some earplugs will also come in handy. Finally, leave space for a toothbrush and some cleansing wipes so you’ll arrive feeling fresh as a daisy.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • While the list of prohibited items can differ between airlines, the general rule of thumb is nothing flammable, sharp or explosive. This includes things like knives, scissors, spray paint and flares. Sporting equipment like hockey sticks, and objects that could harm other people, such as firearms and ammunition, aren’t allowed in the cabin either.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The best way to ensure a comfortable flight is often as simple as your choice of clothing. 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. Instead, opt for flat, closed-toed footwear like sneakers. Your feet will thank you for it.
  • The condition called deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a risk on long-haul flights. It’s the result of blood clots forming due to poor circulation and inactivity. Doing regular leg and foot exercises in your seat helps to prevent this happening. Wearing a quality pair of compression socks or tights also helps reduce your risk.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Svalbard?
A little pre-planning before your flight will help make your trip to Svalbard a pleasure. Check out our handy hints for a speedy journey through security:

  • First things first. Your passport and boarding pass will need to be shown to security personnel. Have them easily accessible so you don’t hold up the line.
  • Time to strip down. Well sort of. Your belt, jacket, keys and other small items, like your earphones, will need to go on a tray through the X-ray machine. Make your life easier by removing them as your turn draws near.
  • Your electronic gadgets like laptops and phones will also have to go through the machine for inspection. Don’t worry though, you’ll be back online in no time.
  • Remember to remove liquids and gels from your hand luggage. They often need to be sent through the X-ray scanner separately. Each product should be no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit inside a quart-size (one liter), clear zip-lock bag.
  • There’s a possibility that you’ll be asked to remove your shoes to be X-rayed, so wearing lightweight sneakers is always a smart idea.
  • Airlines won’t allow any pocket knives or other sharp items in your carry-on luggage. If you must bring these kinds of items, pack them safely in your checked baggage.
