How to survive the flight to Universal City?
No matter where you’re coming from, flying can be a pleasurable experience if you’ve prepared well. Check out these handy tips and tricks that will help get your Universal City vacation started on the right note.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • A plane ride can be a cruisy experience if you carry the right stuff. First things first, you’ll need basic toiletries, such as deodorant, toothpaste and a toothbrush, a spare pair of socks and a good book. Next, find a spot in your bag for your phone and charger, any medications and perhaps a comfy neck pillow too. Lastly, remember to take your passport, travel documents and some cash.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Pack all your full-sized bottles of shampoo and conditioner in your checked baggage. Any liquids or gels in your carry-on suitcase larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) won’t be allowed on. Pointed or sharp objects, like your precious pocket knife, and products which are flammable or explosive, such as flares, chemicals agents and strong acids, are also prohibited.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The long, narrow aisles of your aircraft are not the best place for a fashion parade. Layer up with comfy clothing and don’t forget to bring a cardigan as it can get quite cool in the cabin during long-haul flights. Slightly roomy, flat shoes are also a wise idea.
  • Unfortunately, a risk of long-distance travel is developing DVT (deep vein thrombosis), a blood clotting condition caused by extended periods of inactivity. To prevent this, take every opportunity to walk around the cabin and stretch your legs. Compression socks and tights are another easy way to help reduce this risk.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Universal City?
It’s all about being prepared. We’ve pulled together some handy tips and tricks for a stress-free trip through security. Look out Universal City, here you come:

  • Security personnel first need to establish that you have a valid passport and boarding pass before you can proceed any further. Have them ready for inspection.
  • After that, both you and your carry-on bag must be X-rayed. To make the process quick and painless, remove anything that might set the alarms off. Personal belongings like your jacket, belt and earphones need to go through the machine.
  • For just a few minutes, you’ll have to unplug from the digital world. Your phone, laptop and any other electronic devices will also need to be sent through the scanner.
  • Remember to remove gels and liquids from your carry-on luggage. They often need to be sent through the X-ray 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-close bag.
  • Slip-on shoes are a clever footwear choice as you’re less likely to be required to remove them when passing through security. Boots and other heavy shoes are usually subjected to additional screening.
  • Avoid taking prohibited items in your carry-on bag. If you have any sharp or pointed objects, put them in your checked suitcase. They won’t be allowed in the cabin.
