How to survive the flight to Nice?
Depending on where you’re coming from, your journey to Nice could be completely painless or it could drag on forever. We’ve rounded up some useful hints that will help you start your next unforgettable escape on a positive note.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • Travelling on a plane can be a great experience if you’ve got all the right gear. Firstly, you’ll need basic toiletry items, such as deodorant and a toothbrush, a clean pair of socks and a good novel. Next, make room in your carry-on bag for your mobile phone, a charger, your important medications and maybe a proper neck pillow too. Lastly, be sure to bring your passport, travel documents and some cash.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Double-check that you don’t have a Swiss Army knife hiding in your hand luggage. Other banned items include flammable or explosive substances, such as bleach and fuel, and gels and liquids in containers larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • Your aim here is to be as comfortable as you can. Dress in loose, breathable clothing and bring a pullover just in case you get cold. Opt for well-fitting, flat shoes as it’s possible that your feet and ankles will swell a little during the journey. Leave the stilettos and heavy hiking boots in your luggage.
  • You’ve probably heard about DVT (deep vein thrombosis), a blood clot condition caused by long periods of sitting. There’s lots you can do to mitigate your risk. Don a pair of compression socks, stay well hydrated and keep your legs and feet moving. Wander up and down the aisles of the cabin or perform some stretches in your seat.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Nice?
The trick is to be prepared before you reach security. That way, you’ll be boarding that plane to Nice before you know it. Follow these helpful tips and get your holiday off to a great start:

  • Be sure to keep your travel documents and ID someplace easily accessible. They’re the first things you’ll be asked for by airport security.
  • Next up, both you and your carry-on luggage will be X-rayed. To make the process quick and painless, take off anything that might set the alarms off. Personal belongings like your belt, jacket and earphones need 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 electronics will need to go through the scanner.
  • Travelling with your favourite hand and nail cream? Not a problem. As long as it’s in a container no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a zip-close bag, you can keep it with you in your carry-on baggage.
  • Slip-on shoes are a clever footwear choice as you’re less likely to be required to remove them when passing through security. Hiking boots and other heavy-style shoes are often subjected to additional screening.
  • Avoid taking prohibited items in your carry-on bag. If you have any sharp objects like a pocket knife or tools, put them in your checked suitcase. They won’t be allowed on board.
