How to survive the flight to Washington?
If you’re poorly prepared, air travel can be tough. But there’s no need to worry. Follow these handy tips and enjoy a stress-free start to your getaway in Washington.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • Travelling on a plane can be a cruisy experience if you pack the right things. Firstly, you’ll want a few basic toiletry items, such as toothpaste, a toothbrush and some deodorant, a clean pair of socks and a few magazines. Next, find room in your bag for your laptop, a charger, any daily medications and maybe a blow-up neck pillow too. Lastly, remember to bring your passport, travel papers and some money.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Double-check that you don’t have a sharp object lurking in the bottom of your hand luggage. Other prohibited items include flammable or explosive goods, like aerosols and matches, and liquids and gels in containers larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • Your goal here is to make yourself as comfortable as you can. Dress in loose, natural fibers and remember to pack a sweater just in case you get chilly. Pick a pair of flat, slightly roomy shoes as it’s possible that your feet and ankles will swell a little during the flight. Leave the stilettos and hiking boots in your luggage.
  • The result of sustained periods of immobility, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clotting condition that can affect some passengers on long-haul flights. The good news is there are ways to lower your risk of developing it. Stay hydrated, wander through the cabin as much as you can and wear compression tights or socks.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Washington?
It’s simple — be prepared. We’ve rounded up some top tips for a fuss-free trip through airport security. Watch out Washington, here you come:

  • First things first. Your boarding pass and travel ID will need to be inspected by airport security personnel. Keep them someplace accessible to avoid fumbling around for them.
  • Your belt, jacket, keys and other contents of your pockets, like coins, will need to go through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process easier by removing them before your turn.
  • For just a few moments, you’ll need to unplug from the digital world. Your phone, laptop and any other electronic devices will need to go through the scanner.
  • Don’t forget to remove gels and liquids from your carry-on luggage. They usually need to be sent through the X-ray machine separately. Each product should be in a container no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit in a single quart-size (one litre), clear zip-close bag.
  • Slip-on shoes are a clever footwear choice as you’re less likely to have to remove them when passing through security. Safety boots and other heavy shoes are often subjected to extra screening.
  • Airlines won’t allow any sharp objects in the cabin. If you need to bring these kinds of items, put them in your checked baggage.
