If you are recently travelling in flight then you should be very careful because there are many important things that you should keep in mind before you board your flight. The first and foremost thing you should not forget is to carry your ticket with yourself and your passport. This is because since the tradition of hard copy of flight ticket has almost vanished, all the tickets now days are e-ticket generated online. To ensure your identification, your passport is required so don’t forget to carry it with you. However it is not necessary to carry a print out of the e- ticket, a soft copy of it in your laptop or in your mobile phone will also do.
Before you enter the airport, you should be well informed about the rules and regulations of the particular flight carrier. There are some general norms for travelling in flight, but certain rules also vary from one flight carrier to another. The main thing you should prior to your flight travel is the hand baggage allowance. Certain flight carriers allow only a particular size of bag on board in the cabin. While some carrier don’t consider your laptop bag as a hand baggage, few flight carriers consider laptop bag as a hand baggage and in that case you are not allowed to carry any other bags on board.
Carrying liquids, aerosols, gels, perfumes, lip sticks, eye liners, etc are strictly prohibited in the flights. If you ever carry these things, then they will be seized during security check. Also carrying sharp objects like blades, Swiss army knives, nail cutter, etc are not allowed on board. The check in baggage allowance is different in different carriers and also the charges for the extra baggage. So, you should pack your baggage accordingly so that you don’t have to burn a hole in your pocket during check in.
