Airport Security Checks…
We know, most of us know…but sometimes it is good to re-share. Think about it, if all of our fellow travelers follow this then the screening process will be more pleasant for all of us. So, share it if that’s ok for you. .
It can be stressful going through security. A few easy things you can do to make it a little better:
Stay friendly. A thank you will go a long way.
Plan your buckets. Count the number of buckets you need and take exactly that many. Sometimes people in the line are annoyed if you have to put some back or need more than you originally thought.
Pay Attention to your Bag Position.
Be sure to lay any vertical bags into a horizontal position; otherwise, the screeners may send it back through and that will delay your process.
Keep Liquids Handy.
If you are carrying on your luggage and have liquids, stick the bag of liquids in the top of your purse or the carry-on itself, so that you may get to it easily to take it out.
Take Chargers Out.
If you have chargers or other electronics with wires, take them out along with computers and other large electronic devices. That will save you the hassle of additional bag checks resulting in further delays.
Real Gold Doesn’t Apply.
When you’re removing large metal belt buckles or other large metal objects, don’t worry about anything that’s real gold – it usually does not set off the alarm.
Take it to the Bench. Once your items have been screened and passed, if there’s a line, take the buckets to a bench, where you can put shoes and belts back on, without holding up the line.
Last but not least, there are ways to avoid the above all together. If you’d like to know more get in touch with us
