Air travel is a safe mode of transportation. If you are even the slightest bit worried about your airplane trip follow some of these tips to ensure that you are being careful on your flight. You can be responsible for your own safety.
Air Travel Safety Tips
First, be sure to listen to the safety briefing at the start of the flight. It is so easy to tune out, but the information that is announced is very important if an emergency does happen. So pay attention...it only lasts a couple of minutes.
Keep your seat belt fastened Another way to take safety into your own hands is keeping your seat belt fastened. Even when the fastened signs are off, it doesn't hurt to have your belt always fastened. Ensure the belt is on the correct way, snug, over the hips. It is not going to do you any good if it is on wrong.
Follow the carry-on baggage restrictions
There are a lot of items that you would think are harmless that you cannot travel with. It is a very good idea to look online what is restricted so you know that what you are packing is allowed.
Condense Your Luggage
The less pieces of luggage you have, the less you'll have to pay - and worry about. With tight airline restrictions, weight limits, and extra baggage checks, the fewer pieces you carry, the better. Check the airline's rules and regulations before packing so you're not surprised by extra fees at check-in. It may less stressful, to ship holiday gifts rather than put them in your suitcase.
Plan for Extra Time
Even if you use service, the holiday travel season is incredibly busy. Add more than half an hour to the time you need to arrive at the airport in order to accommodate any possible transportation delays.
Remember to bring your medication on board with you but in the prescription bottle. If you are travelling from a drinking spree, make sure you know how to relieve hangover. So in your travel, remember these safety tips and you'll be flying anxiety free in no time.
