  • Electronic items such as tablets, laptops and phones are always put through the X-ray machine separately. Make sure they're within easy reach.
  • When it comes to flying with liquids or gels, all passengers are allowed a quart-sized clear resealable bag to transport containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
  • Consider the type of footwear you want to fly in. Slippers are great because they're easy to take off for the airport security checks. Try wearing some on your next flight!
  • The list of non-permissible items is forever changing. Have a look at your carrier's official website to understand what is not allowed on board their aircraft.
