  • Keep your travel ID and boarding pass somewhere handy. They'll be the first things you'll be instructed to produce by security staff.
  • Coins, belts and wrist watches must be placed in a tub for X-raying. If you pass through the body scanner with any of these items, you'll be instructed to turn back and remove them.
  • Make sure your electronic devices and laptop are easy to reach. These items need to be put through the X-ray machine in separate tubs.
  • When it comes to flying with liquids and gels, all passengers are allowed a quart-sized clear zip-lock bag to transport containers no bigger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
  • Airport security staff may ask you to take off your shoes for the body scanner. Choose a pair that you can take off easily. There's nothing more irritating than having to do up your laces again and again.
  • The list of prohibited items is forever changing. Browse your carrier's website to learn about what is not allowed on board their flights.
