Travel and Airport Safety Tips

One of the most convenient and fastest ways to travel is to travel by plane. With low cost airplane tickets especially those booked with Airlines Northwest, traveling by air has become cheaper and as such, air travel has become the transport of choice among businessmen and tourists alike.

But traveling using airports can put you under strict rules and regulations. Airport security in US territories and other countries has become stricter after the past terrorist attacks. These new security rules and improvements can prove to be more time consuming.

For a hassle free air travel anywhere in the world, it is best to follow these tips for your safe travels:

  • Be on the airport at least 2 hours before your flight for domestic and 4 hours for international. Long lines in security checks and in check-in counters can be a hassle so it is best to come early so that you will not miss your flight
  • Have your plane tickets and identification cards within reach. When traveling abroad, make sure that your passport is up to date.
  • Do not allow strangers to take your luggage or for them to help you carry your things unless the person is a certified airport personnel.
  • Place your money, tickets, phone, wallet and other things of importance close to your person. Putting them on a belt bag or a small shoulder bag can be very handy when traveling.
  • Keep your eyes on your belongings especially if you’re inside the airport’s restaurant, comfort room and even in the X-ray conveyor belt.
  • When abroad, it is better to ask the information desk, security personnel or the airline staff for directions especially if you can’t read the signs written in the local language.
  • Do not pack flammable materials like hair spray or sharp objects like pocket knife. Chances are these things will alarm airport security and they will ask you to either leave these things behind or you’ll be forced to mail these things back to your home.
  • If traveling with kids, better give them dog tags or bracelets with your contact number printed on it just in case you got separated.

Follow these tips so that you can travel safely and avoid troubles.
