How to survive the flight to Canberra?
We’ve pulled together all the info you need to make your journey as enjoyable as possible. Follow our insider tips and you’ll be zooming through airport security and having a blast in Canberra in next to no time.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • The trick to having a hassle-free travel experience is to pack in advance. So, let’s start with the basics: passport, official ID, bank cards and daily medications. Next, bring items that’ll help keep you busy, like some electronic gadgets or a magazine. It’s also wise to pack your chargers, a quality neck pillow and a pair of headphones. Finally, be sure to chuck in toiletries like a toothbrush, cleansing wipes and a fresh set of clothes.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Double-check that you don’t have sharp or pointed objects lurking in your hand luggage. Other prohibited items include explosive or flammable substances, like aerosols and matches, and liquids and gels in containers with a volume of more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • Comfort should always be your main priority when picking what to wear during your flight. Consider your footwear carefully too, as swollen ankles and feet are a common side effect of flying. Flat, slightly roomy shoes are always a smart option.
  • A serious condition known as DVT (deep vein thrombosis) is a risk on long-haul flights. It results from blood clotting due to inactivity and poor circulation. Walking around the cabin and doing regular leg and foot exercises in your seat is a great way to prevent this developing. Wearing a good pair of compression tights or socks is also recommended.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Canberra?
It’s all about being organised. We’ve pulled together some handy tips and tricks for a stress-free trip through security. Watch out Canberra, here you come:

  • Your boarding pass and passport will need to be inspected by airport security personnel. Have them close by so you don’t have to dig around for them.
  • Time to strip down. Well kind of. Your belt, coat, keys and other contents of your pockets, like coins, will need to go through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process easier by removing them before your turn.
  • For just a few minutes, you’ll have to unplug from the digital world. Your phone, tablet and any other electronic gadgets will also need to be sent through the scanner.
  • Don’t forget to remove liquids and gels from your carry-on luggage. They usually need to be sent through the X-ray scanner separately. Each item should be no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit inside a single quart-size (one litre), clear zip-lock bag.
  • Lightweight sneakers are a good footwear choice as you’re less likely to be required to remove them when passing through security. Safety boots and other heavy-style shoes are often subjected to additional screening.
  • Airlines won’t allow any sharp or pointed objects in your hand luggage. If you must bring these kinds of items, pack them in your checked baggage.
