How to survive the flight to Chengdu?
Depending on where you’re coming from, your flight to Chengdu could be as easy as pie or it could drag on forever. Here are some handy tips that will help you start your unforgettable escape on the right foot.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • A plane ride can be easy if you bring the right stuff. Firstly, you’ll need basic toiletry items, such as a toothbrush and lip balm, a fresh set of clothes and a good book. Next, find room in your bag for your mobile phone, a charger, medications and maybe a comfy neck pillow too. Last, but definitely not least, don’t forget to take your passport, travel documents and some money.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Pack all your full-sized bottles of shampoo and hairspray in your checked luggage. Any liquids in your carry-on suitcase larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) will be confiscated. Sharp or pointed objects, like your treasured pocket knife, and products which are explosive or flammable, such as aerosol cans, flares and matches, are also not allowed.

What to wear on a flight:

  • Comfort should always be your priority when picking what to wear on board. Consider your footwear carefully too, as swollen feet are a common side effect of flying. Roomy, closed-toed shoes are always a smart option.
  • The result of sustained periods of immobility, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a condition that can affect some passengers during long flights. The good news is there are numerous ways to reduce the risk of developing it. Drink plenty of water, walk up and down the aisles as often as you can and wear compression tights or socks.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Chengdu?
As seasoned travellers know, the secret is to be organised before you reach the security gate. That way, you’ll be hopping onto that plane to Chengdu in no time at all. Follow these helpful tips and get your holiday off to a great start:

  • Security personnel first need to see that you have a valid ID and matching boarding pass before you’re allowed to proceed any further. Have them within easy reach, ready for inspection.
  • The X-ray machine is up next. Empty your pockets and remove anything metal that is likely to set off the scanner’s alarm. This includes items like earphones or headphones, as well as bulky coats or jackets. They’ll all need to go on the X-ray conveyor belt.
  • All your electronic gadgets, including your laptop and phone, will also need to be scanned.
  • Remove liquids and gels from your carry-on bag. They usually need to be sent through the X-ray machine separately. Each item should be in a container no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit inside a quart-size (one litre), clear zip-close bag.
  • It’s also possible you’ll be asked to remove your shoes for scanning, so wearing lightweight sneakers is always a good idea.
  • Sharp items are prohibited in the cabin. They’ll be seized at security, so pack them safely away in your checked luggage.
