  • First of all, pack in your passport, important documents, credit cards and medications. Next, you’ll want some extra in-flight entertainment to help pass the time.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

Any liquids or gels in your carry-on suitcase larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) will be confiscated by authorities. Sharp objects, like your precious Swiss Army knife, and dangerous products which are explosive or flammable, such as aerosols and strong acids, are also not allowed.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The narrow aisles of an airplane are no place for a fashion parade. Don comfortable layers and remember to bring a cardigan as it can get quite cool inside the cabin on long-haul flights. Closed-toed, flat shoes are also a sensible choice.
  • Caused by lengthy periods of inactivity, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a serious condition that can affect some passengers on long-haul flights. The good news is there are numerous ways to significantly reduce your risk of developing it. Drink plenty of water, wander through the cabin whenever possible and wear compression tights or socks.
