How to survive the flight to Kuala Lumpur?
Depending on where you’re coming from, your journey to Kuala Lumpur could be completely stress-free or it could go on forever. We’ve compiled some handy travel tips that will help you start your next great adventure on the right foot.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • First things first, pack in your passport, official ID, wallet and vital medications. Next, you’ll need some in-flight entertainment to while away the time. A juicy novel and a phone filled with your favourite movies are always good options. If you intend to catch more than just forty winks, a quality neck pillow and some earplugs will also be useful. Finally, leave some space for a toothbrush and some deodorant to ensure you hop off the plane feeling fresh and ready to go.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Pack all your full-sized bottles of shampoo and hairspray in your checked baggage. Any liquids or gels in your carry-on suitcase larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) won’t be allowed on. Sharp objects, like a pocket knife, and products which are explosive or flammable, such as aerosol cans, spray paint and gasoline, are also prohibited.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The best way to ensure a comfortable flight is as simple as your clothing choices. Prepare yourself for varying temperatures by layering up. This will keep you nice and warm if the cabin begins to cool down. Shoes like stilettos, flip flops and lace-up boots are best left in your checked suitcase. Instead, go for flat, closed-toed footwear like slip-ons. Your feet will appreciate it.
  • Most travellers have heard about DVT (deep vein thrombosis), a blood clotting condition caused by long periods of sitting. There’s lots you can do to lower your risk. Wear a good-quality pair of compression socks, drink plenty of water and move your legs and feet. Wander around the cabin or try out some exercises in your seat.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Kuala Lumpur?
The trick is to be prepared before you arrive at the airport security gate. That way, you’ll be stepping onto that plane to Kuala Lumpur before you know it. Follow these tips and get your holiday off to a terrific start:

  • Keep your ID and travel documents within easy reach. They’re the first things you’ll be asked to show at airport security.
  • After that, both you and your hand luggage must be X-rayed. To speed things up, take off anything that is likely to trigger the alarm. Items like your belt, jacket and earphones will be required to go through the machine.
  • For just a few moments, you’ll have to unplug from the digital world. Your tablet, phone and any other electronics must also be sent through the scanner.
  • Remember to remove gels and liquids from your hand luggage. They often need to be sent through the X-ray machine separately. Each item should be no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit in a quart-size (one litre), clear zip-lock bag.
  • There’s a good chance you’ll be asked to remove your shoes for scanning, so wearing lightweight sneakers is always a clever idea.
  • Sharp items such as knives and scissors are not allowed on board. They’ll be seized at security, so pack them safely away in your checked luggage.
