How to survive the flight to Kunming?
No matter where you’re coming from, flying can be an enjoyable experience if you’re well organised. Follow these top travel tips that will help get your Kunming escape started on the right note.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • The secret to having a stress-free flight experience is to plan ahead. So, let’s start with the essentials: passport, travel documents, cash and daily medications. Next, take on board items that’ll help keep you entertained, like some electronic devices or a thrilling book. It’s also wise to bring your chargers, a quality neck pillow and a pair of earplugs. And of course, don’t forget to squeeze in toiletries like a toothbrush, facial wipes and a fresh set of clothes.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Check carefully that you don’t have a sharp object lurking in one of the compartments of your carry-on luggage. Other prohibited items include explosive or flammable products, such as aerosol cans and bleach, and gels and liquids in containers with a volume of more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • Comfort really should be your main priority when picking what to wear on board. Consider your footwear choice with care too, as swollen feet can be a side effect of flying. Roomy, closed-toed shoes are always a smart option.
  • Unfortunately, a risk of long-distance travel is developing DVT (deep vein thrombosis), a blood clot condition caused by prolonged periods of inactivity. To prevent this from happening, take every opportunity to wander around the cabin. Compression tights and socks are another easy way to help reduce this risk.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Kunming?
The answer is simple — be organised. We’ve compiled some top tips for a fuss-free trip through security. Watch out Kunming, here you come:

  • Airport security personnel first need to verify that you have a valid passport and matching boarding pass before you’re allowed to proceed any further. Have them in your hand, ready for inspection.
  • After that, both you and your hand luggage will be X-rayed. To make the process quick and painless, take off anything that is likely to set the alarm off. Personal belongings such as your coat, belt and earphones need to go through the machine.
  • For just a few moments, you’ll have to unplug from the digital world. Your phone, tablet and any other electronics must also go through the scanner.
  • Travelling with your favourite hand and nail cream? As long as the volume is no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a zip-close bag, you can bring it with you in your carry-on baggage.
  • It’s also likely that you’ll be asked to take your shoes off to be X-rayed, so wearing lightweight sneakers is always a good idea.
  • Take all prohibited items out of your carry-on bag. If you have any sharp or pointed objects, pack them in your checked baggage. They won’t be allowed on board.
