  • A plane ride can be easy if you bring the right gear. First things first, you’ll need basic toiletry items, such as deodorant and a toothbrush, a clean set of clothes and something to read. Next, find a spot in your bag for your electronic devices, chargers, your important medications and perhaps a blow-up neck pillow as well. Lastly, and most importantly, be sure to take your passport, travel docs and some money.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • While the list of restricted items can differ between airlines, the general rule to follow is avoid carrying anything flammable, sharp or explosive. This includes things like box cutters, razor blades, aerosol cans and bleaching agents. Sporting equipment like golf clubs, and items that could injure passengers, such as swords and guns, won’t be allowed on board either.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The answer to a comfortable flight is as simple as your choice of clothes. Prepare for temperature changes by layering up. This will keep you nice and warm if the cabin gets chilly. Shoes like sandals and heels are best left in your checked suitcase. Instead, opt for flat, closed-toed footwear like slip-ons. Your feet will thank you later.
  • Most travellers are aware of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clot condition caused by reduced mobility or inactivity. There are numerous ways to mitigate your risk. Wear a quality pair of compression socks or tights, drink lots of water often and keep your legs and feet moving. Do a lap or two of the cabin or perform some simple exercises in your seat.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Sigiriya?
The simple answer is — be prepared. We’ve compiled some useful tips for a speedy trip through airport security. Watch out Sigiriya, here you come:

  • First things first. Your travel ID and boarding pass will need to be shown to security personnel. Keep them someplace accessible so you don’t hold up the queue.
  • After that, both you and your carry-on luggage will be X-rayed. To speed things up, remove anything that is likely to set the alarm off. Personal belongings such as your belt, jacket and headphones need to go through the machine.
  • All your electronics, including your laptop and phone, must also be scanned separately.
  • Remove gels and liquids from your carry-on bag. They often need to be sent through the X-ray scanner separately. Each item should be in a container no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit in a quart-size (one litre), clear zip-close bag.
  • The right choice of footwear can save you a few precious minutes. Boots and heavy shoes are often required to be removed and X-rayed separately. Slip-on shoes are usually not.
  • Airlines will not allow any sharp or pointed objects to come on board with you. If you need to bring these kinds of items, put them in your checked baggage.
