To ensure that your meetings with airports are always just pleasant, we have gathered for you a selection of useful tips — small tricks from professional travelers who will make air travel much more comfortable.

So, 11 useful tips for air passengers:

  1. Fly at night. Night flights are often much more convenient and more profitable than day trips, as they are not so heavily loaded as day flights, plus the price of tickets for them is usually lower than for flights during peak hours.
  2. Go left. Since most people are right-handed, the right-most turn is more popular than the one on the left — the person instinctively turns towards the "leading" hand, so take for yourself the rule of navigating in such situations to the left side.
  3. Choose automation. To pass the accelerated preflight search and save a lot of time will help automated self-service kiosks Global Entry — you do not have to stand in lines, waste your time and nerves.
  4. Stock up on delicious. Do you want to bring alcohol on the plane? If you follow the rules, then everything is possible! If the volume of alcoholic beverages (or any other) does not exceed 100 ml, they are contained in a tightly closed container, which, in turn, is placed in a 20x20cm bag with a fastener, you can easily carry it with you to the salon.
  5. Catch stocks. It's hard to believe, but there are people who are embarrassed to learn about promotions and discounts! Be interested in airline stocks, choose air tickets with discounts and you will be able to save a decent amount of money on the flight. It's very simple!
  6. Choose parking. If you leave your car while traveling near the airport, compare parking prices — it often happens that leaving a car in a parking lot near the airport is cheaper than at nearby paid parking lots.
  7. Take photo reminders. Another tip in the continuation of the theme of cars and parking: if you take a picture of the parking lot number, when you park the car, you will spend much less time searching for a car after returning from vacation.
  8. We struggle with turbulence. If you are afraid of getting into turbulence, choose flights in the morning — at such a time, the reasons causing this unpleasant phenomenon are much less.
  9. Extreme insulation. If you have an unforeseen overload of baggage for a small weight, you can pull out the largest and heaviest clothes and put on. Yes, the way, of course, sometimes is not very convenient, but if you do not want to pay the odds, you must agree, you can throw a jacket.
  10. Relax from the child. Traveling with a child? Remember that most of the world's airports are equipped with special recreational areas for families with children, where parents can relax a bit, have a bite and clean up while their babies are supervised playing in the children's playroom. Sometimes parents need a little for happiness, right?
  11. Think about water. Every traveler knows firsthand about the sky-high prices at airport cafes, but if you do not want to overpay for ordinary drinking water, take an empty plastic bottle with you. For example, it is convenient to carry a usual sports bottle with you, and if necessary at the airport it can always be filled with drinking water for free.
