First Time Flying? Here are Some Tips to Keep You Sane
Are you planning on flying for the first time? If so, you may be feeling a little bit anxious. It’s normal to feel nervous before your first flight – after all, it is a big step! MRO aviation is here to help!
Research your airport & airline: Before you book a ticket, make sure to research the airport and airline that you’ll be flying with. Check out their websites and read reviews online so that you know what type of experience to expect. It’s also good to familiarize yourself with the layout of the airport and any important information regarding security procedures, etc.
Pack light: Especially when it comes to luggage, packing light is key! Make sure all your bags are within the weight limit for your airline as extra fees will apply for overweight bags at check-in. Only bring items that are essential for your flight, such as medication or snacks. Leave behind anything unnecessary in order to avoid having to pay additional charges or carrying extra luggage.
Arrive early: It’s important to arrive at the airport ahead of time so that you can check-in and go through security without any issues. Check your ticket for specific timing guidelines, as airlines may have different policies. Aim to arrive at least two hours before departure for domestic flights and three hours for international flights.
Bring entertainment: Waiting around in airports can be boring, so make sure to bring along something to pass the time – such as a book, music player or tablet device loaded with games or movies. This will help keep your mind occupied while waiting to board your flight.
Request special assistance: If you need any type of special assistance during your flight (such as a wheelchair or assistance getting to your seat), make sure to contact the airline ahead of time so that they can make necessary arrangements.
With these tips, you’re now ready for your first flight! Just remember to relax, stay organized and be mindful of any applicable rules. Have a safe journey!
