Learn the Dos and Don'ts of Airport Travel

Navigating the airport and getting to your gate on time can be a hassle, especially if there’s a long line at security. Whether it’s your first time flying or you’re a frequent traveler, you can benefit from brushing up on the basic dos and don’ts. For starters, do check airport parking rates ahead of time, and do take advantage of extra perks like luggage assistance.

Do stay on top of the latest regulations and restrictions.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) establishes restrictions on what you can and can’t take on an airplane. As security needs change over time, so too do these regulations. Before packing for your trip, check the TSA’s website to look up the latest security screening guidelines. This is especially important if you need to take medications or medical supplies with you, or if you plan to carry food or liquids on board. Electronics can also be subject to restrictions. If you have a questionable item that isn’t listed on the website, use the AskTSA feature on social media to check directly with an agent.

Don’t leave for the airport at the last minute.

Even if you do take advantage of an airport parking company’s valet service or shuttle service, you should always give yourself more time to get to your gate than you think you’ll need. Expect long delays at the security checkpoint and baggage check, even if you’re traveling during an “off” time.

Do behave courteously toward your fellow travelers.

Travelers who are new to flying can inadvertently commit faux pas that annoy their fellow travelers. Do remember that sound carries easily in a plane, and use a quiet voice to converse. Odors will also linger in a plane, and may even make other passengers feel ill. Avoid wearing perfume or body spray, and avoid packing food with strong odors.
