We’ve pulled together all the info you need to make your journey a stress-free experience. Follow our tips and you’ll be cruising through airport security and having a ball in Norwich in no time flat.What to pack in your hand luggage:
- It’s easy — first, pack your passport, travel docs, wallet and medications. Next, you’ll need some in-flight entertainment to while away the time. A juicy novel and a tablet crammed with your favorite movies are always good options. If you hope to catch up on some sleep, a comfy neck pillow and a pair of noise-canceling headphones will also be useful. Finally, find room for a few toiletry items to ensure you step off the plane looking fresh and raring to go.
Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:
- Make sure you don’t have a pocket knife lurking in one of the compartments of your hand luggage. Other restricted items include flammable or explosive goods, such as bleach and fuel, and liquids and gels in containers with a capacity of more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
What to wear on a flight:
- Comfort should be your main priority when selecting what to wear on board. Consider your footwear with care too, as swollen feet can be a side effect of flying. Slightly roomy, flat shoes are always a good idea.
- The condition by the name of DVT (deep vein thrombosis) is a risk on long-haul flights. It’s the result of blood clots forming due to poor circulation. Walking up and down the aisle and doing foot and leg exercises in your seat helps to prevent this developing. Wearing a good-quality pair of compression socks is also recommended.
