How to survive the flight to Edinburgh?
Depending on where you’re coming from, your flight to Edinburgh could be a piece of cake or it could go on forever. We’ve put together some tips that will help you start your next big adventure on the right foot.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • A plane ride can be a great experience if you carry the right things. First things first, you’ll need basic toiletries, such as deodorant, toothpaste and a toothbrush, a spare change of clothes and a good book. Secondly, find a spot in your carry-on bag for your phone and charger, any medications and maybe a proper neck pillow too. Last, but definitely not least, remember to bring your passport, travel docs and some money.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • While the list of prohibited items can differ between air carriers, the general guide to follow is nothing sharp, flammable or explosive. This includes tools, metal cutlery, fuels and bleaching agents. Sporting equipment like hockey sticks, and objects that could injure passengers, such as firearms and swords, can’t come on board with you either.

What to wear on a flight:

  • Your number one priority is to feel as comfortable as you can. Layer up with loose, natural-fibre clothing and don’t forget to pack a jacket in case it gets chilly in the cabin. Opt for a pair of roomy, flat shoes as your feet may swell during the journey. Leave the high heels and heavy boots in your luggage.
  • Unfortunately, one risk of long-distance flying is developing DVT (deep vein thrombosis), a blood clot condition caused by lengthy periods of inactivity. To prevent this, make the most of every opportunity to walk around the cabin and stretch your legs. Compression socks and tights are another easy way to help reduce this risk.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Edinburgh?
As seasoned travellers know, the secret is to be prepared before you arrive at airport security. That way, you’ll be hopping onto that plane to Edinburgh in next to no time. Follow these helpful tips and get your trip off to a flying start:

  • Have your ID and boarding pass easily accessible. They’ll be the first things you’ll be asked to present to security.
  • Next up is the X-ray machine. Empty your pockets and remove anything that is likely to set off the scanner’s alarm. This includes items like earphones or headphones, as well as heavy jackets or coats. They’ll all need to go on the X-ray conveyor belt.
  • For just a few minutes, you’ll need to unplug from technology. Your phone, laptop and any other electronics also need to go through the scanner.
  • Travelling with a new cologne or perfume? No problem. As long as the volume is no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a zip-close bag, you’re allowed to bring it with you in your carry-on.
  • Choosing your footwear wisely can save you several minutes. Hiking boots are often required to be removed and X-rayed separately. Lightweight sneakers are usually not.
  • Sharp or pointed objects (like knives and scissors) are prohibited in the cabin. They’ll be seized at security, so pack them safely away in your checked baggage.
