How to survive the flight to Edinburgh?
If you’re poorly prepared, air travel can be daunting. But don’t hit the panic button just yet. Follow these useful tips for a comfortable start to your getaway in Edinburgh.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • Flying can be a comfortable experience if you carry the right stuff. Firstly, you’ll want some toiletry items, such as a toothbrush and hairbrush, a fresh set of clothes and a good book. Next, leave space in your hand luggage for your phone and charger, any medications and maybe a proper neck pillow too. Last, but definitely not least, be sure to bring your passport, travel documents and some cash.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Double-check that you don’t have a sharp object hiding in one of the zippers of your hand luggage. Other banned items include flammable or explosive products, such as aerosol cans and fuel, and liquids and gels in containers larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • The best way to ensure a comfortable flight is as simple as the clothes you wear. Prepare for changes in temperature by bringing layers. This will keep you nice and warm if the cabin starts to cool down. Shoes like flip flops and heels are best left in your suitcase. Instead, opt for flat, closed-toed footwear like sneakers. Your feet will thank you later.
  • A condition called deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a potential risk on long-haul flights. It results from blood clotting due to poor circulation and inactivity. Walking up and down the aisle and doing foot and leg exercises while seated is a great way to prevent this from happening. Wearing a high-quality pair of compression tights or socks also helps reduce the risk.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Edinburgh?
Being organised before you get to the airport will help make your trip to Edinburgh easy and painless. Check out our useful tips for a speedy journey through security:

  • Security personnel first need to see that you have a valid passport and matching travel documents before you’re allowed to proceed any further. Keep them within easy reach.
  • After that, both you and your hand luggage must be X-rayed. To speed things up, take off anything that might set the alarms off. Items such as your coat, belt and earphones will be required to go through the machine.
  • All electronic gadgets, including your laptop and phone, will also need to be scanned.
  • Can’t travel without your favourite hand cream? Not a problem. As long as it’s in a container no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a clear zip-lock bag, you can keep it with you in your carry-on luggage.
  • The right choice of footwear can save you several minutes. Boots and heavy shoes are often required to be removed and X-rayed separately. Slip-on shoes usually aren’t.
  • Take all prohibited items out of your carry-on bag. If you have any sharp objects like a pocket knife or tools, pack them safely away in your checked baggage. They won’t be allowed in the cabin.
