We all know how tiring and awfully infuriating longer queues or time taking processes at the airport security can get. Imagine you planned your holidays, got your flight tickets booked, reached the airport well in advance to only wait at the security for hours before you finally got cleared. Or worse, boarding gate closes in 30 minutes and you are still stuck in the security process. Well, that entire wait is extremely frustrating and that is why we got you 5 tips for faster and easier airport security.
Take Carry-On Luggage
Eliminate the stressful security process by packing light and try accommodating all essentials in a carry-on luggage and you will see how quickly you will surpass the check. Some airports offer separate queues for people with no check-in baggage, also you can check in online and save all the more time. While booking your flight tickets, ensure you check the carry-on limit and security process, just in case there are specifications.
It is very important to keep all documents handy and organized. Wear comfortable clothes and carry your documents possibly in an inside pocket of your coat or jacket so that it is readily accessible when you approach the airport TSA. Ensure to keep your passport, flight ticket, travel documents, baggage receipts, etc. together in one place.
Always plan in advance to get through the queue easily. You already know that you will need to take off your jacket, shoes, laptop, phone, etc. So get ready well in advance. Take out your laptop and phone, wear slip-on shoes, and keep your jacket already in hand to spend as little time as you can at the check.
Dress Comfortably and Be Swift
Airport dressing means comfortable dressing not just because you need to sit for hours in an air flight but also because you will need to quickly move around completing several formalities and clothing should be the last hindrance in such a case. Also, comfortable and planned clothing is easy to take off while security checks. For example, you can wear skinny jeans with a top and cardigan and take off the cardigan for checking later.
Be Smart and Read People
When choosing which security line to get into carefully glance at people in the queues and join the line that has more experienced people who have done the drill multiple times rather than join the line where new bees consume a lot of time at the process. Also, a sharp and quick TSA Agent will quickly go ahead with the checking and hence, your wait time will get shorter.
Traveling smart does not just imply on getting cheaper flight tickets but also depends on how quickly you can evade security and make it to your air flight in time. Use these tricks and it will be quick and easy!
