Boarding Gate at Airport-Protocol for Boarding Your Flight

Are you going to fly for the first time or haven’t flown in years? It is all natural the jittery is getting the better of you. After all, weighing all the chips and scales, it is an excitement which is difficult to contain. Right from entering the airport to making your boarding pass to checking in, it is an arduous task even for frequent flyers.

However, collating some basic tips well in advance would definitely steer you through the process and need not be shoved by fellow passengers to the plane. Though it is not a ‘one size fits all’ kind of a rule and different airports have different norms, a basic understanding of the tenets would surely come handy.

Browse through the following simple guidelines for that hassle free and smoother flying experience:

Pack light:-

This is the beginning of your journey and what you pack in your bags would determine the course of your trip. Discard items which are too heavy or you might not require for the trip. Ascertain beforehand what all items are barred from the airport and how much is actually allowed per person. Be prepared to pay a hefty amount when the weight is beyond the permissible limit. See, you already have reasons to justify of not carrying any gifts for your distant cousins.

Checking in your luggage:-

If you have a small bag it can be towed along with you aboard the airplane. But with a large bag, it has to be checked in before you board the flight. If it is a long haul flight for you, then checking in of your extra luggage is a good idea.After you alight from your flight, just wait at the terminal to claim your bag before coming out of the airport.

Documents to carry:-

Read the airport ID section properly to check the documents required for boarding the flight. If you are flying with a lesser known carrier, call up the airlines 24 hours before about any rescheduling of the flight. Bigger airlines do not call for such proactive approach from you as they have all such formalities in place.

Arrive early at the airport:-

If you are not familiar with the directions of the airport, it is always advisable to arrive two hours prior to the scheduled time of your departure. So, consider everything, right from the traffic condition to any roads apart from the arterial ones in case of any contingency.

Checking in at the airport:-

Apart from the check-in counters with those serpentine queues, some airports also have self check-in counters for your convenience. You need to insert your ID, normally a credit card validation and pop comes out the print out of your boarding pass.

Getting through Airport security:-

Always comply with the airport security personnel like a true responsible citizen and get through the process in a jiffy. Be prompt to disclose every item including electronic gadgets like laptop, i-pad and mobiles.

Actually boarding the flight:-

Once you are through the security process walk towards the gate’s boarding area and look for departure monitors which divulge all information about your respective flight. Usually the boarding begins thirty minutes before takeoff.
