Cebu Pacific shares 10 tips travelers should never forget at the airport

by | Lifestyle

Filipinos who love to travel frequent airports the most. And even for those who travel only once in a blue moon, these airport tips provided by Cebu Pacific would you out to maximize your time while you’re on the airport.

1. Arrive early at the airport

It’s advised that you arrive at least 3-4 hours before your flight to allow yourself some time to go through the check in queue, the immigration as well as other airport procedures.

2. Make sure you have all your travel documents with you

Prepare an envelope that would fit one of your bags that you will carry with you to the plane which would contain all necessary travel documents so you’re all organized.

3. Always check airport security guidelines to avoid hassle

Browse online about the security guidelines you’re about to face so you know about the proper decorum as well as the items which are forbidden to bring on your hand carry.

4. You can have your luggage wrapped for extra security

If you’re wary that some of your items might be lost along the way through the course of your journey, there are several stations that can have your luggage wrapped tightly and securely.

5. Check in online and print your boarding pass for easier transit

Skip the long queues at the check in and line up at the designated online check in counter to save time on the airport.

6. Make sure your devices are fully charged, especially for long flights

Flights to the Philippines usually last for 8-9 hours, so be sure that all of your gadgets will be on full battery. It also helps if you have a power bank just in case.

7. Don’t hesitate to ask for assistance from the cabin crew

When you’re unsure what to do inside the plane, approach the cabin crew to be guided accordingly. Remember to ask with courtesy and respect as while the crew might be of service to you, they’re also human beings like yourself.

8. Pre-order meals so you don’t get hungry throughout long flights

Cebu Pacific provides an option for their passengers to pre-order their meals which will be ideal during long flights towards destinations such as the Philippines.

9. When travelling with kids, bring small toys or snacks to keep them entertained

As lovely as children might be, they’re quite a rowdy bunch when in unfamiliar places, especially for extended periods of time – so be sure to bring something that would keep them at bay to avoid them from having any tantrums.

10 Always remember to have fun and enjoy the rest of your journey!

The experience of travelling is always a pleasure especially since you get to get yourself away from work and into places you might have never been to before. So be sure to relish and enjoy each moment you have especially with your loved ones and friends!
