Packing for Your Local Flight

So you have decided to fly out of a local airport to reach your destination! How exciting! Now that you have taken this first step, here are some great tips and tricks to making sure you maximize your packing and money saving at the same time.

LUGGAGE

Undoubtedly, if you are connecting your local flight at a major airport hub for a destination that is very far away, you will be checking your bag. The most important thing to do if you are checking your luggage is to pick luggage that is very unique looking and distinguishable. Already have luggage and don’t want to buy more? No problem! One thing that you can do is to take a small piece of colored tape or ribbon and tie it around the handle of your suitcase or bags. In this manner, you will be able to find your baggage easily at the baggage claim among the host of other bags. Also, using tape or a ribbon will make your bags easy to spot for the airplane luggage loaders.

CARRY ONS

Oftentimes, if you are flying from a local airport, the aircraft will be somewhat smaller than if it were flying out of a major airport hub. As a result, you need to make sure that your carry ons comply with the restrictions set forth by the airline. Otherwise, you may run the risk of your delicate carry ons being checked, which could subsequently incur extra costs. You can usually find the carry on restrictions on the airliner’s website online.
