Before leaving home you must check that your are carrying valid passport and correct tickets. In India at some airports you may only get entry by showing a valid passport and e-ticket to the security on the entrance. Make sure your name on the ticket matches to the name in the passport. Now you are inside the airport and all you need to do is to check your bags. Now you have to remember two things, check-in your bags and carry your hand bag or cabin bag with you Check-in process is a simple process. All you have to do is to go to your airline’s counter and present the passport and e-tickets At the same time you can drop your bags as well and get the acknowledgement Online check-in and bag drop facility is offered by many airlines. Availing this facility may some time of your at the airport. Anyway, your bags are now checked-in and gone to the cargo, make sure you get the acknowledgement which is nothing but a barcode This barcode will help you find your bags in airline has misplaced them Please don’t misplace the barcode and keep it safe until you reach and collect the bags at the other end! Immigration is the simple process of filling a form and submitting it to the immigration counter Allow plenty of time to yourself as at some airports in India there may be long queues! In case you have reasons to show some documents etc. then allow yourself extra time. Next step is “Security”. Read carefully about what you can and cannot take with you. This information is generally available at airline’s website. Generally explosives, sharp items, lighters ect. are now allowed. Ensure you are not taking any banned item to the destination or stop-over country as this may land you in trouble. Check airline’s website. Security checks are to check you and your possession and confirm that you are not taking any objectionable elements with you. This is for your safety hence help authorities with it. Next step is boarding. You may feel exited or nervous. Remember two things 1. Keep your boarding pass ready 2. Know your seat number, class or section. To keep your hand baggage, there are overhead lockers that you can use. Remove any item that you may need during the journey. Once all other fellow passenger stuff their baggage you may find it difficult and it will be disturbing to others You can keep any such item in front of you under the front seat which will come handy. Check your surrounding, you will find folding tray attached to the back of front seat, a remote control to operate the in-flight entertainment and some utility stuff Keep your seat belt on. Smocking is not allowed inside the plane hence you must not try it. Usually you are served food during your journey Try moving in intervals and stretch to keep you fresh Limit your intake In you are feeling hungry then you can ask for tea, coffee, crisps or chocolates from crew members or you can help yourself from the pentry at the back of front of the plane Make sure you are all awake and ready for landing You have filled the arrival immigration form If you are feeling pain in the ear during the landing process then try swallowing your saliva or chew something that will ease out the pain Use ear plugs I hope you liked this video.
