- Finally, relax and enjoy the ride. Air travel can be a great opportunity to sit back, relax, and take in the scenery. Soak up the experience and make the most of your time in the air.

Tips for Traveling by Air
1. Every new traveler should always make inquiries and also make research about air travel to avoid any aviation glitches or issues on his way. Making inquiries about traveling is indeed one of the best ways by which you plan for your trip or vacation via air.
2. As a person traveling for the first time via air transport, you may not be conversant with aviation companies and airlines’ rules, regulations, and guidelines. You may have booked a flight with Ethiopian Airlines for a summer vacation that will take you from Lagos to New York. Some airlines have banned the carriage of batteries, toothpaste, and sharp objects on their airline. You are expected to check the rules and regulations of the airline you have boarded and know the things they accept and the items and things they reject on their airline.
3. For Your own safety, you should make a thorough and critical check on the items which you carry in your luggage. People are being tricked and used to carry contraband materials by strange people they met at the airport. You shouldn’t leave your bag and luggage in the custody of any stranger as they may hide items like hard drugs, marijuana, cocaine, Indian hemp, guns, knives, syringes, scissors, heroin, and even machetes in your bag.
4. Make sure that you get to the airport at least 2 hours before takeoff. For Instance, if you are taking a flight by 10 am from Lagos to New York in Muritala Mohammed International Airport, you are expected to arrive at the airport by 8 am or earlier. This is for you to know if any changes have been made or not.
5. Traveling by air is cool, but at times, it can get boring for you if you are a new traveler. You could sleep off or get tired of looking at the clouds outside of the window. You should save yourself from such boredom by bringing along things that will entertain you and keep you busy during your travel, like iPads, Jotters, Notepad, Chess, Cards, Game Consoles, etc.
6. Air travel can be quite expensive sometimes, especially if you are traveling with your family or a group of friends. You should look for a way to save money by using Air miles rewards credit cards and Air miles from your previous air travels. These Air miles can help you get some discount on your tickets and other items which you will purchase during the trip
7. Air travel is usually comfortable but it could be disastrous if you don’t know how to control yourself. Don’t get drunk or high before or during the flight as this may result in serious consequences like being thrown out of the plane, being arrested by security operatives at the airport or even getting into a fight with another passenger on the plane.
