Hello Ashton Pointe! Are
your traveling out of town for the Thanksgiving Holidays. Air travel is
expected to be up 11% this holiday season. Don’t skip out on the
airport yet. Yes, the lines are long at the ticket counter, security
checkpoint, and the bathrooms once you have landed, but if you plan
properly you can decrease your wait time or avoid the lines altogether.
If you want to learn how to decrease your time in line read on.
1. Check in online – Nowadays most airlines allow you to check -in
online. This way your able to skip the line at the ticket counter. If
you have no bags to check you will be to go directly to the security
check point. Congratulations you have just skipped your first line! If
you have to check your bags do not worry you can do that online at the
same time you check your ticket. You will have to stand in line to drop
your bag off, but that line is typically shorter than other lines and
moves pretty fast.
2. Once you get to the security checkpoint make sure you already have
your liquids in the proper containers otherwise that holds up the
process and you may even get your favorite lotion trashed. Do not wait
until it is your turn to take your shoes off, etc. get prepared while
you are waiting.
3. The first thing everyone does when they get off the plane is go to
the bathroom. Naturally, that will cause the closest bathroom to have a
line especially the women’s bathroom. Walk down the terminal towards
baggage claim and you are sure to pass an empty stall.
Well, I hope this helps you to avoid line at the airport. For more tips please visit our community blog again.
