For some people airports are as fancy as the place they plan to jet off to. For others it’s just another place for their everyday commute.
Whichever category that you fall into, it’s not as breezy as walking in and sitting on your seat in the craft, there are a million formalities that you need to go through before you do so and some of them can actually be a little frazzling
It’s important that the passengers and airport and airline workers cooperate and work in tandem to smoothen out the process and for which certain etiquettes need to be borne in mind.
First and foremost be punctual. You do not want to harass and get harassed trying to rush through the processes, and God forbid that the counters are crowded, it could be a nightmare for you and the officials to get you onto the plane and without any delay, high chances that you could even miss your flight, so to reduce the stress, arrive early. While at the counter, maintain the queue. Very few people do so, everyone is in a hurry to cut ahead, be courteous, everyone has a flight to catch remember.

Pack smart, pack light. There is no use in trying to fight with the airline official and ask them to let your extra kilos go through without payment of excess. They are just doing their job remember? Also, you don’t want to repack in the middle of the airport trying to juggle the extra stuff between your in cabin bag and your check in. If you do end up transferring excess to the in cabin you will just have to lug around that heavy bag all through for no reason. Also, bear in mind what is valid and invalid to pack in your luggage it will save you the inconvenience of being hauled and questioned during security check.

Keep all your documents in place. Ensure that you have your valid ID’s, that your Visa is current and legit, and that your passport and ticket itself is on you. Keep everything handy. With all due respect, if you have a medical condition, declare it before getting on the flight, don’t inconvenience the whole flight mid air.
Use a travel organizer such as this Eiffel Tower Organizer by Bliss so that you have your documents in one place.
Use muted tones while conversing at the airport and inside the aircraft. If your seat is next to a passenger with a child offer the window seat (if it’s yours). Kids are fascinated by the outside and will keep them from creating a scene, if possible and the flight is relatively empty, ask to be shifted so that the child gets enough space to spread around and be comfortable. If you are travelling with a kid, try and ensure that your co passengers aren’t inconvenienced by their behaviour. Use whatever method or tactic that you need to calm your child.
Be polite to the stewards and stewardesses. Do switch off your mobile phone, turn your tray table up, roll up the window shade and keep your seat upright. Imagine having to repeat yourself to every person in the plane! Their job is to ensure your comfort and they will do everything within their means to make sure of it. With co-passengers, remember never to get too nosey and ask personal questions.
Respect the fact that you are travelling in limited space and as childish as it may sound, keep your hands to yourself. In case there is a celebrity on board, control your excitement and respect their privacy. To sum it all, have a great flight and let others have the same.
