If you like the thought of spending more time at the airport cafes and less time at the security checkpoint on your way to Chiang Mai, follow these useful tips:
- Make sure you know the whereabouts of your passport and boarding pass. You don't want to hold up the queue when you're asked to present them.
- Bear in mind that belts with metal buckles can set off the body scanner's alarms. If you have one on, you may be instructed to take it off before continuing.
- Electronic goods such as laptops, phones and cameras will need to be put through the X-ray machine separately. Be sure they're easily accessible.
- When you approach the security checkpoint, you'll be asked to put all gels, liquids and creams in a separate tub for scanning. Make sure they're all packed in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and sealed in a clear zip-lock bag.
- Consider your choice of footwear. Slippers are great because they're a cinch to slip out of for the airport security checks. Try wearing a pair on your next flight!
- The list of non-permissible items is forever changing. Browse your carrier's website to understand what is not allowed on board their aircraft.
