How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Vancouver
If you like the thought of spending more time at the airport bars and restaurants and less time moving through security on your way to Vancouver, just follow these helpful tips:
- Make sure you know the location of your passport and boarding pass. You don't want to hold up the line when you're asked to produce them.
- Keep in mind that belts with metal buckles can set off the body scanner's alarms. If you're wearing one, you may be asked to step back and take it off before moving forward.
- Ensure your laptop, phone and other electronic devices are easily accessible. These items need to be sent through the X-ray machine in separate tubs.
- Lip balm, toothpaste and other toiletry items in cream, liquid or gel form need to be stored in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). They must also fit in a 1-quart (1-liter) clear zip-lock bag.
- The airport security will likely tell you to remove your shoes before entering the body scanner. Wear a pair that you can take off easily. There's nothing more annoying than having to do your laces up over and over again.
- Put any pocketknives or other pointy items in your checked luggage. Airport security won't allow such things in carry-on baggage.
