Tips from an Airport Pro
Traveling is one of the greatest experiences a person can have. I truly believe we’re meant to be adventurers, curious in our minds and hearts, and constantly ready to learn about new places. But how adventurous can a person actually feel while trekking through a massive airport, running gate to gate, trying to make a flight? Not so much. There is a way to take the stress out of travel, especially if you’re flying by plane.

Check in 24 hours before the flight.
It’s the ultimate time saver. Most airlines let you check in 24 hours before your flight, which will save you a massive amount of time when you’re actually in the airport, navigating.
Sign up for updates on your flight.
Things can go awry, especially when it comes to travel. To make sure you’re up-to-date with traffic and potential setbacks, download your airline’s app and keep checking for updates. No one wants to arrive at the airport, ready to board, and then find out the flight has a 10-hour delay.
Keep essentials accessible.
It’s a known fact that when going through TSA security, laptops need to be taken out. A clear bag full of liquids also needs to be taken out of the bag. To save time, make sure these essentials are accessible before you get there. Don’t be the person digging through your carry-on to find the laptop at the bottom of your tote bag.
Add your pass to your Apple Wallet.
Let’s face it — it’s 2017 and paper is just not environmentally friendly, plus it’s annoying to have to hold onto. Digital is the way to go when traveling. I always feel much more comfortable adding my boarding pass into my Apple Wallet because I know I’m going to have my phone in my hand anyway. Just make sure you have a Mophie or access to a plug, so you can keep your phone completely charged.
