Take an early flight
Early birds enjoy more than fewer flight delays: they get to be first in line
at security. Monday mornings are even better, as lines are generally populated
with ultra-efficient business
travelers who know what they’re doing. Some airport security screenings open
as early as 4 AM.
Screeners are people too, and they’re working to keep you safe. Be polite and
cooperative, and you just might have a more pleasant airport
security experience. There’s no reason to be a jerk to the people that protect
Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, airport security is a fact of life. You’d probably rather not deal with it, but it doesn’t have to be an unpleasant experience. The key is to know the rules and be prepared before you get there. Follow these guidelines for a stress-free screening experience the next time you take to the skies.
