Ready, set, go! If you are traveling by plane, ensure everyone in your family has passports. With the new rules and regulations for plane travel in place, you can make the experience more palpable by making sure the entire family gets a good night’s sleep before the eventful day. Also, have a good breakfast and prepare to arrive at the airport at least three hours prior to flight time. You can check on line with the airline carrier to determine what can and cannot be taken on board the flight.
Bring some games for the kids to play with, along with coloring books and crayons for the younger children. This will keep them busy while waiting to board the flight. If the kids are flying for the first time, bring some candies or gum which will help alleviate any ear problems due to pressurized cabin. Check to see what amenities the airline has to offer. If they don’t, ask if you can bring along certain games for the kids to enjoy on the flight. Certain electronic games may be prohibited.
