The airport can be a stressful place, with everyone rushing around to get to their flight on time, checking bags, and going through security. That’s why arriving a few hours early is usually the best method to make sure everything gets done on time, especially if you have children flying with you.
However, not everyone has the luxury of arriving hours before their flight due to work or other scheduling conflicts. If you don’t have the extra time, here are some tips for being more efficient at the airport. If you can get these things done quickly, you can minimize the time you have to spend at the airport before your flight.
- Prep at home. You can weigh your bags, check in, and confirm flight status and parking right from your home before you arrive at the airport. These steps are easily completed online and can save you valuable time in the check-in desk and checked baggage line.
- Have only what you need. Figure out what you’re going to need between your home and the plane. Keep documents, money, and other important things in a place that’s easy to reach, and make sure everything else is tucked away in your carry-on or checked bag so it doesn’t get in your way.
- Know where you’re going. Check out your gate and the layout of the airport before you ever plan to get on your flight. That way you don’t waste valuable time trying to navigate the airport when you get there.
- Book your airport taxi beforehand. Reserve your taxi when you book your flight to save yourself time and stress. At Top-Notch Taxi – DFW DAL Airport Service, I offer booking in advance.
