Tips for Comfortable Homecoming by Airplane
Although it tends to be faster and more practical, going home by plane just before Eid will of course be as crowded as other modes of transportation. Moreover, the ease of accessing transportation by air has indeed made many people land the same choice, namely traveling by plane.
Now, when many people are about to leave, then maybe this condition will make you feel uncomfortable during the plane. So what are the tips for going home comfortably on the plane? Let’s take a look at the interesting information below.
Know the Departure Terminal
For those of you who are already fixed, choose the mode of airplane transportation to go home to your hometown. This may be the right choice, because maybe train and bus tickets are already full of purchases by other people who are also competing to celebrate Eid together with their relatives.
However, before holidays like this, don’t get me wrong if airplane tickets will be more expensive because departure quotas to several destinations in Indonesia do make tickets sell more quickly at this time. Therefore, don’t ignore a few things when you choose to go home by plane.
One of them is to know your departure terminal very well. This is because some of the largest airports in Indonesia have a total of 3 different terminals where this terminal is devoted to different airlines.
For this reason, it is very important to pay attention to where your departure terminal is properly located. This will make it easier for you to access the airlines that you have chosen well.
Often for some ordinary departure occasions, some airlines give spare time about 3 hours before take off. This time may make some airplane passengers feel more relaxed and may arrive longer before departure.
However, just before going home, you should be more careful waiting for this. During the homecoming season, especially the peak of the homecoming flow, usually the airport will be very crowded compared to normal days.
So, to avoid unwanted things, please come early. This will also allow you to be able to get a seat while you are waiting. In addition, arriving early will certainly make you feel calm and you just have to wait for departure. For him, avoid coming too tight or even late because this will probably make you miss your flight.
Use Public Transportation
We recommend that in order to avoid traffic jams to the airport, use public transportation rather than using a private car. In addition, using public transportation doesn’t need to make you save or park your car at the airport for a long time. In addition to being wasteful due to the price of parking fees, this will probably make you uneasy during your homecoming.
Therefore, use public transportation when you are going to the airport. If you are worried about the hassles of using public transportation, then choose one that is comfortable. For example, like taxis and other transportation that can match your choice.
It’s just that the most important thing is to take care of all the things you carry. Don’t let it because you don’t want to be complicated, then this will actually make you ignore the safety and security of the items you carry.
Most Indonesian airlines do provide free baggage allowance for each passenger. However, this allocation is also limited and cannot be done freely. An average of 15 to 20 kg is allocated for each passenger. So, to solve problems or things that are not desirable when weighing baggage. So you should pay attention to your packing at home.
Weigh it if necessary first. This will prevent you from missing the baggage weighing incident at the airport. Also, you should avoid bringing in products or items brought from here.
It would be better if you bring enough funds that will be able to support your trip and later you will be safe while doing homecoming. Besides it will be quite a hassle. This can also make it difficult for you when carrying it.
Do not sleep yet
Usually for some people traveling by plane for a long duration will be quite boring. Not infrequently, this often makes them uncomfortable while on the plane. For him to avoid this incident, don’t sleep first.
So that way, you will be able to sleep on the plane. This will be very effective in overcoming your boredom while on the plane. This way, your trip will feel lighter and more comfortable.
That is some information that can be conveyed from tips for going home comfortably by plane. Hopefully, listening to some of the things above will help you to feel comfortable when traveling home. So that the plan to gather together with relatives there will be even more fun.
