Top Tips to Avoid the Hustle and Bustle at the Airport

by Traveleads | April 11, 2019 | Latest News On The Ground

For those who wish to have a calmer and more leisurely experience when traveling – our team here at Traveleads have some not to miss tips on how you can do just this.

Avoid Peak Times – between the hours of 5am-8am is best to avoid if you want to miss the mass influx of people. If you are flexible enough to book after these times, it can save you incredible amount of time as this inevitably means that you will spend less time queuing through security, waiting for luggage and more time to relax or shop around.

Fly from a secondary airport – Being flexible when travelling abroad can be a key aspect of your entire experience. If you are aware that the airport you are travelling from is going to be busy, try an alternative. Most often smaller regional airports are overlooked and have fewer footfalls. Ultimately, the smaller in size results in being easier to navigate and find what you need when it comes to things like rental car hire, luggage pick-up and security. All in all this would be a lot less stress.

Air charter service – Chartering an aircraft for your transportation and cargo needs is becoming an increasingly popular option for businesses and organizations. There are a few major reasons why you may choose this over a commerical airline. This includes schedule as they will be dedicated to providing a flight itinerary suited to your needs rather than to the airline’s own schedule needs.

  • Flexibility: When you fly using a commercial airline, you have a very limited choice of airports. Commercial airlines only serve a few hundred of the world’s largest airports.
  • Avoid Delays: Don’t sit around the airport for hours because of cancelled or delayed flights, or worse, overbooking. Air charter flights are seldom delayed unless there is a serious weather problem.
  • Comfort: While there are many levels of air charter, from cargo to luxury jets, you can expect luxurious travel conditions on most charter flights, and you won’t have to share your cabin with a crying baby or cranky passengers unless you happen to bring them along yourself!
  • Convenience: From check-in to deplaning, the entire air charter procedure is managed for your convenience and comfort. You won’t have to arrive three hours early to check in for your flight or wait in a long line at a crowded airport to board your plane. On board, you’ll have privacy and, in most cases, the environment and amenities you need to work or relax at your leisure. And since your baggage travels with you, there’s never any need to stand around and wait until your luggage arrives, or worse, doesn’t arrive. In many cases you can even have your ground transportation pull up directly next to the plane and just walk a few steps to the car.
