Five tips on how to make yourself a good air traveller

Posted by Royal Sundaram on 10 Apr 2017


Manners are an important part of one’s personality, considered vital for maintaining a healthy social behaviour. Airlines have always been very particular about following a proper conduct, in order to serve their customers in the best possible way.

With increasing incidences of indecency on flights, airlines have become even more firm, taking action against any activities that are offensive or suspicious. Hence, with a careless action one can end up on unwanted troubles while travelling, resulting in a long-term of unnecessary inconvenience.

Below are 5 tips on how to become a good air traveller:


  1. Examine Your Online Activities

Your online activities, like a disrespectful Facebook post or twitter feed can serve as a deciding factor for the airlines, to stop you from boarding their airplane.

For instance, posting a joke about bombing a plane may be funny, but a reason strong enough to raise concerns against your respectability. Hence, be careful about the content you put up on social media.


  1. Do Not Be Disobedient

Anger and irritation often leads to disobedient behaviour. When you find yourself in such a situation, try to keep calm and resist any prompt actions. Kindly follow the queue and security checks at the airport systematically. Patience is the key here.


  1. Think Before You Speak

Interacting with fellow travellers is a sign of warmth and hospitality. However, you need to be very cautious about the things you choose to talk about.

You will probably meet people from different regions, and of different races and religions. Avoid talking about anything that is sensitive to any particular geographical area, race or religion. As these topics might make others uncomfortable. Terrorism is another such subject that should not be discussed casually, especially on flights. Even one wrong statement can raise suspicion against your reputation.


  1. Follow All formalities to the T

Your luggage will be security screened at the airport. Hence, it is very important to research on the items that are permissible or not permissible, on the basis of both, the airport rules and the country you are travelling to. Do not carry anything that can be confiscated by the authorities. These may raise unnecessary suspicions and scrutiny against you.


  1. Stay Away From Any Criminal Activities

Court cases and warrants are strong reasons for the airlines to consider you unfit to travel with them. Even a slightest hint of you breaking the law in the past, can you put you into trouble. Maintain a clean record and enjoy trouble free travels.

As long as you abide by the rules and maintain a dutiful social conduct, no one will accuse you of any fault. The above tips help you to enjoy a journey which provides a secure and peaceful experience, and without any worries. We wish you happy travels!
