1) How to Make Baggage Hassle Free
Airlines and airports have strict regulations on baggage, which works to our disadvantage during the holiday season. Size and weight limitations; and what you can carry in your hand luggage or carry on, makes packing for the holiday an arduous process. Passing through airport security is an agonizing part of the flight, but we need it for our safety. So, the best thing to do is do not wrap the gifts. Save the wrapping for the end, in case, TSA wants to inspect the gift. Read the other tips on how to travel with gifts at the airport.
2) Airport Services
The holiday season is one of the busiest times for air travel and the best way to expedite the passage through the crowd is with airport assistance.

4) Go Online Before Heading To The Airport
There are different ways to cut short your time at the check in counter. Do an online check in online—24 hours before your scheduled flight and print your boarding pass at home. Some airports have self-check in kiosks too, which reduces time spent at the airline counter. These steps also secure your seat, double-check changes for the flight timing, and reduces your chances of getting bumped in an overbooked flight.
Your smartphone is the biggest assistance. You can check in from your smartphone and use a digital bar code on the screen to pass through the airport.
