Ensure that you pack your baggage yourself in compliance with security guidelines.
For safety reasons, dangerous articles must not be packed in check-in or hand baggage. Restricted articles include but are not limited to compressed gases, corrosives, explosives, flammable liquids and solids, radioactive materials, oxidizing materials, poisons, infectious substances, and briefcases with installed alarm devices. Any liquid, aerosol or gel such as drinks, creams, perfumes, sprays, paste and any item of a similar consistency must be placed in a container with a capacity no greater than 100ml. All containers should fit comfortably in a transparent re-sealable plastic bag which should be no greater than one litre in volume (20cm x 20cm or 25cm x 15cm). All other baggage terms and conditions can be found here.
It is recommended to reach the airport at least 3 hours prior to departure time, taking into consideration traffic congestion and peak times.
In order to be accepted for travel, you must carry the appropriate travel documents such as your passport and visa (or a government-issue photo ID for domestic travel) as well as the credit card that was used to purchase your ticket, if you booked online.
