Go left at security
Humans have a tendency to go right at airport security. Go against your urges and turn left. The queues tend to be shorter, so save time and go left.
Get ready before your security check
It’s incredibly frustrating watching other people go through airport security when they have made no preparations. They empty their pockets slowly, they remove their metal items slowly…everything is slow.
Don’t be that person, plan ahead. You know what is coming and what you need to do. Make the process quick for you and everybody else. Plan ahead, empty your pockets and remove any items in the queue.
Have your electronics and laptop ready
You may be asked to turn your electronic items on for security checks. Whether you agree or disagree with this, it happens. Save time by leaving your items in sleep mode. It speeds up the process for all concerned.
Take pictures of your parking spot
Finally, take a picture of your parking pot surroundings which it easy to identify. It’s amazing how many people ‘lose’ their vehicles in these massive car parks.
