If you want to take a flight, getting through a security check is necessary. But sometimes it’s quite annoying to stand in line and wait for the check. Here are some tips for you to get through the airport security faster.
Security fast pass
Do you know you can buy a security fast pass? Some examples are the CLEAR Program, APEC Travel Cards, and TSA Precheck… let’s take the TSA Precheck as an example, this pass will spend you USD$85, but by having this pass, you don’t have to remove your shoes, liquids, laptop or belt during the security check for 5 years. Consider this if you are a frequent traveler.
Outfit is important
If you want to get through the security check faster, avoid belts and metal buckles. Do not wear jewelry if possible, because it wastes your time to take off and they put on. Besides, some jackets are designed to have some hidden pockets, you can put all your wallet, keys and passport there beforehand, and directly put your jacket into the security tray during the check.
Always choose the right backpack, if you are going to bring along with your laptop, choose one with separate laptop compartments. Also, choose one with external stash pockets, so that you can put your phone, passport or wallet there. Finally, put liquids in a separate clear bag and put it at the top of your backpack.
