Travel tips

Domestic travellers
People travelling domestically are advised to arrive at the airport at least one and a half hours prior to their departure time.

International travellers
People travelling internationally are advised to arrive at the airport at least three hours prior to their departure time.

  • Plan your trip systematically, including packing in advance - do not leave arrangements to the last minute.
  • Add at least 30 minutes to your normal airport travel time.
  • Be sure to pack your own luggage, secure it properly (loose straps may catch in the conveyor belts), lock it, and if possible shrink wrap it and attach identification tags.
  • Do not place valuable items into checked baggage (such as cellphones, laptop computers or jewellery), and
  • Do not leave your luggage unattended - whether it is check-in or cabin luggage.
