Flight travels are comfortable and really easy to go through with. You reach your destination within a short span of time, and once you are in the airport, chances of missing the flight are pretty low. The airport authorities see to it that their passengers are well tended to and face no problem while they embark on their journey with one of the airlines. The system that keeps everything in the perfect working order within these airports is all because of the relentless efforts of the airport authorities. Therefore, as passengers, we too have a certain responsibility upon our shoulders to ensure that flights are on time and the premises of airports are clean and green. The article talks about all the things you must do before you board your flight so that you can travel without a smidgen of discomfort while also dispensing your duties towards the airlines and the airport.
Download the Airline App:

Unless you have bags to check-in, there is absolutely no need to queue up in the check-in and baggage-drop counters. Your airline app will deliver all the information you require to understand your flight details. You can head over directly to the security and get done with it. You can look up an air travel blog or two to find more information about the right ways of using an airline app.
Notch Up Your Organization Skills:
Having a bit of organization skills never hurt anyone. You might want to put your messy lifestyle at rest when you take that flight since being organized shall not only help you be on time but also allows airlines to extend their services in the best possible ways. Keep your passport, visa and other travel documents ready so that you can reach out for them whenever required. Have your flight details ready so that you do not have to run around for information at the last minute. Once you are inside the flight, make sure that you are organized with your seating. It takes a lot of effort to keep the cabin clean after the conclusion of each journey. Therefore, you must not add on to the trouble by strewing waste recklessly after you reach your destination, or once you are inside the plane.
Remember the 3-1-1 Liquids Rule:

One of those very important rules is the 3-1-1 Liquids Rule which states that you are only allowed to carry any liquid matter weighing 3.4 ounces and placed in a transparent plastic bag which is not larger than one quart. The rule ensures that there is no unwanted spillage of liquids because such a situation could be too messy for every other on-board passenger.
Check the Status of Your Flight in Real-Time:
Your airline app might have a myriad of features, but they might not suffice when it comes to furnishing real-time information about your flight status. You must always keep an eye out for your flight status once you reach the airport for any changes in the schedule. That way, you can stay ahead with your plan of action and do what needs to be done in an unforeseen circumstance of cancellation of flights or a significant delay. It always bodes well to have a backup, a plan B.
Check Your Electronics and Gather Your Gadgets:
You must know that you are not allowed to carry all types of electronics in your check-in baggage. Gather all your electronics, remove your batteries and check up on whatever you are allowed to take on-board and in the check-in baggage. Once you have the information about whatever electronics you are allowed to carry and what you are not, you can think of alternative ways, if required, to carry your gadgets. Also, while you are going through with your security checks, make sure that you have gathered all your electronics separately and in a place to be scanned. This is purely for safety, but is an imperative step nevertheless.
Catching the flight to travel to your dream destination or to reach to your business meeting on time might be interesting.

Therefore, do all that is expected out of you and make your flight a happy and comfortable one. Do not shy away from your responsibilities and help keep airports and airlines at the best of their conditions.
