It should come as no surprise that you will have to go through airport security before being permitted onto the airplane. Therefore, you can avoid hassle by preparing for the obstacle.

You can most likely save yourself a little bit of time by using the self check-in kiosk often located near the check-in counter.

Your airline will most likely offer the option of checking in online, which will open 24 hours before your flight—utilize it! This tactic will allow you to avoid long lines, as well as possibly choose and reserve a specific seat on the plane.
