Business Trip

Business people very often go from place to place, or to several places especially to distant places to sell or buy and take orders for their companies.

Nowadays people who go on business mostly travel by air, as it is the fastest means of traveling. Here are a few hints on air travel that may be helpful. Passengers are requested to arrive at the airport two hours before departure on international flights and an hour on domestic flights as there must be enough time to complete the necessary airport formalities.

Passengers must register their tickets, weigh in and register the luggage. Most airlines have at least two classes of travel, first class and economy class, which is cheaper. Each passenger of more than two years of age has a free luggage allowance. Generally this limit is 20 kg for economy class passengers and 30kg for first class passengers. Excess luggage must be paid for except for the articles that can be carried free of charge. Each passenger is given a boarding pass to be shown at the departure gate and again to the stewardess when boarding the plane.

Watch the electric sign flashes when you are on board. When the `Fasten the Belts` sign goes on, do it promptly, and also obey the `No Smoking` signal. Do not forget your personal belongings when leaving the plane.

Landing formalities and customs regulations are more or less the same in all countries. While still on board the plane the passenger is given an arrival card.

After the passenger has disembarked, officials will check his passport. In some countries they will check the passenger`s certificate of vaccination.

The traveler is also requested to go through an AIDS check within ten or fourteen days of his/her arrival in the country. If the traveler fails to do so some strict measures could be taken by the authorities including imprisonment (in some countries) or payment of a considerable penalty. When these formalities have been completed the passenger goes to the customs for an examination of his luggage. As a rule personal belongings may be brought in duty-free. If the traveler has nothing to declare he may just go through the `green` section of the customs. In some cases the customs inspector may ask you to open your bags for inspection. It sometimes happens that a passenger`s luggage is carefully gone through in order to prevent smuggling. After you are through with all customs formalities the inspector will put a stamp on each piece of luggage or chalk it off.
