Airport formalities Passengers are requested to arrive at the airport 2 hours before departure time. They must register their tickets, weigh in and register the luggage. Most airports have at least 2 classes of travel, first class and economy class, which is cheaper. Each passenger of more than 2 years of age has free luggage allowance. Generally this limit is 20 kg for economy class passengers and 30 kg for first class passengers, excess luggage must be paid for except for some articles that can be carried free of charge. The rules for passengers who are going abroad are similar in most countries but sometimes there might be a slight difference in formalities. If for instance, you are supposed to begin with going through the Customs, youd better fill in the customs declaration before you talk to the customs officer. He may ask any passenger routine questions about declare the things, spirits, tobacco, presents. Then you go to the check-in-counter where your ticket is looked at, your things are weighed and labelled. The next formality is filling in the immigration form and going through passport control. The form has to be filled in block letters. You write your name, nationality, permanent address and the purpose of your trip. In most countries there is also a security check when your carry-luggage is inspected. This is an anti-hijacking measure, and anything that might be dangerous or disturbing to other passengers must be handed to one of the crew and only returned to the owner after the plane has reached its destination. After fulfilling all these formalities you go to the departure lounge where you can have a snack, read a paper buy something in the duty-free shop and wait for the announcement to board the plane. Some of these formalities are repeated when you arrive at your destination. The customer declaration and the immigration form are often filled in on board the plane. At the airport you may be met by a specially trained dog to make sure that you are not carrying drugs, and the immigration officer might want to know on whose invitation you are coming and whether you have a return ticket. There is one inconvenience you have to be prepared for when you are traveling long distances by plane. Its a difference between the time you are accustomed to and the new time. At first you wont be feeling very well because of it, but dont worry it wont take you long to get used to it.
