Flight Plan
If you are going to a country lying in the distant part of the world from your home, you are most like to take plane, if your trip is not sea cruise. Plane is the fastest and the easiest way to reach your point of destination, but sometimes not the cheapest one. If you are traveling within your country borders or your way leads to the neighboring country, usually you have a choice of transport means – train, bus, plane – or even car. However, if you are to make several thousands of miles – it will be much more convenient to take plane, especially if you are short in time.

Traveling by air is the most frightening way of traveling. Millions of people all over the world are afraid of flying! Even some sportsmen, who are supposed to be brave, prefer to make long passages in bus, than to spend several hours in the air. Nowadays there exist a lot of physiological groups to defeat the fear of flights.

This fear has its reasons – planes really fall down. But – the trains and buses also crash and the ships sink sometimes. So, it cannot be said that the plane is less safe than any other means of transport. However concord flights, after several accidents considered not safe, were abolished.

Several advises before taking the plane:

1) Take some pillows which can help you to avoid feeling seek.
2) Take some books or magazines to entertain you.
3) When you register your luggage – don't forget to notice that it's leading to the same airport as you. Sometimes it can fly to the other part of world and it will be very difficult to find.

Several advises during the flight:

1) If you can sleep in a plane – you are lucky. It is the best way to spend your flight.
2) Don't drink too much alcohol – or you will feel sick no matter having you take pillows or not.
3) If you are still nervous, take some relaxants or soporific.

The existence and the amount of the food on board depend on the length of your flight and the air company you are traveling with. Sometimes during the flight you can not only eat or drink, you can also buy some goods duty free. Prices are mostly the same as in the airport duty free shops, but the choice can be more limited.

When you are leaving or arriving the country, you have to spend some time (usually quite a long time) in the airport. Be ready and prepare some patience – long queries and crowds of people arriving and departing are almost in every airport. Remember that the registration usually begins two hours before departure time. If you are coming half an hour before your flight, there is a risk that you will miss it.

To travel abroad you need your foreign passport and sometimes visa. In some countries they stamp their visa in the airport. For example, in Egypt this procedure is quite simple. Anyway, have all the necessary documents with you.

Traveling by air is very convenient and there still some places on earth you can't reach in other way. So, don't exclude this comfort because of the baseless fear.
