With year-round warm weather, Ontario is a wonderful place to live and explore.
However, it’s nice to venture further afield every now and again, which means making your way through the dreaded airport.
Sinceairports are notorious for being places of stress, we’ve compiled this list of eight essential ONT Airport survival tips.
- Airport research
Part of peoples’ anxiety about airports comes from a fear of the unknown and unexpected. This is why you should take the time to research Ontario Airport. Find out if there’s wi-fi, what facilities there are and their opening times. You’ll be able to find out all this and more on the official Ontario Airport website.
- Assess the queues
It’s not just the queue length you should consider when deciding which line will move faster at security. You should also consider the people in the queue – who has loads jewelry? Who has herd of children with them? Who hasn’t got to grips with the 100ml rule?
- Find your gate
Your airport gate might well be the final part of ONT that you have to encounter, however, it’s worth locating it as soon as you’ve passed security. This way, you’ll know exactly where you’re going and avoid a mad rush to find your gate once it opens.
- Shop around
Getting a bite to eat is a great way to reward yourself and relax at the airport. However, airport food can be very pricey, so it’s worth looking around a few places and choosing the one which offers the best value for money.
If there’s one thing that’s guaranteed to help you survive ONT, it’s a nicely customized relaxation playlist. It’ll enable you to drown out airport noise and get into a chilled headspace. You can listen to it on your flight too – just make sure you use a music service that allows you to access it offline, such as Spotify Premium.
- Relaxation time
With so much to think about when you’re travelling through the airport, it’s easy for your mind to go into overdrive. So it’s worth finding a place to sit, relax and make sense of your thoughts. This could be a café, a quiet airport gate, or one of the Ontario Airport Escape Lounges.
- Luggage rules
The last thing you want is to have to pay an excess charge because your luggage is too large or heavy. Every airline is different, so make sure you’ve taken the time to read up on the rules and followed them to a tee.
- Drive to Ontario
If you don’t make it to the airport on time, all of your preparation will be wasted. So, rather than risk arriving late by taking unreliable public transport, you should drive instead – you’ll find Ontario Airport parking deals on Looking4.com.
With these tips to hand, you can look forward to a pleasant and relaxed experience during your next visit to ONT.
