The key of keeping safe and secure is that the passenger should be very careful and keep focus on things which are happening around them. Even years after the WTC incident, air travelers are still under threat of terrorism. Even if it is very busy, an airport is considered as the prime set for a criminal or professional thief. There are some ways in which you can keep yourself safe and secure while flying.

Keep the photo identification safely:
If you are not having the photo identification, make sure of having two portions of identification forms of some other kind. You should include one issued by government authority. In the case of minors, they are not indebted to have the identification. Failure in producing proper identification normally results in additional inspection, search and security.

Manage to make some additional time during traveling:
With disabled or elderly passengers, infants or kids give more time for yourself for maneuvering through an airport or make essential arrangements with the airport authorities. It will be very helpful.

Be careful about unattended bags:
If you notice an unattended bag, packages or luggage inside the terminal, report immediately to the security staff at the airport or to some other airport staffs.

Be aware of the things you have:
Keep an eye on your luggage throughout all the shops, airport terminal and lavatories. Don’t ever accept bags or small packages from people whom you don’t know. You should be ready to answer questions regarding the packing of your bag and whether it is left unattended. You should keep your focus on that and answer honestly. There have been many incidents in which terrorists make use of strangers to carry their dangerous devices such as bombs and other stuff. If you are not sure about the safety of your bag, inform it to the airport security authorities.

Avoid fooling around:
Don’t ever try to bluff others about having firearm, weapons or bombs with you. Punishment will be very harsh in that case including imprisonment or other large fines and penalties. So avoid these types of things when you are in an airport.

Leave hazardous products and firearms at home:
Risky products are banned inside the airport. Do not carry fireworks, household cleaners, firearms, pressurized containers or other flammable materials. The violation of this rule may result in severe civil penalties.

Keep focus and report any odd or strange activity:
Keep an eye on the surroundings and people around you while in an airport or aircraft. If you notice something strange unfitting or some unusual behavior including the violation of security, inform it to some security personnel or law
enforcement official.

Keep your self away from doubtful circumstances:
If you got exposed to some potential risk while in airport, stay away from it before informing to some personnel. If any unusual disturbance, unaccompanied packages or suspicious behavior is noticed, stay away from it.

Fasten your seatbelts and listen to flight attendants while in plane:
After seated, keep your seat belt fastened throughout your flight. It provides additional protection if something unexpected happens. The flight attendants are primarily for safety in an aircraft. They are for the assistance and help of the passengers in potential crisis or emergency situations.

Wireless devices, basic rules and emergency use:
In America, pagers, mobile phones and other forms of wireless communication can be used till the passenger entry doors. This rule may vary from country to country. So it will be better to enquire your airline. In the case of an in-flight emergency, study the situation before using and communication device and if the situation demands, call for other personnel for help.

If any problem occurs during the journey or while in airport, it will be better if you share the information with passengers and crew members and work together. By following the essential precautions while flying, travel will be safe and peaceful.
