So, here we are to give you the top few suggestions of how you can enter and leave the airport in least possible time:
Download the apps
There are numerous apps that you can download to not just save your time but also make your travel much more convenient. Whether it’s an app like Tripit that can tell you about upcoming cancellations or an official app of the airline you are flying with to help you check in much before you leave home for airport and obtain an electronic boarding pass, who knew your smartphone could be capable of saving so much time.
Pack it in
It is fairly obvious yet pretty much overlooked as a fact that we tend to waste much of our time in packing our luggage. So, it is suggested to keep your bags light so that you can take them on your flight as a carry on and save time that is wasted in waiting in long queues for checked-in baggage claim.
Getting your laptop removed from custom clearance can slow down your pace. If you have frequent business trips, especially to USA, you can think of investing into specially designed laptop bags in accordance with TSA security which do not need you to remove your laptop for customs clearance when moving ahead. This can save you plenty of time.
Track the fastest airports
While it may not always be a possibility, as and when possible spend some time in researching the fastest possible airport to ensure a quick and easy entry and exit for yourself.
Book a seat at the front of the plane
It does not even need to be mentioned that if you want to get off quickly, you should sit nearest to the exit gates. This way you can disembark and get on your way without waiting for others to leave and being caught in the middle.
If you have ever given it a glance, most people tend to go right into a queue as it is the dominant side. So, consider doing a flip and go left. This way you will be more likely to get a quicker and quitter queue.
Minimise the confusion
Whether you talk about checking the availability of parking at the airport or getting a cab while exiting the departure gates, remember to have these details in advance. It is also important to keep your documents handy, all at one place so you do not have to juggle inside your bag to find a piece of paper.

If you are travelling to a new destination, then be ahead of time by doing a thorough research beforehand to know which is the fastest exit. Also, if you are going to use public transport, read well about where and how to get it and use it. Find out as much as you can regarding the cost of taxis and the best ones to use.
