For Business Travellers

Lots of people travel for purposes related to their work. While internet booking engines have become the first destination for around 60% of leisure travelers, business travelers, especially with the need for itineraries that may include more than one destination, have still found that a knowledgeable travel agent may be their best resource for better ticket pricing, less hassle and better air and land travel planning. These travel agents take on a travel management role providing services such as consultancy, traveller tracking, data and negotiation assistance and policy advice. Over the last years, many airlines began to concentrate on providing high-class service on long haul flights especially for the first and business class. Airlines have also been working on tools that benefit the business travellers such as: Improved and competitive mileage programs, quick check in and online check in, lounges with broadband connection, etc. Hotels are not far behind. They are also on the competition for the business travellers by offering flexible points programs, broadband connection in all rooms and fast check in and check out services.

As a business travellers, you’re probably quite used to the routine of air travel. At Altair Travel, we know that many business travellers prefer to travel with carry-on baggage rather than checked luggage as it reduces the chances of it getting delayed and saves time! Speed up screening and get to your departure gate faster, by following these few tips:
  • Have your boarding pass ready to present.
  • Tag your carry-on and checked baggage with both your work address and the contact information at your destination
  • GPS equipment, iPods, PDA’s, mobile phones, and smartphones (i.e. BlackBerry, iPhone) do not need to be screened separately. These can stay in your carry-on baggage and will not be harmed by the screening equipment.
  • Remove laptop computers, video cameras with cassettes, and film cameras from their carry-cases and place them in the bins provided.
  • Pack camera film in your carry-on baggage. The equipment used at the pre-board screening checkpoints will not damage film under 800 ISO/ASA.
  • Remove sport coats, suit jackets, and blazers and place them in the bins provided.
  • Take the opportunity to empty all contents of your shirt and pant pockets  and place these items in the bins before passing through the walkthrough metal detector.
  • If you are Travelling to the US, you will be required to remove your shoes and place them in the bins. This is NOT a requirement when Travelling solely within Canada.
  • Avoid wearing shoes with metal arches, buckles, steel-toes or shanks.
  • Avoid wearing belts with metal buckles.
  • Spare lithium batteries must be individually packaged to prevent short-circuiting and must be carried in carry-on baggage only. Each cell or battery must not exceed: 20 Watt-hours for cells, 100 Watt-hours for batteries.
  • Pop-up banner advertising and collapsible trade show booths are best transported as checked baggage. Please ensure these are labeled clearly with both your work address and the contact information where you’ll be staying (i.e. mobile phone number).
  • Place your transparent, closed and resealable plastic bag containing your liquids, aerosols and gels into a separate bin. If you are also travelling with exempted liquids, please remove them at this time and place them into the bin.
