Digital Check-In to Avoid Check-In Chaos

Time is of the essence, especially when it comes to airport procedures. Many airlines allow you to check-in online as early as 24 hours before your flight. This feature is a lifesaver, allowing you to pick your seats, print boarding passes, and even prepay for baggage fees. A handy trick? Screenshot your boarding pass. This way, even if your phone loses juice or you can't connect to the Wi-Fi, you're still ready to board.

Smart Packing with Atlantic® Luggage

The Atlantic® Convertible Medium to Large Checked Expandable Hardside Spinner, especially in its chic Shell White variant, will be your trusty sidekick when it comes to packing. This isn't just white luggage; it's the superhero of suitcases. In medium size, it's the perfect companion for shorter trips, but when you need to pack for the whole family or bring back a hoard of souvenirs, this bag expands to a large check-in size. It's super lightweight, yet when it comes to durability, it's as tough as they come.

Now, strategic packing is where our carry-on luggage really shines. It's a great idea to pack a change of clothes for each family member in your carry-on, as well as all your essential items. This is where the Atlantic® Carry-on Expandable Hardside Spinner comes into play. If you've got little ones, bring snacks, entertainment, and comfort items like their favorite blankets or stuffed animals to keep them content and occupied during the flight. And don't forget to bring a few plastic bags for trash or dirty diapers. With the organized compartments of Atlantic® luggage, finding what you need in a pinch is easy as pie. The whole family might just start looking forward to the packing process!

The Early Bird Catches the Flight

Arriving early at the airport can make all the difference. This allows ample time to go through security, locate your gate, and even grab a bite to eat. This is especially crucial when you're traveling with youngsters, who can add unexpected twists and turns to your journey.


Comfort is Key

Air travel can be taxing, particularly for the little ones. Remember to pack comfort items in your Atlantic® Drop-Bottom Weekender. From their favorite stuffed toy to a cozy blanket, these items can help your child feel at ease. Noise-canceling headphones can also be a game-changer, aiding in sleep and drowning out onboard sounds.


Humorous Hiccups: The Joy of Traveling with Kids

Journeying with youngsters is an adventure like no other. We've all had those flights where a toddler finds endless entertainment in the tray table, much to the mixed amusement and annoyance of fellow passengers. Or that frantic dash to the airport gift shop because you left behind your little one's beloved stuffed animal. While these moments may induce some stress, they also create priceless stories to recount later on.
