Read below Jovago Pakistan’s tips to be on time for your flight and have safe and comfortable travels.


1. Always try to book non-stop flights

No doubt, the feeling of being on a flight for hours and hours is no less than a nightmare, but at the end of the day, you know for sure that you will arrive to your destination on time! With connecting flights, which are usually much cheaper and more easily available than non-stop flights, there is always a chance to miss your next flight if your current one is delayed.


2. Don’t forget to have a look at the weather forecasts

For the times when you have the choice to decide your travel dates, make sure that you chose the dates when there are no predictions of rain, snowfall or any other natural calamities. It is always a good idea to book your flights at least 100 days before your departure so that you have plenty of options to choose your travel time.

3. Early to rise, early to fly

Mornings are usually the most efficient time of day for most airlines. The chances of flights running as per schedule are high during the early part of the day as opposed to late departure flights. The good news is that your chances of having vacant seats beside you is higher when you choose to fly early as it is the time of day when airlines have the least passenger traffic!

4. Avoid travel during the peak times

It is always better to arrive a bit earlier or later than the peak travelling times; for example, traveling during summer break, Eid Holidays, winter and/or Spring Break. By doing so, not only will you find best booking rates online, but also reduce the probability of being vulnerable to travel uncertainties, flight delays being one of them.
