The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is encouraging travelers to take an active role in aviation safety when they fly this holiday season.
Travelers can make their flight even safer by taking a few minutes to follow these important guidelines:
- Pay attention to the flight attendant safety briefing at the beginning of your flight and read the safety briefing card.
- Buckle up. Keep yourself and your family safe by wearing a seatbelt at all times while seated.
- Use an approved child safety seat or device if your child weighs less than 40 pounds.
- Prevent in-flight injuries by following your airline's carry-on bag restrictions.
