At PKM, I serve in two roles. I am a member of our government services practice and a member of the audit staff. As a consultant in the government services practice, I traveled by air every week for an entire year! Needless to say, I picked up a few tips!

  • For Guys, when traveling through the airport, be sure to wear slip-on shoes and not lace-ups. It will make going through airport security a little easier and faster.
  • Always attach a business card to your luggage. If your luggage is lost by the airline, they can easily identify who the bags belong to.
  • If you have a smart phone then download the airline app.This serves to instantly notify you of gate changes and/or delays.
  • Sign-up for frequent flier programs.Points add up! You can qualify for elite status and gain special privileges, such as free upgrades, priority boarding and free baggage.

If you follow these tips you will be a professional “road warrior” in no time!
