How to Prevent a Missed Flight Out of Phoenix

There’s nothing quite like the stress of wondering if you’re going to make your next flight. Along with getting to your destination later (or not at all), a missed flight comes with several concerns, including the financial repercussions.

Today, we’re going to share some strategies to help ensure you don’t miss your next flight out of Phoenix so you can save yourself this stress.

Book your flight carefully

Certain times of day come with a higher chance of being late for a flight, including dealing with a congested airport or traffic issues. If you have many flight options to choose from, certain times are more strategic than others to help ensure you don’t miss your next flight.

Early morning flights mean you’re less likely to run into the traffic that comes with the morning or evening rush hour.

Not to mention, you’re less likely to experience delays or other issues with these flights.

Consider these insights from Reader’s Digest:

“According to data gathered by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, the best time to fly is between 6 and 7 a.m. Flights with scheduled departures in that timeframe arrived just 8.6 minutes late, on average. Meanwhile, flights that take off before 6—or between 7 and 8 in the morning—are fairly punctual, too.”

Pack strategically

It’s not always possible to only pack a carry-on for your next flight. But whenever possible, this is a helpful strategy for ensuring your next flight isn’t a missed flight!

You’ll also want to pack strategically when it comes to toiletries, electronics, and similar items when you’re going through security. If you haven’t already removed big containers of liquids, haven’t grouped liquids into clear bags, or packed your electronic devices where they’re easy to access, these will all slow down the security process.

Remember, for carry-ons, the liquids, gels, and aerosols you pack in your carry-on must follow the 3-1-1 liquids rule:

  • 3.4 ounces or less per container
  • 1-quart size, clear, plastic, zip-top bag (all liquids must fit in the bag)
  • One bag per passenger

Another helpful tip? Wear shoes that are easy to remove!

Reserve private transportation in advance
