Rules To Follow
There will be strict orders to follow the new rules both by passengers and the airlines due to the Corona pandemic. All the SOPs have to be followed by the passengers and the airline staff as well.
If we talk about the luggage and hand carries then there is nothing special that we can talk about. These rules will remain the same. You can use a hard plastic case or an ABS case to keep your stuff. Hard plastic cases are safe and you can find a quality case from any renowned seller or from Amazon.
While you buy a suitcase to keep your stuff, make sure that it has sufficient space in it and you can organize different items without any problem.
Also, you need to make sure that your carry or the suitcase has the right dimensions and should not be more than what is allowed by the airlines. Also, make sure that the total weight of your hard plastic case and the stuff in it don’t exceed the maximum weight allowed by your airline.
