1. Get Some Wheels
Airports are vast spaces with line-ups that can challenge the stamina of travellers half your age. Take it easy: Reserve a wheelchair from your airline (they’re free!) and roll your way through security and customs right up to your gate.
2. Breeze Through Security Like a V.I.P.
There are two ways to avoid the lines at security: Either get an American Express Black Card, or, if you have a disability or medical condition and are travelling in the United States, present a TSA notification card. (It’s never a bad idea to bring a note from your doctor either.)
3. Take the Fast Lane
After a long and tedious flight, there’s nothing worse than waiting in the line for customs with the masses. If you get the Nexus card for travel between Canada and the United States, however, you’ll get access to expedited lines. These days, you can use your Nexus card at Global Entry kiosks for international flights, as well.
