Commercial airplane flight is a common form of long-distance travel and one that is, for many, central to their experience of travel. With this in mind, Wikivoyage has a wide array of information and advice for the budding air passenger in order to make your experience of sitting in a metal tube at 35,000 feet for hours on end less stressful and more enjoyable.

Our main guide to the standard procedures, rules, and other basics of travelling by air (some of which have changed in recent years) is arranged in four articles covering different stages of air travel, from the planning phase, through to reaching your destination. The articles are:
