Are you or a loved one a frequent flyer? There are many things you can do to reduce your waiting time at the airport, such as online check-ins and only traveling with carry-on luggage.
However, there is an easy way to can speed up your travel time within airports and perhaps beat other passengers to customs and immigration. The solution is the Micro Luggage Scooter. This carry-on luggage easily fits into overhead compartments, conforms to all TSA requirements, and still lets you drop the kickboard and ride your scooter to and from the boarding gate.
Even if you are in the middle of the pack in economy when you disembark, by the time you ride your suitcase/scooter to immigration in the average international airport, you will get there before even the first-class passengers. You’ll be out and on your way while most people are still waiting in line or even trudging through the long hallways.
Although I have yet to get my hands on one of these (unfortunately, my next flight is not until October), my friend travels with one all the time on business and says it is a huge time saver and a lot of fun.
Tip: On holidays, kids can take their scooters on airplanes; thus, the whole family can ride through the airport. The Micro is a Swiss brand, and the quality shows in the craftsmanship. It retails for RMB 2,999.
