The FAA released the following safety guidelines:

  • Pay attention to the flight attendant's safety briefing.
  • Be sure to also read the safety briefing cards that are provided on flights.
  • Always use your seat belt when you are seated.
  • If your child weighs less than 40 lbs. make sure they are using an approved child-safety seat.
  • Follow your airline's carry-on bag restrictions to prevent in-flight injuries.
  • Turn off all personal electronic devices when it is advised to do so.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray Lahood said everyone can take these tips into consideration to ensure a safe flight.

"We operate the safest transportation system in the world," said Lahood. "But we can all take some simple steps to keep ourselves and our loved ones even safer this holiday season."

Travelers can find more information about passenger safety on the FAA website.
