As you can see, a ticket contains a lot of essential information, and is a crucial part of travel – so let’s learn how to draw our very own!

Begin by taking a black pen and a ruler to draw a line around an inch (2.5 cm) from the top of your page, finishing around half an inch (1.3 cm) from either end. The line should slope down every so slightly.

Next, take the black pen and ruler to draw another, parallel line at the bottom of the page, as well as two vertical lines on either side, to form a rectangle shape – do not connect the corners for the moment.

Gently connect the corners of your rectangle with four curved lines, giving you a soft-edged rectangular shape taking up most of the page.

Then, use your ruler to draw a dashed line downwards around two thirds of the way across your page.

Write the phrase “BOARDING PASS” in crisp, clear letters at the top of the rectangle – once to the left of the dashed line, and again just to the right.

Now, use your ruler to draw a series of short, horizontal lines to the left of the dashed line, below the “BOARDING PASS” text. This should resemble a barcode; start with a long, thin rectangle, followed by a few lines immediately below this, and then five lines, evenly spaced, below this, following with the same rectangle-line combo at the bottom.

Then, add a small, airplane shape to the top left hand corner of the pass, and add slight, horizontal lines to the top and bottom of this – make the top lines slightly shorter than the bottom to give an indication of speed.

Now it is time to fill in your details – add the “Passenger Name” and your name below, as well as the “From”, “To”, “Carrier”, “Date” and “Time”, as well as details of your flight, including Flight Number, Seat, Gate and Boarding time.

Interesting Facts About Airplane Tickets

Grabbing your airplane ticket is all part of that exciting ritual: you head to the airport, check your luggage, mooch around duty-free trying tester perfumes, and finally, wait to board your flight, ticket and passport clutched tightly in your hands – your number one essential to get you to your dream destination.

Tickets contain a lot of essential information, and so are valuable documents – as well as the name of the passenger and the issuing airline, there will also be a unique ticket number, which includes the airlines three-digit code as the first three components of the number – this helps to ensure safety and security.

In addition, your ticket will display the cities between which the ticket is valid for travel as well as the specific flight that the ticket is valid for – although some tickets are referred to as “open”, this is far less common; most will have a strict “to” and “from” travel plan.

The date of travel will also be included, and attempting to use the ticket on a different date, airline or route will usually result in you being denied travel, or required to pay a sum or small fee to change details, or even purchase a different, valid ticket, depending on the circumstances.

It is interesting to note that your ticket will generally gives times in local time zones, depending on where the plane will be at that given moment – this can result in some amusingly short “flight times” depending on the time zone you are visiting!
