Before you travel by air for vacation or perhaps to visit a friend, it might be wise to review some of the basic words related to air travel. Firstly, the place you leave from:
I'm off to the airport! -Have a nice trip.

Then the vehicle that you use to travel with:
In an airplane, there's always a front exit and sometimes there's a rear exit

Then the action you carry out on the airplane:
But most of us can't just fly off to faraway places. Well, no flying is necessary when you've got Yabla.

The verb "to fly," can mean to travel by airplane, and though you may not need to fly to learn a foreign language, it helps sometimes getting to you destination!
As we prepare for take-off, please relax and enjoy the flight.

"Take-off" is when the airplane leaves the ground and takes to the air. In English, you say you are "catching a flight" to mean you are going to travel on an airplane.
Please power off all electronic devices during takeoff and landing.

"Landing" is, of course, the opposite of "takeoff" (note too that "take-off" may be spelled with or without a hyphen). "Electronic devices" include cellular phones, tablets, and laptop computers.
