How long is the flight from Auckland Airport (AKL-Auckland Intl.) to Tullamarine Airport?

The usual flight time from Auckland to Melbourne is about 4 hours and 44 minutes. If staring at the seat in front of you the entire time sounds dull, pack a couple of magazines to keep yourself busy.

What airlines fly direct from Auckland Airport (AKL-Auckland Intl.) to Tullamarine Airport?

The very thought of travelling from Auckland to Melbourne is exciting enough. But there's more good news. A range of airlines sell direct flights, including Qantas and Air New Zealand. You'll be ordering your third round from your hotel lobby bar before you know it.

How many flights are there from Auckland Airport (AKL-Auckland Intl.) to Tullamarine Airport?

Auckland Airport (AKL-Auckland Intl.) to Tullamarine Airport Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • Drink heaps of water before and during your flight. Another smart idea is to set your internal clock to your destination's time by modifying your eating and sleeping patterns several days before you depart. Even small modifications can have a noticeable impact.
  • If you have a tight connecting flight (or you're simply itching to get your holiday started), pick a seat at the pointy end of the cabin. Keep in mind though, this area is usually kitted out for families with young kids, and there's a chance you might get seated near a crying baby. Bring earplugs.
  • Would you like the beef or the chicken? Neither? No sweat. You can take your own food or snacks on board. But whatever you pack, respect your neighbours’ nostrils and be sure to wrap it tightly.
  • Compose a master plan for your arrival. Having a well-thought-out itinerary can really help you make the most of your holiday experience.
  • If there's one travel accessory you shouldn't skimp on before a long flight, it's an effective travel pillow. Arrive at your destination with a good sleep behind you and it'll be easy to quickly get into explorer mode.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • Unless you're worried about being chased by the paparazzi around the airport, skip the fashion parade and wear comfortable layers and enclosed, flat shoes. It can get quite chilly in the cabin, so bring a warm sweater and socks.
  • Even healthy, young and fit travellers can develop deep vein thrombosis, or DVT. Don't ignore the risks and do what you can to prevent this serious blood clot condition during your flight. Walk around the cabin as much as you can, keep stretching your feet and legs while seated and and think about wearing compression tights or socks.
Can you take food on international flights:
  • Food that is not in a liquid or gel form may be taken on board the plane. Along with the rest of your belongings, your packed lunch will also take a journey through the X-ray machine. Pack it propertly so your homemade sanger doesn't end up strewn across the conveyor belt.

                                        Great staff and beautiful hotel. Really happy with our stay. We would like to stay again in the future. A great location too. The flagstaff gardens were beautiful and the kids had a great time there.
