Alice Springs, NT Airport (ASP) to Cairns, QLD Airport (CNS-Cairns Intl.) Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • Step up your H2O intake to stay happy and hydrated. It'll help you deal with the dry plane air and keep you from feeling sluggish and exhausted when you arrive.
  • Pick the seat you want; if you're likely to be traipsing around, reserve an aisle seat. To escape screaming little ones, select a seat near the back of the plane.
  • Ditch the high salt content airline food. Instead, fill up your carry-on with some healthy snacks like chopped fruit and veggies.
  • Have your own entertainment like magazines and a book. If you're not into the in-flight movies, you'll have some other options to last you through the trip.
  • The benefits of a comfy neck pillow cannot be underestimated. Look around for a style that other experienced travellers rate highly.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • Natural materials are a good idea to wear. Bring a warm jacket and wear a pair of closed-in shoes. That way, you'll be warm and comfy throughout the entire flight.
  • Pull on a trusty pair of compression socks and amble around the cabin from time to time. Studies have discovered that sitting for extended periods can raise your risk of developing blood clots in the legs, or deep vein thrombosis (DVT), so move that body.

                                          We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom unit with a king size bed. A little out dated but good for us .the grounds and gardens were amazing.
