FAQs about flights from Alice Springs (ASP) to Cairns Intl. (CNS)

Alice Springs, NT Airport (ASP) to Cairns, QLD Airport (CNS-Cairns Intl.) Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • Just add water. Beverages such as tea, coffee and alcohol can leave your skin looking puffy and dry post-flight, and more seriously, dehydrate you. Kick-off your trip feeling full of pep instead.
  • Don't leave selecting your seat till the final minute. Check in early and avoid being placed in that squashed middle seat or the ones right opposite the noisy (and often whiffy) loos.
  • Take a few nutritious goodies like apple chips and granola bars to keep those stomach growls in check. If you'd prefer something more substantial, choose a sandwich instead.
  • Sometimes you simply can't find a flick you're interested in watching, or worse — you might not have any on-board entertainment at all. Keep your mind stimulated and bring your own entertainment like a colouring book, puzzles or your travel journal.
  • Have some tools of survival in your carry-on bag. A good neck pillow and earplugs will make a world of difference during your long ride.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • From sweaty to shivery, temperatures can often fluctuate in the cabin, so wearing several layers makes sense. Also go for enclosed shoes like joggers which are roomy, just in case your feet swell.
  • For some people, blood clots can pose a serious risk during long-haul flights. You can help prevent deep vein thrombosis by walking around the cabin and donning some compression tights to keep your blood flowing. You can also stretch your legs and circle your ankles in your seat.
