                                Canberra, ACT Airport (CBR-Canberra Intl.) to Colombo Airport (CMB-Bandaranaike Intl.) Flying Tips

                                How to survive a long flight:

                                • Drink lots of water — this is the easiest way to avoid feeling frazzled following your flight.
                                • If you know you'll want to move around a lot during the flight, choose an aisle seat. Remember though — your seatmates will have to get past you to get to the loo. Keep that in mind if you're keen on having an uninterrupted sleep.
                                • There's something about flying that makes chips, sweets and chocolate bars seem perfectly normal to eat by the bucket load. If the food on board doesn't float your boat, take command and pack some snacks you really like. Calories don't count when you're on holidays, right?
                                • There's no better time to get stuck into that game app you've always wanted to try. It's A-OK to pass the long hours on board lost in a fantasy bubble of mindless distraction.
                                • How well you sleep on board usually depends on how comfortable you can get. A proper neck pillow, earplugs and a warm blanket will all go a long way in helping you drift off to la-la land.

                                What to wear on a long flight:

                                • There's no point in wearing your best outfit during a long-haul flight. Leave your snazzy outfits and fancy shoes in your checked luggage and instead dress in layers which are comfortable to wear while you nap. You'll also want to pull on a pair of sensible walking shoes. Sure, you'll be no Miranda Kerr, but you'll be glad you put comfort over style.
                                • Even healthy young travellers can develop deep vein thrombosis, or DVT. Don’t turn a blind eye to the risks and do what you can to avoid this serious condition during your flight. Wander around the cabin as often as you can, perform leg, ankle and feet exercises in your seat and and think about wearing compression tights or socks.

                                Q: Can you take food on international flights?

                                • Get cracking on those Vegemite sangers because you're permitted to bring your own food on the plane. Be mindful of liquid restrictions and the comfort of other passengers before you decide what to pack. Also remember that certain foodstuffs may be banned from your arrival country, so it's a good idea to eat up during the flight.
