FAQs about flights from Cairns Intl. (CNS) to Adelaide (ADL)

Cairns, QLD Airport (CNS-Cairns Intl.) to Adelaide, SA Airport (ADL) Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • Dehydration is sometimes one of the main side effects of a long flight. Kick that to the curb by drinking water regularly.
  • Whether you prefer a window, an aisle or an exit seat, picking the right spot will have a huge impact on your in-flight experience. Think about what's important to you, like a good window view or being able to wander around.
  • Skip the greasy plane food. Instead, fill your hand luggage with healthy snacks like nuts and grain crackers.
  • Bring a good novel and noise-cancelling earphones. If you've watched all the in-flight movies already, why not do some reading or relax to a playlist of your favourite music?
  • Purchase a good quality neck pillow if you'd like to enjoy a little shut-eye. From packable memory foam varieties to others that resemble a scarf, there are loads of options to pick from.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • Wear clothes that you can freely move in. Flowy shirts and wide-leg pants are some great options. Opt for a stretchy, casual sneaker or trainer so you can remove them easily while going through security.
  • Exercise regularly during the flight. No, we don't mean sit-ups, but things like leg lifts, foot flexes or a walk down the aisle. These activities and wearing compression socks can prevent swelling and the development of dangerous blood clots by improving your circulation.
