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

Cairns, QLD Airport (CNS-Cairns Intl.) to Alice Springs, NT Airport (ASP) Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • Up your water intake to keep your body hydrated. It'll help to counteract the dry cabin air and keep you from feeling weary after you land.
  • Your seat will be your own little world for many hours, so put some thought into where you sit. An aisle seat is perfect for flyers who want to move about the cabin. If you want to stay away from crying kiddies, sit yourself near the back.
  • If you don't enjoy that carb-heavy plane food or just want to nibble on something out of boredom, put some healthy snacks in your bag. Foods like fruit and a turkey wrap will stop your stomach grumbling.
  • Sometimes you just can’t find a film that interests you, or worse — your plane might not have in-flight entertainment at all. Keep yourself amused and bring your own entertainment like a colouring book, Sudoku puzzles or your journal.
  • It's difficult to get some shut-eye during a long flight, but a comfortable travel pillow can make it easier. Pack one that’s both comfortable and lightweight.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • As sharp as they may be, leave your leather trousers for the nightclub. Don't wear anything constricting on the plane and choose light and loose pieces in breathable fabrics.
  • Take advantage of those times when the seat belt light has been turned off and walk around the aisle. Stretching your legs will keep your blood flowing and lower the risks of a potentially-deadly blood clot condition known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT). You can also wear a pair of compression socks or tights.

                                          My only "complaint" if you can call it that is there was no easy chair, having a back that is a bit messed up, an easy chair would have made my stay perfect...…..most enjoyable. Thanks
