Cairns, QLD Airport (CNS-Cairns Intl.) to Phuket Airport (HKT-Phuket Intl.) Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • The level of humidity inside a plane's cabin is even lower than it is in the Sahara Desert. That’s why it's normal to experience headaches or nausea during and after long-haul flights. Make sure you stay hydrated by consuming at least a full cup of water for every hour you're in the air.
  • Choose your seat. If you reckon you'll be out of your seat a fair bit, you'll want an aisle seat. To steer clear of any rowdy ankle biters, try to reserve a seat toward the rear of the plane — special facilities for young kids are often at the front of the cabin on long-haul flights.
  • If you have a love affair with eating, your stomach may not be too pleased with with the size of the portion you receive on board. Bring along plenty of snacks to fill the holes during your flight.
  • Organise your "zone." Your seat will be your universe for many hours, so make it as comfy as you possibly can. Noise-cancelling headphones, a jumper, some water and a comfy travel pillow should be at your fingertips before the seat belt sign goes on.
  • Perhaps one of the most helpful pieces of kit you can have on a lengthy flight is a great travel pillow. There's an abundance of awesome versions available, so grab something that works with your sleeping/sitting style.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • Unless you're worried about being snapped by the paparazzi in the airport, skip the fashion parade and wear comfortable layers with slightly roomy, flat shoes. It can get quite chilly in the cabin, so bring a warm sweater and a decent pair of socks.
  • Wearing a good pair of compression tights or socks is a proven way to help reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Moving around the cabin and doing plenty of leg stretches in your seat also helps lessen your chances of developing this blood clot condition.

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • Taking your own little picnic on board is a fantastic idea. Be sure to package your favourite foods properly so you don't end up with a mess through your bag or through security.

                                      I liked the friendliness of the staff and how well appointed rooms were. I did not like condition of main pool, needs renovating as tiles on bottom sharp and very slippery. Needed ironing board and iron in room

                                        Two kids aged 5 and 7 loved it, as did us parents. 3 awesome, big waterslides and 7 pools with different atmospheres. Something for everyone.
