FAQs about flights from Cairns Intl. (CNS) to Tullamarine (MEL)

Cairns, QLD Airport (CNS-Cairns Intl.) to Tullamarine Airport Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • The more water, the healthier you'll feel. Drinking up is a terrific way to stave off dehydration which is often caused by the dry air on board. Buy a big bottle of water just before you board and swig from it regularly.
  • Choosing a good seat will help you arrive at your next stop feeling fresh as a daisy. Every aircraft has a different seating arrangement, so do a little research first before securing the ideal spot.
  • Pack your carry-on bag with nutritious snacks. If you're looking for something to munch on in place of a greasy plane meal, you'll have a wholesome picnic at hand and have done your health a favour too.
  • Downloaded movies, games, newspapers, travel podcasts ... It's wise to take some of your own entertainment on board. You'll be pleased you did when you figure out you’ve seen all the in-flight movies already.
  • Get some sleep — it's the best way to kick-off your holiday feeling fresh and raring to go. A good travel pillow can help you get some quality rest.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • If you’re travelling from a cool to warm climate, or vice versa, choose your on board outfit carefully. Dress in layers that can be peeled off or added as needed on the plane and in the airport. Your clothes should be practical and comfortable.
  • Wear a trusty pair of compression socks and amble around the cabin now and again. Studies have found that sitting for lengthy periods can increase your risk of developing blood clots in the legs, or deep vein thrombosis, so do some exercise.
