FAQs about flights from Cairns Intl. (CNS) to Mackay (MKY)

Cairns, QLD Airport (CNS-Cairns Intl.) to Mackay, QLD Airport (MKY) Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • Stay hydrated — this is a smart way to avoid feeling sluggish when you arrive.
  • If you'd love to sleep through the whole trip, book a window seat. If you're likely to get up and move around frequently, an aisle seat has plenty of appeal. Got lovely, long pins? Try to grab an emergency exit seat.
  • Get snacking. But avoid your favourite chips as they can cause bloating. Some yummy and healthy options to bring on board are fresh fruits, walnuts and hummus packs.
  • Music, language apps, magazines, travel podcasts ... It's wise to take some of your own entertainment on the plane. You'll be pleased you did when you work out you've watched all the in-flight flicks already.
  • It's difficult to snooze during a long flight, but a good quality travel pillow can make a real difference. Pack one that’s both comfortable and compact.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • If you're flying from a cool to warm climate, or vice versa, think carefully about what you'll wear on board. Wear layers that can be removed or added as needed on the aircraft and in the airport. Your outfit should be practical and comfortable.
  • If you're flying for longer than four hours, consider donning some compression socks. They can help to improve blood flow and relieve swelling.
