FAQs about flights from Cairns Intl. (CNS) to Jackson Intl. (POM)

Cairns, QLD Airport (CNS-Cairns Intl.) to Port Moresby Airport Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • The magic answer is simply water. Cabin pressure, as well as caffeine and alcohol, has a dehydrating effect, and jet lag can be an unwelcome result.
  • If you think you'll want to stretch out those legs a fair bit during the flight, reserve an aisle seat. Don't forget though — your seatmates will have to shuffle past you to stretch their legs too. Keep that in mind if you don't like being disturbed.
  • Even though the quality of airline food has improved in leaps and bounds, it'd be a clever idea to bring along a nutritious snack or two. They'll tide you over if the in-flight meal doesn't meet your expectations.
  • Organise your "zone." Your seat will be your universe for many hours, so make it as comfortable as you can. Your phone and charger, a jumper, bottle of water and a comfy travel pillow should all go into your seat pocket before you sit down.
  • You'll regret it if you forget to bring along a cosy neck pillow. The difference a few hours of slumber makes to the beginning of your getaway can be huge.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • There's little point in wearing your best outfit during a long flight. Leave your trendy outfits and fancy shoes in your suitcase and instead go for layers which are comfortable to wear all day and night. You'll also want to slip on a pair of sensible walking shoes. You mightn't look like a runway model, but you'll be glad you put comfort over style.
  • Staying seated for a long time isn't the best for your blood circulation. Take a wander around the aisles every few hours, do a few leg and foot stretching exercises in your seat and think about wearing compression socks.
Can you take food on international flights:
  • If your best mate dropped you off at the airport with a supply of homemade scones, you can take those goodies on board with you. When you're taking food, remember to adhere to liquid restrictions and be mindful of your in-flight neighbours' nostrils.
