Cape Town Airport (CPT-Cape Town Intl.) to Tullamarine Airport Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • It's important to keep yourself hydrated on long flights. The humidity inside the aircraft is low and causes moisture to evaporate quickly from your body, triggering dehydration. Keep a water bottle on you and try to drink as much and as often as possible.
  • If your plan is to pack in as much sleep as humanly possible while in the air, choose a seat by the window. Even though the front of a plane generally has less ambient noise, it's also where families with young kids are often located. In any case, don't forget to bring your noise-cancelling headphones.
  • Will you have the beef or the fish? Neither? No worries. You're allowed to take your own snacks on board. But whatever you squeeze into your carry-on, be thoughtful of your neighbours' noses and make sure it's wrapped tightly.
  • Got square eyes from staring at your screen? Don't forget to bring some alternative entertainment options. Whatever floats your boat — a good book, travel-sized board games or your journal.
  • You'll be weeping into your uncomfortable airline-provided cushion if you forget to pack a quality travel pillow. The difference a few good hours of slumber makes to the start of your trip can be huge.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • Dress for practicality and style. Opt for layered clothing made from stretchy materials, a good pair of socks and closed-in, sturdy shoes. That way, you'll be prepared for any temperature fluctuations. We know they're comfy, but leave your old sweatpants in your laundry basket.
  • Move around often during your long flight, or wear a good quality pair of compression socks. This helps avoid the condition known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) — blood clots that form due to long periods of inactivity.

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • Taking your own stash of snacks on your flight is a stellar idea. Make sure you properly package your favourite foods so they don't make a mess through your carry-on or on the security conveyor belt.
