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

How to survive a long flight:

  • An effective method of escaping jet lag after a long-haul flight is to stay super hydrated. Drink heaps of water early on and throughout your journey. Avoid dehydrating and caffeinated beverages, such as coffee and alcohol.
  • Choose your seat as soon as possible. All the best seats are usually reserved early, so don't leave your decision until the last minute.
  • Although airline food has improved in leaps and bounds, it'd be a clever idea to bring along a snack or two. They'll keep your belly from rumbling if the food on board doesn't meet your expectations.
  • Here's your chance to do a bit of digital housekeeping. Clear out (or finally read!) those emails that have been sitting in your inbox since forever. There's nothing like getting on top of those annoying red notifications.
  • A proper travel pillow can make all the difference to the amount of sleep you manage while in the air. Look online now for a popular style so that you can begin your getaway feeling refreshed.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • It's a good idea to wear comfortable, loose layers in natural materials. Opt for shoes which are easy to remove so you can get through security with fewer hassles.
  • It's not just your dear old nan or the unfit passenger three rows down who are susceptible to getting blood clots on long flights. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a serious condition that can affect all ages and fitness levels. Think about wearing compression tights or socks and do leg and feet exercises in your seat to keep your blood circulating.

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • In short, yes. Having a cache of tasty snacks can really help make a long journey more enjoyable. Don't forget that the liquid rule applies to foodstuffs in gel-form as well.
