Darwin, NT Airport (DRW-Darwin Intl.) to Christchurch Airport (CHC-Christchurch Intl.) Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • It's important to keep yourself hydrated during a long-haul flight. The humidity inside the aircraft is low and causes moisture to evaporate quickly from your body, triggering dehydration. Be sure to drink as much as you can.
  • A good seat choice can make or break a long flight. Often, it's one part luck and two parts clever planning. For your best chance at peace and quiet, take a seat toward the back of the aircraft near a window. If you plan to wander around a bit, pick an aisle or emergency exit seat so you can get in and out without disturbing your seatmates.
  • Were you aware that you're allowed to bring your own food on the plane? Grab a sub sandwich and make your seatmates green with envy when mealtime comes around.
  • Prepare your "zone." Your seat will be your universe for many long hours, so make it as comfy as you possibly can. Your phone and charger, a good magazine, plenty of water and a comfy neck pillow should be pulled out of your carry-on before settling in for the journey.
  • The impact of a super comfy neck pillow cannot be overlooked. Shop online for a style which other professional travellers rate well.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • Unless you're worried about being filmed by the paparazzi at the airport, skip the latest fashions and wear comfortable layers and enclosed, flat shoes. It often gets quite chilly in the cabin, so bring your favourite jumper and a decent pair of socks.
  • Try to move around the plane every few hours to avoid the risk of developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Wearing a quality pair of compression socks can also help ward off this serious condition, which is a blood clot that forms in a vein deep inside your body.

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • Taking your own little treasure trove of snacks on board is a wonderful idea. Be sure to package your favourite foods properly so you don't end up with a mess through your bag or on the security conveyor belt.
