FAQs about flights from to

How long is the flight from Darwin, NT Airport (DRW-Darwin Intl.) to Sydney Airport?

You'll have approximately 4 hours and 59 minutes to sit around and twiddle your thumbs on board your flight from Darwin to Sydney. It's the perfect time to snatch forty winks, finish your novel or binge-watch the latest heart-stopping series.

What airlines fly direct from Darwin, NT Airport (DRW-Darwin Intl.) to Sydney Airport?

You can avoid the stress of racing through an unfamiliar airport to make your connecting flight when heading from Darwin to Sydney. A few airlines have direct flights. Suss out Qantas and Virgin Australia for starters.

How many flights are there from Darwin, NT Airport (DRW-Darwin Intl.) to Sydney Airport?

Hear that? It's the awesome sound of your plane zooming off to Sydney. All you have to do is choose a seat on one of the 6 daily flights from Darwin, NT Airport (DRW-Darwin Intl.) to Sydney, NSW Airport (SYD-Kingsford Smith Intl.).

Darwin, NT Airport (DRW-Darwin Intl.) to Sydney Airport Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • Turn down that double airport espresso and even those irresistible little bottles of wine. Water should be your primary beverage. If you're not keen on plain old H2O, consider adding a few mint leaves and berries to change up the taste (or simply buy some flavoured water).
  • Choose the right seat for you. If you've got long legs, an exit row seat has a little more legroom (but isn't ideal for couples travelling with kids). If you want a bit of shut-eye, choose a seat by the window if you don't want to deal with the drink cart hitting your elbow.
  • Ditch the processed airplane food. Instead, fill up your carry-on with some healthy snacks like sandwiches or salad.
  • Bring a decent novel and noise-cancelling headphones. If you've seen all the in-flight shows already, why not do some easy reading or listen to new music?
  • Sleep — it's the best way to kick-start your well-deserved break feeling invigorated and ready to go. A comfy neck pillow will help you get some decent kip.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • You'll want to dress in layers so you're prepared for any changes in temperature. Go for clothes that are light and breathable like linen and cotton, and slip on enclosed, flat shoes.
  • Even if you’re in the middle of a movie marathon, don’t stay strapped to your seat the whole flight. Stand up and pace the aisle, or at least invest in some compression tights. These things will boost your blood circulation and help prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
