Darwin, NT Airport (DRW-Darwin Intl.) to Townsville, QLD Airport (TSV) Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • Drink loads of water. A great way to monitor your intake is to ensure your bottle has been replenished a couple of times by the time you have to stow your tray table.
  • Pick your own seat; if you're going to be roaming around, bag an aisle seat. To steer clear of screaming kids, head toward the rear of the plane.
  • Resist the temptation of stockpiling sugary treats at the airport and fill your carry-on with nutritious goodies from home. We're talking things like sandwiches and yoghurt. You'll save cash and feel a whole lot better after your flight.
  • Do those little things you've been meaning to do for ages. Use those long hours to delete old contacts from your phone, or those embarrassing selfies from your gallery. You can also finally read those hundreds of emails you've been putting off.
  • Pack a decent travel pillow, earplugs and a fluffy eye mask. They'll help you snooze and block out all the commotion happening around you.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • There's no reason you can't be chic and comfy all at once. Pull on some casual pants (and we don't mean jammies or baggy sweats) and pair them with a loose shirt and flat, enclosed shoes. Drape over a cosy knit for warmth on the aircraft.
  • Even if you're in the midst of a movie marathon, don't stay confined to your seat the entire flight. Stand up and pace the aisle, or at least put on some compression socks. These things will encourage blood circulation and help prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

                                        Convenient location. People at Reception very helpful. We had the Executive Family Suite, good value for the money. Will stay there again.
