Tullamarine Airport to Colombo Airport (CMB-Bandaranaike Intl.) Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • According to scientists who know their stuff, you should consume a cup of water every hour you are in the air to keep your body hydrated. This can also help you feel less exhausted when you finally arrive.
  • Educate yourself about the layout of your aircraft online and book in your seat ASAP. Everyone has different priorities when flying — be it snoozing away, catching up on work or enjoying hours-on-end of uninterrupted computer games. It's definitely worth taking a minute to find your ideal seat.
  • Even though the quality of airline food has made giant strides in recent years, it'd be a wise idea to bring along a snack or two. They'll stop your stomach from making a racket if the in-flight meal doesn't float your boat.
  • Draw up a master plan for after you touch down. Having a well-thought-out itinerary can help you get the most out of your adventures.
  • If there's one item you shouldn't scrimp on before a long flight, it's a comfortable travel pillow. Reach your destination with a good sleep behind you and you’ll be able to quickly get into adventurer mode.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • You'll want to wear plenty of loose layers in breathable materials. Slip on shoes which are easy to get on and off to make security checks a breeze.
  • Even healthy young travellers can develop deep vein thrombosis, or DVT. Don't ignore the dangers and do what you can to avoid this serious blood clot condition during your flight. Wander around the cabin as often as you can, stretch your legs and feet in your seat and and think about wearing compression socks or tights.

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • Make those Vegemite sandwiches because you're permitted to bring your own food on your flight. Give some thought to liquid restrictions and the comfort of other passengers before you decide what to bring. Also remember that certain foods may not be allowed in your arrival country, so it's best to eat up during your flight.
