Tullamarine Airport to Townsville, QLD Airport (TSV) Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • Ditch the caffeine and alcohol for some pure water. It'll help to prevent dehydration and things like dizziness too.
  • Your seat will be your own little world for quite a few hours, so carefully pick where you sit. An aisle seat is ideal for those who like to move about the cabin. If you want to stay away from seat-kicking kiddies, grab a spot near the back.
  • Eating healthy while travelling isn't easy. And when you do spot something nourishing at the airport it's likely to cost a packet. Take your own healthy goodies from your kitchen cupboard and do your waistline and wallet a favour.
  • Use that time in the sky to simply relax. Read your favourite mag, listen to a new playlist or pull out your notebook and start planning your adventures.
  • The benefits of using a comfortable neck pillow shouldn't be underestimated. Shop around for a style that other experienced travellers recommend.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • Natural fabrics are ideal to wear. Pack your favourite sweater and wear a pair of flat, enclosed shoes. That way, you'll be warm and snug throughout the whole flight.
  • Take advantage of those times when the seat belt sign is off and amble down the aisle. Stretching your legs will improve your circulation and lessen the risks of a serious blood clot condition known as deep vein thrombosis. You can also pull on a pair of compression socks or tights.
