FAQs about flights from Tullamarine (MEL) to Queenstown Intl. (ZQN)

How long is the flight from Tullamarine Airport to Queenstown Airport (ZQN-Queenstown Intl.)?

The usual flight time from Melbourne, VIC Airport (MEL-Tullamarine) to Queenstown Airport (ZQN-Queenstown Intl.) is about 3 hours and 48 minutes. If staring at the seat ahead sounds pretty boring, pack some magazines or a book to keep yourself entertained.

Tullamarine Airport to Queenstown Airport (ZQN-Queenstown Intl.) Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • An effective way to avoid jet lag after a long flight is to stay super hydrated. Drink heaps of water early on and throughout your journey. Steer clear of dehydrating and caffeinated liquids, such as alcohol, energy drinks and coffee.
  • If you intend to get some shut-eye, select a window seat toward the back of the plane, but don't get too close to the toilets or galley. The front of the plane often has facilities for families with young ones (i.e, crying, seat-kicking toddlers), so stay away from this section if possible.
  • Will it be the chicken or the fish? Neither? No probs. It's OK to bring your own food or snacks on the plane. But whatever you pack, respect your neighbours’ nostrils and be sure to wrap it well.
  • This is the perfect time to get that addictive new game app you've always wanted to try. It's perfectly acceptable to pass the time on board lost in an imaginary world of mindless amusement.
  • Experienced travellers know that an effective neck pillow is one of the most important items to take on board with you. Also bring a pair of noise-cancelling headphones and a cosy sweater and spend as much time as you can deep in dreamland.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • The aisles of a plane are no place for a fashion parade. Dress in comfortable layers and take a jumper as it can get cold on a long flight. Comfy shoes are also a wise idea.
  • Wearing a good pair of compression tights or socks is one way to help reduce the risk of DVT (deep vein thrombosis). Taking a few walks around the aisles and doing plenty of leg stretches in your seat also helps lessen your chances of developing this serious blood clot condition.

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • Taking your own little picnic on board is a terrific idea. Be sure to package your favourite foods properly so you don't end up with a mess through your carry-on or through security.

                                          So close to town. Even though room was roadside it was very quiet. Great supply of toiletries and cleaning needs. Would have preferred an 11am check out
