Mackay, QLD Airport (MKY) to Sydney Airport Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • Just say no to that double airport espresso or even that tempting tinnie. Water is the way to go. If you're not into plain old H2O, consider adding some herbs or chopped citrus fruits to change up the taste (or simply buy some flavoured water).
  • Get your seating arrangements sorted out. It's simple — secure an aisle seat for easy movement, a seat at the back to avoid any rampaging kids or a window seat if you can't resist a view.
  • Try to resist the temptation of stockpiling sugary treats at the airport and take some healthy nibblies from home. Think foods like protein bars and yoghurt. You'll save your pennies and feel a whole lot better after your flight.
  • Open your travel diary and plan your adventures. Note down your budget, the places you want to go and how you'll travel there.
  • Pack a comfy neck pillow, earplugs and an eye mask. They'll help you squeeze in some shut-eye and block out all the distractions happening around you.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • Say yes to loose pants and no to tight jeans. Layer up in items like a tank top, cardigan and jacket so you're prepared for any temperature variations.
  • Take advantage of those times when the seat belt light is off and wander around the cabin. Stretching your legs will encourage blood circulation and help prevent a serious blood clot condition known as deep vein thrombosis. You can also put on a pair of compression socks or tights.
