Port Moresby Airport to Cairns, QLD Airport (CNS-Cairns Intl.) Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • Remember to stay hydrated during a long-haul flight. The humidity inside the cabin is low and causes moisture to evaporate quickly from your body, leading to dehydration. Remind yourself to drink as much as you can.
  • Unfortunately, there's no one-shoe-fits-all solution when it comes to determining the right seat for a long flight. Decide whether you want to sleep through the entire flight or you'd prefer to stretch out those legs. Check online for expert tips about the best seat for you on your particular plane.
  • Would you like the beef or the chicken? None of the above? It's all good. You can bring your own snacks on board. But whatever you pack, be considerate of your neighbours’ nostrils and make sure it's packed well.
  • Grab your guidebook and spend your time on board learning as much as possible about where you're on your way to. A fulfilling holiday starts with having an idea about the area's history, culture and traditions.
  • If you’d prefer not to start your getaway feeling dog-tired, treat yourself to the best travel pillow you can find. Striding through arrivals feeling refreshed is the goal.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • Dress like an onion. What's that mean? Layers. Lots of them. That way you'll be equipped for any temperature variations during your flight as well as at your destination.
  • Wander around a bit during your long flight, or at least wear a good quality pair of compression socks. This will help you avoid the dangerous condition known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) — blood clots that can form in the body's deep veins due to long periods of inactivity.

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • Taking food items on board is allowed. Be mindful of your fellow passengers by choosing items that don't have a strong smell. Dry snacks are a good idea due to the restriction on liquids and gels. Remember to check your destination's rules before you take any of your leftovers off the plane and into the country.

                                          We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom unit with a king size bed. A little out dated but good for us .the grounds and gardens were amazing.
