Rarotonga Airport (RAR-Rarotonga Intl.) to Sydney Airport Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • Drink plenty of water both before and during your time in the air. Another top tip is to trick your body's internal clock into thinking it's already on your destination's time by changing your sleeping and eating rhythms days before you board. Even small changes can have a big impact.
  • Choose the seat you prefer. If you think you'll be stretching your legs a fair bit, grab an aisle seat. To steer clear of screaming little ones, select a seat near the back of the cabin — special facilities for young kids are often at the front of the cabin on long-haul flights.
  • Think about bringing a few nutritious snacks with you on board. If nothing on the airline menu looks particularly appetising, at least your Vegemite sandwiches will tide you over.
  • Now's the perfect time to do a little digital housekeeping. Delete (or finally read!) all those emails that have been sitting in your inbox for ages. There's nothing as satisfying as finally getting a handle on those little red notifications.
  • The longer you can sleep on the plane, the more get-up-and-go you'll have to enjoy your holiday. A comfy travel pillow can really make a huge difference to how many Zs you catch while on board.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • The aisles of your plane are no fashion runway. Slip on comfortable layers and pack a jumper as it can get a bit nippy on a long flight. Comfy shoes and socks are also a clever idea.
  • People from all walks of life, age groups and levels of health can experience DVT (deep vein thrombosis). To reduce your risks of developing this dangerous blood clot condition, move often by wandering around the aircraft and wear a pair of good quality compression socks.

Q: Can you take food on international flights?

  • Pretzels, lollies, your famous homemade muffins ... Yep, you can bring them. Nothing tops having a stockpile of goodies to help make that lengthy flight whizz by. Just be aware of liquid restrictions and leave the tuna casserole at home — it's poor etiquette to bring strong-smelling food on planes.
