FAQs about flights from Rockhampton (ROK) to Cairns Intl. (CNS)

Rockhampton, QLD Airport (ROK) to Cairns, QLD Airport (CNS-Cairns Intl.) Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • The more water, the fitter you'll feel. Drinking up is the best way to avoid dehydration which is often caused by low humidity levels inside the cabin. Bring that water bottle and sip from it often.
  • Your seat will be your whole world for many hours, so think carefully about where you sit. An aisle seat is ideal for those who love to roam around. If you're eager to stay away from seat-kicking toddlers, claim a spot near the back.
  • Try to resist the temptation of buying unhealthy food at the airport and fill your bag with healthy nibbles from home. We're talking things like chopped fruit and veggies. You'll save moolah and feel a whole lot better after your flight.
  • Load your laptop with your favourite movies, playlists and books in case you get bored of the in-flight entertainment options. A pair of noise-cancelling earphones will come in handy too.
  • Get some sleep — it's the best way to start your holiday feeling relaxed and ready to go. A good neck pillow can help you get some proper rest.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • As trendy as they may be, leave your leather slacks for the dance floor. Don't wear anything too restrictive on the plane and opt for loose-fitting pieces in breathable materials.
  • Even if you're in the midst of a movie marathon, don’t stay strapped to your seat the entire trip. Get up and walk around the cabin, or at least wear some some compression socks. These things will improve your blood circulation and reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
