Sydney Airport to Townsville, QLD Airport (TSV) Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • Step away from tea, coffee and even that fancy craft beer. Water should be your drink of choice. If you're not keen on plain old H2O, consider adding a few herbs and berries to jazz up the taste (or just buy some flavoured water).
  • Get your seating arrangements sorted out. It's simple — secure an aisle seat for more legroom, a seat at the back to avoid screaming kiddies or a window seat if you want to stare into the clouds.
  • Try to avoid bingeing on fatty or sugary foods during your flight. If you tend to get hungry quick, pack some healthy nibblies such as fresh fruit and hummus packs.
  • Use that time in the sky to relax and unwind. Get stuck into a book, listen to a guided meditation or pull out your travel diary and start jotting down cool adventure ideas.
  • The benefits of using a good neck pillow shouldn't be underestimated. Look around for designs that other seasoned flyers recommend.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • It's a good idea to layer up so you're ready for temperature changes. Pick clothes that are breathable and light such as cotton and linen, and slip on closed-in, mostly flat shoes.
  • Invest in a pair of compression socks and move about the cabin once in a while. Studies have shown that sitting for long periods can increase your risk of developing blood clots in the legs, or deep vein thrombosis, so do some exercise.
