Tips and advice to survive long haul flights of ten or more hours.
Travelling to Australia is fun and exciting, but definitely not easy. In this episode of TIPS, Guie Hartney shares some tips and advice to survive long haul flights of ten or more hours when coming to Australia.
Students and employees moving to Australia will benefit from getting a good night’s sleep before the flight. It doesn’t matter what time your flight is; rest up and prepare your body for hours of travel. Hydrating is also important. Drink plenty of water before and during the flight. You can also avoid dehydrating by minimising (or completely skipping) both caffeine and alcohol.
Your mindset is also important. To survive long haul flights of ten or more hours when coming to Australia, pretend that your timezone is already the same as your destination city. Resting during the flight is important to achieve this. The best way to get some rest is to limit your screen time on the plane.
Another great tip to survive long haul flights of ten or more hours when coming to Australia is to choose an aisle seat. Though less scenic, this position is more convenient. Reserving a seat by the plane’s wings, away from the bathroom and service area, will also limit disturbances and distractions when you’re trying to sleep. Noise-cancelling headphones are also a must. It’s best to have your own pair during long haul flights of ten or more hours when coming to Australia. This way, you can focus on your own movie or music during the flight.
Finally, don’t forget to wear clothes in layers. This will help you regulate your body temperature during the flight. The temperature in each flight can be quite unpredictable and unstable, so its best to bring a light jacket, a blanket, a thicker jacket, and socks. Clothing items that can be placed or removed easily will help you keep comfortable throughout the flight.
We hope these tips and advice to survive long haul flights of ten or more hours when coming to Australia have been helpful for you. Have a safe trip and enjoy!
