How to Survive a Flight to Australia
When your work takes you to Australia, you’re in for the longest flight of your life, which is why Bravofly’s letting you know how to survive a flight to Australia.
It’s Only a Matter of Time
Australia is one of the most unique, breathtaking countries in the world; should you receive the opportunity to visit it on a business trip, you should take it. And considering the rising power of the land down under’s economy – especially that of global financial hub Sydney- it’s only a matter of time before you are asked to represent your firm on the other side of the world.
However, there is one major drawback to visiting our most southerly nation; you have to take a very long, long haul flight. To be specific, the average flight to Australia is between 20 and 22 hours, with layovers in one of more countries along the way i.e. Dubai, Singapore etc.
Bravofly’s Guide to Surviving an Extreme Long Haul Flight
Essentially, you are in for the long haul flight to end all long haul flights, and here are a few tips from Bravofly on how you can survive 20-22 hours on a plane:
- Get Some Sleep: You are not iron man, you won’t survive the jet lag that comes when you touch down on Australian soil if you don’t get some sleep.
- Guard Your Blanket and Pillow with Your Life: Traditionally, flights often offer blankets and pillows on a trip down under. Guard them with your life. Your equally as frustrated neighbour won’t hesitate to steal them from you if they should need to do so.
- Don’t Torture Yourself: Should your flight come with a map showing the flight’s progress, don’t watch it, it’ll only depress you.
- Make As Much Space As Possible: You are in very confined space for a very long time. Make space and store everything that isn’t essential away in the overhead bin to avoid cabin fever.
- Pack Sustenance: Airplane food is never filling, which is why you need to pack some form of sustenance to simply keep up the strength you need to endure 20-22 hours in a confined space.
- Take Advantage of the Layover: Take the opportunity to eat, drink, stretch your legs and perform any other essential tasks when you reach a layover. This break from airplane travel is your opportunity to keep yourself sane; take it!
If you’re lucky enough to receive the chance to represent your firm down under, you are in for the trip of a lifetime, but you have to endure 20-22 hours on a plane to get there. Don’t let that steal your chance to fully enjoy everything the unique land of Australia has to offer!
