Your trip departing Sydney may be perfectly planned, but the thought of a long-haul flight to get to your destination is enough to make anyone inwardly groan. We’ve put together our best tips to help you prepare for a smooth and enjoyable flight.
Stay in accommodation close to the airport
Whether you live further out in Sydney’s suburbs or outside of the city entirely, staying at a Sydney airport hotel will ensure you won’t have to deal with traffic just before your flight. Stay within 10 minutes of the airport and you’ll be checking in while feeling cool, calm and collected, rather than risking a mad last-minute dash to the airport!
Load up on ebooks and podcasts
While many airlines provide movies and music, it doesn’t hurt to have a few options that suit your own taste in entertainment. Use the complimentary Wi-Fi in your suite to download a few podcasts or ebooks on your device the night before your flight. Hour five of your journey will be a lot more bearable when you’re absorbed in that latest thriller or mystery…
Unwind and relax
If you’re about to jet off on a holiday you might want to unwind before you even get to the airport. Our airport suites all include access to a modern indoor pool and spa, sauna and fitness centre so you can destress in your preferred way, whether it’s sweating it out on a treadmill or sweating it out Nordic style.
Get a good night’s sleep
Don’t sacrifice any precious sleep before you board your plane, because you’ll want to arrive at your destination well-rested. Forego cramped or lumpy airport hotel beds, and spend a few dollars more on the best Sydney airport hotel where you can wake up in a pillowtop bed and luxurious bedding.
Hydrate and moisturise
Airplanes are notoriously known for dehydrating our bodies and skin. Avoid alcohol and overly salty foods for a day before your flight and be sure to apply moisturiser before taking off. With a little preparation and the right accommodation, your long-haul flight will be over before you know it!
