Red-Eye Flights Tips

No passenger wants to feel exhausted and restless after getting no sleep on a red eye flight. Our tips below can help you avoid this so you can make the most out of your red eye flight and feel energised once you've landed at your destination.

Comfortable Clothing

If you're travelling for business, you might want to keep your suit packed away in your suitcase and instead consider wearing loose, comfortable clothing that will help you get to sleep quicker - this can include a hoodie, t-shirt, sweatpants or shorts.


You'll get to sleep in no time if you bring a few helpful accessories with you such as a sleep mask and a travel pillow. A warm blanket is also recommended as sometimes the cabin of the aircraft can get quite chilly, especially on night flights.


If you don't want to be interrupted during your sleep, it's best to book a window seat instead of an aisle seat as this will reduce the chances of other passengers having to wake you up if they need to squeeze past you. You'll also have control over the window shutters so you can block out the bright sunlight in the morning.

Eat Light

It's a common myth that eating a large meal will help you fall asleep faster - it actually does the complete opposite. If you eat a light meal that isn't fatty or oily, your stomach will be able to settle easily before flying.
