Red-Eye Flights Tips

No one wants to be restless or uncomfortable when arriving at their destination after a red eye flight. Follow our helpful tips below on how to be as comfortable as possible and get plenty of sleep on your overnight flight so you can arrive at your destination feeling rejuvenated and ready to tackle the day.

Comfortable Clothing

Looking smart for your business meeting is essential, but when it comes to flying overnight, you won't want to sleep in your business wear. Leave the suits in the suitcase and instead consider wearing a t-shirt, hoodie, sweatpants or shorts on your flight. Any loose, soft clothing that you feel most comfortable in will make you fall asleep in no time.


To get to sleep quicker, we recommend taking a sleep mask and travel pillow with you to help you fall asleep faster. The cabin can often get chilly too so make sure to bring a warm blanket with you if the airline doesn't offer one onboard.


Interrupted sleep is the last thing you need, especially if you need to have enough energy for when you arrive at your destination in the morning. To avoid being woken up, try and choose a window seat on your red eye flight - this reduces the risk of other passengers potentially waking you up if they need to get past you. Additionally, you'll have control over the window shutters meaning you won't be woken up by the bright sunrise.
