What are Red-Eye Flights?

Red eye flights are commercial flights that depart late at night and arrive early in the morning of the next day. The term 'red eye' comes from when passengers feel restless and tired after travelling late at night or early in the morning, resulting in red eyes. These types of flights are usually used by those travelling for business that don't want to miss out on a day of work or holiday-goers who want to make the most of their trip and avoid travelling during the day.

Red-Eye Flights Tips

To make sure you feel well-rested and energised after your red eye flights, you'll want to follow our tips below so you can make the most out of your trip, whether you're travelling for business or leisure.

Comfortable Clothing

Looking smart for that important business meeting is essential, but you won't be able to sleep comfortably if you're planning on sleeping in your suit. We recommend leaving the smart wear in your suitcase and instead wearing loose, comfortable clothing such as a hoodie, t-shirt, sweatpants or shorts. Wearing soft, cotton socks will also help you fall asleep faster and improve blood circulation.


To help you fall asleep faster, there's a few helpful accessories you can bring onboard with you including a sleep mask and a travel pillow. A warm blanket will also come in handy as you'll want to keep warm during your flight, especially if the cabin gets a bit chilly.


If you're planning on booking an aisle seat or the middle seat, you'll risk being woken up by other passengers in the same row who may want to use the flight facilities. To avoid passengers squeezing past you, we suggest booking a window seat so you can sleep uninterrupted. An extra bonus is you'll be able to control the window shutters so you can avoid being woken up by the bright sunrise in the morning.

Eat Light

A light meal before your red eye flight means you won't be hungry before falling asleep and your stomach will also be able to settle quickly as opposed to eating a large meal - try to avoid fatty or oily food wherever possible.


Lastly, it's good to get the blood pumping before you go to sleep - take a quick walk around the cabin to stretch your legs and you'll be asleep in no time.
