Travelling between the UK and Australia is no mean feat given the sheer distance separating the two countries, not to mention the opposing time zones and subsequent impact that has on one’s body clock. It’s imperative, therefore, that travellers have a restful and stress-free experience from the second they take off to the moment they touch down.
Flying long-haul more often than not requires a stop-over. We’ve seen major international hubs upping their game in recent years in a bid to win over savvy travellers who’ve become increasingly concerned with where they transfer through.
