A little about why I'm here, my background, and why technology.
If you are a student and would like to schedule a flight to Adelaide and Sydney in time for your internship or studies, you have to know about the major time differences between the two cities. Although Sydney is 3 hours ahead of Adelaide, the flights to Adelaide are more favourable as it is less two hours away from Sydney. In case of a direct flight, the east coast airports in Sydney and Brisbane are more than three hours away from Adelaide by road. By taking an indirect flight, the east coast airports will be more than four hours away from Adelaide, thus saving you the time and the money of making trips during the peak business hours. In addition, there is always the option of flying to Adelaide and taking a day trip to Sydney, which will give you more flexibility on your schedule.
However, despite the huge time difference between the two cities, these are the major factors that will affect you when choosing your airfares. When you are planning to travel during the business hours, it is a good idea to choose an indirect flight. It is highly recommended that you compare prices between several airlines prior to traveling, especially if you are residing in Australia and are eligible for credit cards that feature discounts with different airlines. In addition, you must ensure that you contact your student credit card provider to inquire about flight rates when you are en route.
If you are flying to Adelaide during the night, the time can greatly impact the price of your ticket. As a result, it is strongly recommended that you arrive early to book flights and to make sure that you are at the airport in time to avoid any delays. If you are flying at a later time than most people do, you may still have the option of changing your flight and choosing another destination.
If you are traveling with children, there are certain rules and regulations regarding children on board. The kids will be allowed to drink alcohol. You may also be restricted from taking them to the bathroom. There are certain times when a child cannot be stowed beneath their seat. However, most airlines consider stowing a child to be a safe activity.
The weather plays a major role in determining the price of flights and the availability of seats on a flight. The colder it gets, the less likely it is that there will be sufficient demand for flights. In addition, there will be a lower likelihood of flights being booked because of low demand. When the temperature is high enough for clouds to billow and the air is warm enough to humidify it, there is usually no problem with air travel.
Adelaide, like many cities in South Australia, experiences an off season. The months of January to March are considered to be "off season" by the airlines. This is because the summer months are just starting to pick up and people are not as keen on getting into their cars and driving to work as they once were. In addition, most people do not travel as far south as Adelaide in the winter months. This makes it a buyer's market and flights and coach accommodations are relatively easy to find.
