Travelling from Australia on flights to Frankfurt will take at least 21 hours to complete. Such flights can be tiring, and it would be easy for us to get bored on the way.
Terms including layover and stopover are often used when we talk about flying. The definition of a stopover is very different from that given for a layover though. The latter is a short wait between flights, while the former gives us access to some good benefits.
It Breaks Up Our Journey
Flights to Frankfurt are long distance. This means we will be more likely to suffer from jet lag. If we take the time to stop somewhere else along the way, we can break up the journey to enjoy time somewhere else as well.
We Can Combine a City Break with Our Frankfurt Trip
There are many cities we could choose from that are situated between Australia and Frankfurt in Germany. Dubai is perhaps the best-known destination in the Middle East, although there are other places we could visit. We may not wish to organise a dedicated trip to Dubai but stopping over on our way to another country is a great idea.
We Can Spend One or More Nights in a Different Location
Before boarding one of the next flights to Frankfurt, we may choose to spend just one night in another city or much longer. We may wish to spend longer away from home and enjoy a week-long stopover in Dubai or elsewhere. We must consider our budget and the available time we can work with to find the best deals.
Stopovers can be the ideal way to take in more of the world. They can also make a long-haul flight far more enjoyable than it would otherwise be.
