Why should you should consider Business or Corporate Air Charter

The distance to Moorabbin Airport from the city is a little further than say Essendon Airport but the ease of access and ease of departure for business, private or corporate air charter more than makes up for this in time and money to get you airborne. Your vehicle can be parked right outside the departure lounge and the aircraft is no more than 30 metres away. Parking is also available in open car parks on the aerodrome or we can arrange a covered “car kennel”  valet service nearby on the airport.

What is an Elite Air Charter?

Maybe you want a more elite service offering exclusivity, comfort and speed. The Super King Air aircraft is perfect for this. In our Elite Airt Charter, we can fly you from Moorabbin to Sydney in 1 hour 40 mins. This is about the same time it takes to drive from the south eastern suburbs to Melbourne airport and board a commercial flight. Literally you are in Sydney before your jet may have departed. Should you require specialised  catering and or two pilot operation, this can also be provided to make your charter all the more tailor-made.

International  visitors fly from all around the globe to see Australia’s great Southern Island wilderness of Tasmania, King Island, Flinders Islands plus the naturalist retreat of Kangaroo Island while enjoying five star accommodation at Saffire Lodge in Freycinet, Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island.  So why not mix a dash of adventure with a pampering spa treatment in your Great Southern inspired Bespoke Air Tour?
