My husband and I had a spectacular scenic flight over the Whitsunday islands and the Great Barrier Reef from Airlie Beach with Alejandro and Brook. It exceeded our expectations - they were very knowledgeable, considerate, and professional. The views were stunning. Best all-around flight experience ever. Absolutely highly recommended.

One of the best things to do in Airlie Beach. We took a Whitsundays Scenic Flight with Fly Australia Charters from the small Airport just 5 mins from Airlie Beach. The staff and pilot where very friendly and informative. The air plane was nice inside with comfortable seats and everyone got a window seat which was perfect for taking pictures of the Whitsunday Islands, Whitehaven Beach, Heart Reef and the Great Barrier Reef. A well run business that cares about their customers and it shows , I throughly recommend this company. 5 stars all round🤙

We did the scenic flight with Fly Australia Charters and we absolutely loved it! Crew were all very friendly, informative and fun, told us about the history of the islands, lookouts, campsites, hikes, luxury resorts, and we managed to see 4x whales! The pilot patiently flew around to ensure we all got to see the whales. The scenery itself is breathtaking! This is a must do!!

Amazing company! 70 minutes flight and within minutes in the air you are on the reef. Great communication with what to expect with different sections of the flight - wind, bumps, movements and why that happens. Great informative flight regarding the different islands. A+ this is a must do if staying in Airlie Beach. Curtesy bus available too for hotel transfers to and from your accommodation.
