Air Whitsunday 40th Birthday Seaplane Flight

by John on April 21, 2013

It is a remarkable achievement for any tour company to successfully operate their business in the same area for 40 years. This week Air Whitsunday celebrated that very achievement and gave locals the present, $40 scenic flights over iconic Whitehaven Beach.

As locals we snapped up this very generous offer. We made the birthday flight with Air Whitsunday last year, so were delighted to be able to do so again at this heavily reduced price. When we booked we thought it would simply be a scenic flight over Airlie Beach, which is a great flight nonetheless, so you can imagine our excitement when the pilot announced we were going for a 30 minute flight to Whitehaven Beach and back. Incredible!

Anyone wanting to see the Whitsundays should take a scenic flight. From the air the Whitsunday islands are amazingly beautiful. There are 74 Islands that make up the group, with Whitsunday Island being the biggest. It is on Whitsunday Island where you find Australia’s best beach, Whitehaven Beach, plus the much photographed Hill Inlet. Air Whitsunday seaplanes are one of the best ways to see both these iconic land marks and all their flights are quite affordable.

Thank you Air Whitsunday for a fabulous flight. I look forward to celebrating your company’s 50th birthday in the Whitsundays.

Ready for a flight.
