Locally Based

Our aircraft is based at Warrnambool Airport, which dramatically reduces the cost of a charter as you do not need to pay for the plane to fly from Melbourne empty to pick you up. For example, a trip from Warrnambool to King Island by a Melbourne based charter company would cost over $5,000 in a comparable capacity aircraft. South Coast Air can have seven of you on King Island for $2,625 or $375 per person.

Why choose chartered aircraft if the airlines go there?

Scenario: Your company needs to fly three employees and six visiting clients to Mildura, Victoria, for the day for a site visit. All things going well, you expect you’ll need about four hours on the ground in Mildura all though this may change depending on the visitors demands. The Company values employees at $100/hr each.

Option 1: Airlines

Option 1: Airlines

Earliest flight is with Rex at 8:15am arrive Mildura 9:35am. Using the flexible business fare to even come close to the flexibility of charter (basically it only allows you to change the day, not the time – unlike charter) the fare for 3 people comes to $7,908, plus airport parking. You must leave Warrnambool at around 4:00am, and hope that the traffic on Western Ring Road isn’t too bad because that Rex plane isn’t going to wait for you! Also factor in time for the carpark and bus rigmarole.

Coming back it’d be prudent to book a early evening flight, just in case the meeting and visit goes longer than scheduled. The Rex flight departs Mildura at 6:30pm, back in Melbourne by 7:50pm and you’d likely be home in Warrnambool by around 11:30pm after driving for as long as it took to fly from Mildura! All in all a 15+ hour day – cost to the company $4,500, and you are all probably pretty wrecked and get little done the next day because you are exhausted! Factor in a lost 2 hours each for this and the total is over $12,000.


Option 2: Chartered Aircraft

Option 2: Chartered Aircraft

Firstly, you can sleep in to 6am – bliss! Getting to Warrnambool Airport by 7:30am, you depart 15 minutes later after a quick pre-flight briefing. That’s it! No car parking, busses, check-in, security, 30 minute boarding time etc. Arriving in Mildura at 9:00am you snare a rental car before the Rex passengers have even got off the plane.

The meeting and site visit goes according to plan, and you and the team are all done by 2:00pm arriving back at Warrnambool Airport at 4:30pm, home less than 20 minutes later.

Cost is $4,500 for the charter, $2,700 in company time for a total of $7,200.

Plus you all got to see your friends or family or just relax on the verandah after a days work and watch the sun set, which is.. priceless.
