Welcome to our Air Travel and Services information for researching and planning your airline travel throughout Australia. Additional information may be found on the related transport and air travel page under each state or territory.

There are also some smaller air charter operators that service destinations within state/territory and across state/territory borders in Australia, often destinations that are not serviced by the larger airline services.

One of the easiest and quickest ways to get from point A to point B is via air. Whether it is on an international flight or domestic flight, air travel is fairly easy to research and arrange these days.

All airlines have their own website, with some, especially the major brands providing special offers, discounts or promotional deals, especially to members. Usually membership is available online, where by joining you are automatically notified of any specials, especially cut price fares.

Of course, you must remember to take into account any 'hidden fees' or 'applicable fees' such as 'checked luggage' or 'excess baggage', special seating (for those requiring more leg room), inflight refreshment or entertainment (some airlines charge for this), advance seating or assigned seating (where you can select a seat for a charge), and credit card fees (especially in cases where the airline does not accept EFTPOS). More often than not, these ancillary products (fees) are only revealed if you purchase your ticket through the airlines own website, at airport kiosks, when you check in or after you have purchased the ticket.

Of course air travel can be a tour or charter. These sightseeing flights offer a different way to see the country, especially for the more difficult to get to areas. Helicopters rides also provide a great way to see a particular region, throwing a different perspective on the landscape.

If you want to compare prices between airlines, you can either opt to go to the individual airline websites and check the prices there or use one of a number of airline price comparison sites that can show flights and the latest deals they have on offer.

Many service providers have a national presence, whilst others have businesses that are state/town/city specific. These can be viewed by clicking on the appropriate State and Territory Transport link. There are also tour operators that offer transportation as part of their tour package.
