Located on Hamilton Island, the airport is serviced by Virgin Australia, Jetstar and Qantas Link with direct flights from Cairns, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. If you have arranged with Cumberland Charter Yachts to start your charter at Hamilton Island, you can hop on the island shuttle bus which meets every flight and have it take you to the marina. It's a quick 5-minute transfer and will cost you $8 per person.
If starting your charter from Airlie Beach, at the arrival area of the airport where you pick up your luggage, you will find the Cruise Whitsundays check-in counter where you receive your ferry ticket and luggage tags, before making your way down the jetty to board the ferry, only 100m from the arrivals area.
Cruise Whitsundays meet every arriving and departing flight offering a seamless and hassle-free option to get to Airlie Beach. The ferry transfer takes approximately 50 minutes taking you on a nice scenic route through the islands before arriving at Port of Airlie, centrally located in Airlie Beach and has a complimentary phone to call a local taxi if there isn't already one there waiting.
When deciding which airport to fly into, take into consideration the cost of the flight, the cost of the transfers to Airlie Beach, and the time it takes to get you to where you need to be. Either way though, getting here is easy and you're spoilt for choice.
