Private Jet Charter in Melbourne and Australia
Australia is one of the largest countries in the world, with over 7.5m sq km’s of territory. Whilst it has a healthy population of close to 24m people, it also has one of the lowest population densities in the world, with approximately 3 individuals per sq km. Stay with us, as there is a point to all of these numbers!
On top of all of this, the population is largely urbanised, with a majority of people living in a handful of large cities, eastern states and coastal regions. And lastly, it is one of the wealthiest countries in the world.
So, in consideration of the above, when one joins the dots between a huge landmass, a wealthy population focused largely in cities, and substantial distances separating many of these population centres, it is logical that there is a healthy demand for private jet charter across the country.
Within Australia, Canberra is of course the national capital, and Sydney may be the most populous city in the country, but Melbourne is often referred to as the cultural capital of Australia; and in terms of being either a destination or departure point it is Melbourne for which we see the most enquiries.
Of course, during late December through to April, enquiries relating to Melbourne are boosted by international sporting events which attract a huge and loyal following, such as the Australian Grand Prix, the Australian Open, and the Boxing Day Test at Melbourne’s famous MCG. But there is also a healthy domestic demand throughout the year, as the large distances between CBD’s result in businesses looking to capitalise on costs and efficiency, which can be maximised by chartering a corporate jet.
Sydney Kingsford Smith is the busiest international airport in Australia, followed by Melbourne Tullamarine airport. Melbourne Essendon airport, a 20 minute drive from the centre of Melbourne itself, is one of the busiest corporate and business jet airports in Australia.
For private or corporate jet charter to either Sydney Kingsford Smith airport or Melbourne Essendon airport, please contact Villiers Jets for a quote.
