I've been flying 2-3 month with FlyPelican and at first I was a little daunted with the size of the plane but now I love each trip. The plane only seats 19 passengers and doesn't have a flight attendant. You do get to meet the pilots though and see them in action. The trip only takes one hour and is...

Small regional airline that provided a direct service from Canberra to Newcastle. Staff and pilots were friendly. No in flight service but and seating size was very tight. Overall good service from what you would expect from a small regional airline. Would fly with them again.

I was so delighted to see this new route out of Newcastle as I have several relatives in Adelaide and getting down to Sydney to fly out makes it a long, tedious trip. This is now a great option. I found all the staff very pleasant and helpful and the plane was just as comfortable as the Jetstar planes used...

I was getting ready to undertake an unpleasant 4- or 5-hour drive from Canberra to Newcastle, up one evening, back the next morning, aware that Brindabella Airlines had folded since I'd last flown nonstop on that route. However, I was delighted to find that nonstop flights are back again, courtesy of Fly Pelican, so I went ahead and booked a...

to get to canberra by air from newcastle, this is the best option. direct flights and you get great views on the way down. It is noisy, so take headphones. seats are comfortable and there was no turbulence. friendly crew. no snacks, only water.

I fly from Mudgee to Sydney several times a year and always have a great experience with Fly Pelican. Staff are always friendly and efficient. It is great to have the ability to get to Sydney in an hour, thanks FlyPelican ☺

It is a great regional route and can be especially convenient, Flights are generally on time and we mostly enjoy the trip Sydney to Dubbo and to and forth from the Newcastle region. Although we have had poor customer service in Mudgee and unhelpful staff. Certainly not up to the quality you would expect in a great airline and in...

I use this airline 4 or 5 time a year to go to and from Sydney from Mudgee and always enjoy ht e flight. it is quite a small plane with about 18 or 19 seats and 2 pilots. One of them, the junior pilot acts as a host packing away your carry-on luggage that you have to place by...
