Essendon airport was quiet and comfortable. The young man at the check-in counter was obviously new to the job (and the industry); there were a few hiccups, but he was trained to an acceptable standard. the flight left on time and was comfortable, if not a bit cramped. We landed in Warrnambool 10 minutes early. Prices were on the high...

We flew from Essendon airport to aflinders island in a small 18 seat plane. I really enjoyed the simplicity and relaxed nature of flying from Essendon airport - no crowds, no queues, efficient service. The flight was on time straightforward and trouble free. A great company to fly with thanks

It's always an adventure flying on a smaller, regional airline. And these guys do it well. Like a happy family, working together. Servicing an offshore island from Tasmania means they have a LOT of regulars traveling with them - and it shows. They seem to know everyone! Which is great. But they still took care of this first time traveller...

Small airport. Lovely and helpful staff. It is a tiny plane, slightly subject to cross winds, so not for the squeamish traveler. Airfares rather high, but needed to maintain services to small island, very like Ireland, cloaked in green and mists at this time of year. Faultless service.

We flew from Launceston to King Island via Wynyard and return after enjoying a week on King Island. The check in with Stuart at the Sharp Terminal in Launceston was courteous and efficient. The First officer gave us a good safety briefing and we were on our way. The flight to Wynyard was smooth with great views of the Tasmanian...

The Metroliner is a 25y old plane that has limited headroom and comfort. But as a regional carrier it is ideal for the 35 minute flight to and from Flinders Island ex Launceston. Only seats 19.

A group of golfers recently used sharp airlines to visit the golf courses on King island. Although we were told that golf clubs travelled free and not part of your baggage limit of 21 kgs management subsequently changed their policy. Your baggage limit is 21 kgs and with your golf clubs weighing in at say 15 kgs it does not...

Returning on a Friday was a no problem activity. We were told to leave our hire car at the airport car park, with keys in (like most islands where is it going to go?), check in was a breeze. Waiting room had a "coffee machine", some seating & rest rooms. Very relaxed atmosphere watching Styrofoam boxes of probably rock lobsters...

First of all it has taken more than 1 month since my request for TA to actually list Sharp so, from what I recall, this flight originates from Essendon airport, with a free shuttle from Tullamarine, which arrived mostly on time ! The Metroliner, I was advised by my GP, ex RAAF, was called the flying pencil but I think...
