Airly resumes offering Mt Hotham flights to cater for lift ticket  

Airly resumes offering Mt Hotham flights to cater for lift ticket  
June 19, 2020

Airly, Australia’s fastest growing aviation company, has announced plans to resume offering members access to shared private flights to Mt Hotham’s Alpine village to coincide with the start of the ski season.

With Mt Hotham tickets going on sale this week, and with travel restrictions pushing interest in skiing holidays to an all-time time, Airly offers an ‘on demand’ service for luxury private jets to key destinations via an app with pricing comparable to a commercial business class ticket.

Members can opt into an existing Mt Hotham flight or initiate a new one leaving from either Sydney or Melbourne. Arrival time is only 15 minutes prior to departure which makes flying private to Mt Hotham convenient and affordable.

For those wanting to fly north for Winter, Airly has also resumed offering members access to shared private flights to Byron Bay. Currently the most popular route is Sydney / Melbourne with new flights being initiated daily.

Airly’s Co-founder, Luke Hampshire notes “with the commercial airlines still only planning to be at 40% pre-pandemic capacity by the end of July, and only 46 Sydney to Melbourne flights a week for the foreseeable future, interest in Airly has grown significantly since COVID-19.

“App-usage is up by 80% and membership has more than doubled since Airly’s popular Sydney / Melbourne flights resumed in May. Airly creates the opportunity to travel in style for very little additional cost – and the planes we use have plenty of stowage for skis and snowboards.”

The more members fly with Airly, the more flights become available. As borders reopen more shared routes will be offered including the Gold Coast from both Sydney and Melbourne.
