The changes come along with price increases to the entire network. These were necessary to help combat rising costs, less-predictable demand and to help activate more private jet flights in a shared environment.
Fly to Adelaide by private jet
As a result of the changes we have included Adelaide and Cooma as new destinations.
Adelaide will be accessible from Melbourne and Sydney airports.
Cooma will be a seasonal option from Sydney perfect for Winter.
To take advantage of these changes you need to be part of Airly’s SHARED program.
First of all download and register the Airly private jet app. Then you can apply for membership.
With ongoing border instability we’ll be launching new seasonal routes in the future including Sydney – Cooma, Melbourne – Mount Hotham and Brisbane – Hamilton Island.
The perks of the SHARED program are best described by Lee Teirney, one of our first SHARED members, who loved the concept so much he joined the team in 2020 as VP of Membership and Experience.
As an Airly member having access to shared flights meant that I could have the convenience of flying private for a fraction of the cost, and non of the hassle of a crowded Airport. Also having the opportunity to meet a wide range of like minded people.

We’re thrilled to be working on a new product that will completely revolutionise private jet charter. The introduction of this new product will also have benefits for members on the SHARED program as well.
After facilitating 11 flights in 2020 we want to see more members initiating flights, and most importantly, activate at least 4 SHARED flights per month.

Australia’s fastest growing aviation company, Airly, has announced plans to resume offering members seats on private flights to Byron Bay and Mt Hotham just in time for the July school holidays.
Airly members can opt into an existing flight or initiate a new one on a luxury private jet via the Airly app. The innovative on-demand service, which requires arrival only 15 minutes prior to departure, makes flying private convenient and affordable.
The cost of the seats on the member-only flights from Sydney and Melbourne are comparable to business class.
With the commercial airlines still only planning to be at 40 per cent 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.
“Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen a surge in business travellers using our service to get their businesses moving now that restrictions are easing. With limited local options from the commercial airlines, and no way to holiday overseas, we expect domestic travellers looking to make the most of the upcoming winter break will make up the next wave,” explained Luke Hampshire, Airly’s Co-founder.
“For holiday makers, Airly creates the opportunity to travel in style for very little additional cost compared to flying business class with the commercial airlines. The more members fly with Airly, the more flights become available. Our innovative membership-based approach creates a network effect,” added Luke.
As borders reopen more shared flight opportunities will be offered including the Gold Coast from both Sydney and Melbourne.
In these uncertain times our new private jet membership with no ongoing fees gives you something to rely on.
With Virgin under a cloud and Qantas operating at 5% of its pre-pandemic capacity commercial flights are scarce, making it hard for you to get to where you need to go to get your business up and moving again.
A membership with Airly gives you access to shared flights on private jets across the eastern seaboard at a price that is comparable with business class.
To support Australian businesses we are waiving all membership fees until July and our new membership structure will have no ongoing fees.
So whether you need travel for yourself or for your entire team Airly will have a private flight solution for you, from single seats to a whole plane.

As a private travel club, your Airly membership makes private air travel accessible and affordable.
Private jet charter is available at any time, stay tuned for great options on empty legs but with few commercial flights available demand for an Airly membership is growing.
So here are a few things to consider when looking for a seat on a shared flight:
1. Check for activated flights before initiating a new one; which leads to 2. Flexible travel times; 3. Initiate flights early to give us more time to find fellow jet setters; 4. Refer Airly to colleagues and associates. The more members Airly has the more planes we can offer and the more benefits you receive.
Referring Airly to your friends with our new app is so simple. You’ll have a unique code, and with a simple click of ‘Share’ you can SMS, email or copy and paste the link.
