Additional Extras

Additional Extras

Direct Flight - (Base Price)

Most of our customers upgrade to a Brisbane CBD Scenic, which really does take the experience to the next level. If you’re looking to get from the airport and back the fastest, or on a budget the direct flight is the choice for you. Don’t worry, we do not implement techniques to up-sell every flight, or treat any of our customers differently – everyone gets the same Bekaa Air service

P.S. Seriously – if you’re already stretching your budget, your loved one will be over the moon with a direct flight

City Scenic - (+99.00)

Spice up your flight with a Brisbane City scenic. You will be taken past St Lucia and the Gabba, across the Brisbane River. Past Kangaroo Point and the botanical gardens. We will bend a left around the Meriton to showcase the northern side of Brisbane. Then we will complete an other arc flying past West End and Southbank. All this at a perfect height of 1000ft (300m) above the terrain bellow.

Please note that the City is inside Brisbane Controlled Airspace. Whilst we do everything possible to secure a clearance into this airspace sometimes due to unforeseen circumstances [such as a rescue helicopter coming to land] we may not be allowed in. In this case we will fly past South Bank and West End at the edge of the controlled airspace we will then make a left turn and fly overhead Mt Cootha and the TV Towers giving you a view of the entire Brisbane area. If it’s clear you will be able to sometimes see all the way to Southport and the Glasshouse Mountains

$99.00pp

Moreton Island Scenic - (+305.00)

If you want the best experience, nothing comes close to the paradise that is Stradbroke and Moreton Island. Your flight path is going to take you eastbound. Past the QEII Stadium and Mt Cotton. We will then pass Siromet Winery and Redland Bay/Victoria point. A few island hops away as it’s known to the locals, is North Straddie. Here is where the real fun begins; our customers often spot whales, dugongs, sting rays, sharks amongst perfect beaches and sandbanks. We will take you all the way to the most northern tip of Moreton Island, North Point Light. Next stop Tangalooma Resort where once again we will descend to have a look at numerous shipwrecks scattered around the bay. As we turn back everyone will get an opportunity to share the other side of the experience.

$305.00pp

Gold Coast Scenic - (+305.00)

This Gold Coast scenic flight is simply breathtaking. Unlike some companies who only take you up to South Port/Sea World. We are going to fly coastal southbound all the way past Q1 and Broad Beach at 1000ft. Then we are going to descend down to 500ft (150m) for a closer look on the way back to the spit. Endless Beaches, beautiful skyscrapers and brilliant blue water. No wonder it’s called surfers paradise

$305.00pp

FAQ

FAQ

Do you have operating hours?

We don’t have operating hours because we operate around your requirements. As long as there is light, we can fly (approx. 30min prior sunrise and 30min after sunset, but season dependent). You can call us any time between 8:00 – 17:00, with the phone being forwarded on to our Chief Pilot outside of business hours. We can land almost anywhere as long as it’s large enough to accommodate our aircraft and we can ascertain landing permission from the landowner. The only exception is our sunset flight which has it’s own time-slot each day

Can we talk during the flight?

Yes. All of our aircraft are equipped with the best Noise cancelling headsets by Bose. They are crystal clear and cancel out a significant portion of the outside noise. Your pilot will also provide commentary and let you talk between each other

What are the age/height/weight restrictions?

Whilst there is no laws restricting us to a certain age; passenger safety and taking care of you, our customers is always our number one priority. This is why we have made the decision to set the minimum age at 3. Infants who are younger are still developing their neck muscles. In the event of turbulence which is minor nuisance to adults can lead to whiplash in infants. Adult sized headsets fit poorly over their heads which can also lead to hearing damage. The flight can also be sometimes frighting for them, which can take away from the experience. Best leave them at home with a baby sitter and enjoy the helicopter flight

There are no height restrictions

In our R44RII helicopter which most flights are based on the maximum seat limit is 136kg and maximum payload is around 270kg

Our Bell LongRanger seats up to 6 and doesn’t have a per seat limit

What is your cancellation policy?

We are proud to have one of the best cancellation policies in the industry

All of our tours & scenics are private flights, and as such our cancellation and reschedule policies are a lot less restrictive than what you would find elsewhere. If you would like to reschedule your flight we ask that you do so with a 24 hour notice. Within this window our full refund policy applies, (Please note that a 1.95% merchant fee gets deducted from this process by PayPal/Stripe)

In case you can no longer make your flight on the day and would like to cancel your flight, a $100.00 cancellation fee gets deducted from the total refund amount

On the day if deem the conditions to no longer be safe to fly, Bekaa Air customers can either reschedule to any other day or receive a 100% refund. If the weather is marginal (aka safe to fly but less appealing to do so, eg when it’s raining) we can offer full refund or to reschedule your flight to an other day

We try to strike a balance between the very competitive nature of flight operations, looking after our staff, as well as making sure that you have the most flexible policy that we can offer

Buying as a gift?

Our gift vouchers are processed by hand and can be purchased at no extra cost. Don’t want to book a date? All vouchers are valid for 12 months and can be redeemed any time within the period. After you submit the purchase they will be created and sent to you via email. A sample of what a gift voucher looks like can be found here

About your flight

About your flight

How long can we stay?

The basic package accounts for two hours. If you require more time you can select for up to 4hrs (overnight/weekend stays exempted)

Where does this tour start?

Our helicopter tours depart from Archerfield Airport in Brisbane – Our exact location

Can we use our phones?

Yes. Unlike a commercial jet, your phones do not need to be turned to airplane mode. Nor do we charge extra for this

Will we be sitting next to someone?

This is what makes our approach unique. All of our tours, including the scenic flights – are private. This means that when you book your flight for two people, we will not sell the remaining seat to anyone else. Whilst this inadvertently means we make less on each flight, we have made this decision so we ultimately provide a better experience for our customers

Can I fly to/from somewhere else?

You can fly to anywhere you like. You can fly from anywhere you like. All we need is a written landing approval from the land-owner and an assessment by us to make sure that the area meets our safety requirements. The tours you see on our website are the hand-picked ones that meet our quality requirements. Instead of listing as many places as we can, we have selected each individual winery, lodge and resort as a top performer. You will not go wrong no matter which place you chose
