Additional Extras

Direct Flight - (Base Price)

Most of our customers upgrade to a Brisbane CBD Scenic, if you’re looking to make the tour even more special, the Gold Coast Scenic flight 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

Brisbane 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


Gold Coast Scenic - (+99.00)

This Gold Coast scenic flight is simply breathtaking. This scenic flight doesn’t just span 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 inland to take a look at the city from the western hills. Endless Beaches, beautiful skyscrapers and brilliant blue water. No wonder it’s called surfers paradise

Do you have operating hours?

Our full day brisbane pub crawl is designed to depart at 9:30 and arrive back at 16:30. Half day tours are slightly shorter 11:00 – 16:30. With that said, if you have certain time requirements please talk to us and we will do everything possible to make it happen

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 Airbus AS350/H125 helicopter can seat 5 passengers without an individual weight limit

Our Industry leading cancelation policy

Perhaps a low bar to clear. Anyone who had a flight cancelled for any reason would have gone through the painful process of trying to get a refund. We did everything possible to make our cancelation policy one of the best. We are certain that you won’t find anywhere that offers a policy as transparent and flexible as ours

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

On the day if we 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 affects the experience, eg when it’s raining) we can offer full refund or to reschedule your flight to an other day

We do not offer refunds for no-shows or cancelations inside the 24 hour period

Gift Vouchers

Our gift vouchers are processed by hand and can be purchased at no extra cost. The holder is also able to upgrade their flight without incurring extra fees. Don’t want to book a date? All vouchers are valid for 3 years and can be redeemed any time within the period. They can also be transferred to an other person, and no; we do not charge extra for that either. After you submit the purchase they will be created by hand 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?

We account for about 45min per pub stop. Ultimately within the time-frame, it’s up to you how long you would like to spend at each pub

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

Intoxication Policy

Let’s get the most important question you have out of the way first, we want you to have fun do not limit our customers to one beer per venue. However – it should be noted that this is not an opportunity to get drunk at 2,000 feet. Safety is paramount, and so are the rules around aircraft boarding whilst intoxicated. Additionally we love and we baby our helicopters, we dedicate hours per aircraft each week just to clean and look after them. We don’t contract some detailing company to do this; we do it ourselves – every day we fly. Please keep this in mind when ordering one too many. It’s about the experience; one which you want to remember!
