    Let's be honest, you're here because you didn't realise Melbourne has 2 airports and you just wanted a cheap flight.Go to Tullamarine next time. The extra $50 is worth it.

    Ucuz uçuşlar buradan, ama şehre çok uzak ve çok ilkel bir havalimanı. Yine de pasaportlu ve gümrük kontrolleri hızlı, otobüs servisi de sık

    Tiny airport with the modernest security checking equipment I’ve ever seen.

    Avoid the coffee. Head for the bar.

    Pay just a bit more and fly to MEL - to avoid the expensive bus ride and extra commute time. Infrequent Skybus services mean you will have to arrive 2 hours before departure - check which bus to take.

    Try not to catch a plane here if you're headed for the CBD.

    Go and explore the local wineries whilst you are in the region- some great Victorian wine to discover #restaurantaustralia

    Small luttle airport in the middle of the field. First time I was there, I was surprised it was in the middle of nowhere. And yeah the flight is cheaper but the transport is very expensive.

    For a tin shed in the middle of nowhere, it's ok. Security staff were friendly, and did not get upset by my over excited 4yr old. Kids corner is brilliant for entertainment while waiting to board.

    In the middle of nowhere, but cheap flights. Don't miss the bus shuttle, the cab cost 100$ to the city. Safe travels!

    Avoid this airport if you can! Just paid $115 taxi ride from the city to this airport & no car rental operators here.

    Enjoy making friends, and watch the rabbits frolicking on the lawns while waiting for that delayed flight!

    If you're a tight arse this is the airport for you. Cheap flights and food.
