Ayers Rock Flights

For those short on time, flying to Ayers Rock is the best bet as it is so remote. The rock is over 460kms southwest of Alice Springs, which itself is in the middle of nowhere. Driving to Alice Springs takes days in itself, while the trip to Ayers Rock, via Yulara, is another five hours on top. Alternately, Ayers Rock flights only take about 45 minutes from Alice.

Ayers Rock Connellan Airport is just a few kilometres north of the Ayers Rock service town of Yulara, home to the Voyages Ayers Rock Resort, where all the hotels and amenities are located.

Qantas and Virgin Blue offer flights to Ayers Rock. They both run daily routes from Sydney, while Qantas also flies from Alice Springs, Cairns and Perth. Flights are more expensive that travelling overland, but save a lot of time and hassle.

Tourists who are doing a lot of travelling in Australia should consider an air pass with either airline (the Virgin Blue Airpass and the Qantas Aussie AirPass), which include flights to Ayers Rock flights. Both airlines also organise complimentary airport transfers to the Voyages Resort. The transfer takes just a few minutes.

Connellan Airport is a small, easy to use hub with various facilities, including car hire, tour desks, a shop and eateries. Also available from here are scenic flights to Ayers Rock on fixed wing aircraft and helicopters. As an alternative, visitors could fly to Alice Springs and take the bus or drive to Ayers Rock. Flights serve Alice from all major Aussie airports.
