Options for getting into the Kimberley have never been better. Qantas, Skywest Airlines and Virgin Blue all offer differing flight and pricing packages that cover all budgets.

Qantas has double daily flights operating Boeing 737s and Boeing 717s under the QantasLink banner. Business class is available on the Boeing 737s. The flights are morning and afternoon and fare levels start at $237 one way, including all taxes.

Skywest Airlines offers a variety of options with its very spacious 97-seat Fokker 100 jets. The airline operates six services a week on five days to Broome and on Sundays the flight operates via Exmouth. This gives passengers wishing to see some of the sights of Exmouth the opportunity to fly onto Broome.

On Wednesdays and Thursdays, Skywest’s Broome service goes on to Kununurra and three times a week the Perth-Broome service operates onto Darwin. Fares to Broome start at just $229, Kununurra $301 and Darwin $259.

Skywest calls its cabin service premium economy with an 86 centimetre seat pitch and hot meals. Most airlines have a 79 to 81cm seat pitch.

Importantly, Skywest is the only airline offering pure jet connections between WA’s key north-west tourist destinations of Exmouth, Broome, Kununurra and Darwin.

QantasLink operates a direct Perth-Kununurra service and Qantas a Perth-Darwin service.

Virgin Blue has a daily Perth-Broome service departing Perth at 5pm returning from Broome at 8pm using Boeing 737-800 aircraft. Fares start from just $149 one way.
