Visiting Melbourne with flight to Avalon Airport
I visited Melbourne last year for a short holiday. When looking for a reasonable plane ticket, I found one with Qantas Airlines with arrival to Avalon Airport. First, I thought Avalon must be far away from my destination because the ticket did not mention Melbourne at all. Yet when I looked in the map, I saw that there is a shuttle between Avalon Airport and Melbourne, therefore I purchased the ticket. My flight to Avalon Airport was a pleasant one with great service that Qantas airlines provided onboard. On the ticket, it said the flight will take 3 hours, yet it was only 2 hours and 15 minutes in reality. The return ticket was issued for five days later, and I spent the last evening at the Avalon Airport waiting for my flight back.
Visiting From Adelaide to Brisbane through Avalon
I needed to fly from Adelaide to Brisbane for a business reasons, but this was a last-moment decision and no direct flights for the date were available. I always purchase my ticket at a ticket agent downtown Adelaide, and the ticket agent suggested an alternative route through Avalon Airport near Melbourne. I never heard of Avalon Airport before but I purchased this ticket anyway. The ticket was quite cheap. I decided to leave the airport in Avalon because my layover was fairly long in Avalon. Included in my airfare ticket was a ticket for shuttle from Avalon Airport to Melbourne, so I visited Melbourne where I had lunch before flying on from Avalon to Brisbane. My ticket agent then succeeded at booking my return ticket directly to Adelaide so I didn't have to stop at Avalon again. The airlines did a great job at their service on board.
