Date: November 2015.
Flight Path: ADL - KGC
CHECK IN: Swift. No queues and you're given a choice of seat if the aircraft isn't fully booked. One piece of checked luggage is allowed, up to 15 kilograms.
PLANE: The Saab340 twin engine turboprop plane is just right for the short journey. The seat, small at only 18.5inches width, is comfy enough for the 20 minute flight. There's one toilet if you should require.
ENTERTAINMENT: Some reading material on the local attractions. Best to keep your attention fixated on the views.
FOOD: Water is served alongside a snack of mentos and crisps.
SERVICE: The staff have the procedure down pat. Safety information is delivered clearly and they're extremely efficient. The host was attentive, particularly with bag assistance and water top ups. Above all, they're incredibly friendly, which reflects well as a regional airline.
LOUNGE: If you fly regionally on a regular basis it might be worth investing in a REX lounge membership. There are outlets in both Sydney and Adelaide.
CONCLUSION: My travels were taking me to Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island and it was an easy decision to choose a short flight over driving. It's quick, eliminates stress and is quite a pretty journey. Coupled with REX's efficiency, I'd say its the best form of travel to Kangaroo Island.
