Traveled many times in and out of Melbourne. Reasonably easy to get to by shuttle bus services, and even by bicycle. Train service is lacking. Limited free wifi provided, however sometimes has issues and can be rendered useless. International terminal is nice. Domestic adequate. Budget airline terminal is horrible. Good coffee is available in domestic/intern. terminals. Passport control is ok if your e-passport is accepted (though my Dutch one is not yet on the list), if not then it can be a very long wait. Customs can be a very long wait as well...
La Manna What a top place People say it's expensive, some of it is, but some of them I found the items much cheaper than Coles and Woolworths so very happy and we'll go there again. Breakfast there was excellent five stars, the juice was really nice my sister had the bircher muesli and she absolutely loved it so 100/100 Very clean, salt pepper shakers full , room to move and we went to the liquor department and the gentleman there was very obliging and helpful , he came out and got me a trolley which was excellent service.
A beautiful small airport dedicated to small airlines and general aviation. The location is somewhat precarious due to the fact it is so close by to high-density areas. Sharp Airlines is probably the most known airline to fly from here, with the Royal Flying Doctor Service also operating from here; it’s in close proximity of the major hospitals. Nice small, clean terminal!
Small domestic airport in Melbourne. It also has a shopping centre so, convenient. The flight time could be delayed in some cases which depend on the weather conditions. By the way, safety is the most important thing. Late arrival and departure will be frequently happened but in that case you might be compensated with an accomodation by the airline company.
A SMALL REGIONAL AIRPORT VERY NEAR THE MAIN MELBOURNE AIRPORT Essendon Fields (MEB) is the original Melbourne airport before the massive Tullamarine (MEL) airport was constructed. It mainly services private jets and small regional flights. Has a large shopping centre nearby. Fairly easy access via the same road that goes out to Tullamarine airport.
Amazing attention to customer satisfaction On and off the aircraft, I love to fly with you again. I accidentally left my wallet on board, and I was immediately emailed from Lost Property to advise me that my wallet was found. Also, I was called prior to boarding to make sure I was on my way and if everything is OK.
Amazing little airport I’m currently doing flight training and I have a really great flight instructor, there is a lot of air traffic in and out of the airport which makes it interesting cause u see something new right around the corner, easy to access good shopping district and airport all around
Could have been 5 star, however the house keeping needs work. Things aren't cleaned very well and there was an off milk in the fridge. I called reception to get another and they told me to come to reception to get one with no apology. Bit disappointed but the rest of the place was great.
It is 3.19AM!!!! Why is this idiot doing this at this time... I get pilots need to ‘train’ but SERIOUSLY what could they possibly be learning other than how to annoy people!!??!!?? If it’s a nice night for a flight-go to an un-populated spot!!!!!!!!! Registration: VH-FHJ
This area has potential - they should close the airport and develop the area as a shopping/entertainment district. Beyond a quick visit to LaManna or Coles, there's not really any other drawcard. Would be perfect to have a dining/cinema/entertainment precinct here.
I usually come here as my mother in law likes to buy from LaManna . Since we're there I'll sometimes go to Coles to shop to pick up essentials . It can be hectic depending when you shop but lately it's been quiet due to the year that we've had plus restrictions...
Decent Airport, best one I've been overall. The staffs we're friendly the atmosphere and view was good and the experience was great. The only part I hate is that it rained and we had to go down stairs with rain. It was fine tho I wasn't wet.
Great little airport home of VICPOL AIR HELICOPTER. Essendon airport is now only a fraction of what it once was but still operating mostly to private arrivals and chartered services but still the closest operating air strip to Melbourne CBD
Great experience!!! All the staff were friendly. From the superb instructors to the great guys at the reception!!! They all exhibited every sense of professionalism. I left my headphones on site and it was ensured I got it back in piece.
Melbourne’s Domestic and International Airport prior to the move to Tullamarine. Not as busy as Moorabbin, Tullamarine or maybe even Avalon, but it’s the base for the Victoria Police Air Wing and Air Ambulance Victoria.
Usual Airport. Easy to navigate around inside airport complex. BUT not so easy with roads, highways and roadworks and reconstruction and signage confusing and poor for visitors out of state.
A mix of Industrial building used for small aircraft and also activities like Bounce, Gymnasium and Indoor Sky Diving. Also can catch a glimpse of Vintage Aircraft landing and taking off.
Have caught a plane to regional Victoria near the border of S.A. from this airport. It's very small with few amenities but it is close as can be to the CBD and does the job. 3.5 Stars I
This is not Essendon Airport. This is a retail park on the southside of the airport. People wanting the airport should enter the airport from the West and not via the retail park.
The food wasn't good and very late served plus we paid for the parking the soft drinks one bottle of Pepsi or coca cola for 8 peoples i have degree in hotels management
F I ne touch hand car wash always do a great job on my car. So if you want your car to look good inside and out bring it here, plus they are nice people to deal with.
Lovely little airport with a few regional airlines operating daily and weekly services. Has close tram and bus connections, but has not been upgraded since the 1970s.
Air craft fly too low making living in Essendon/Niddrie hard as sleep is often interrupted by loud sound and vibrations of planes all hours of night/early morning.
Nice place to visit with kids to watch some small planes and helicopters. Shopping center in this area is bit quite but nice to hang around when you there.
Fantastic supermarket fresh produce, excellent deli ,fresh seafood variety of cakes and take aways. Highly recommended for a visit and experience.*****
I shopped at La Manna and love the quality of their fresh and packaged food. If you live in the area and haven't been you need to have a look.
dropped off my son at this airport recently and it has changed from when I was younger, the flow of traffic is much more manageable!
Friendly and attentive staff, also I didn't miss any of ma bagage, which is a common problem with Australian aeroports. 5 stars!
Essendon airfield has a great range of car dealerships on the way through who great supermarkets and a nice place to see things
I been there for 3 days they provide a best services food was awesome and the staff very cooperative definitely i go back soon
Attended a Worrells function, very spacious and a good breakfast, good venue for these events and plenty of parking available.
This is not the best airport but it does the job Flights in lights out Cos I'm all about What it means For dank review memes
This is a hive of activity with all those car dealerships ,La Manna & Coles,Post Office and takeway eating places.
I love this place from laManna, to the various car yards, planes and helicopter s everywhere. What's not to like
Open day was fantastic. Saw inside many planes you would never ordinarily see. Would have loved to see the DC3
Noise polluting jerks disturbing citizens' sleep after one am. A blight on the entire moonee valley region.
If you around for shopping you can watch the take off and landing for A private jet which nice to watch ☺️
Had a fantastic day at Essendon Fields and looking at a private hanger with Jets.. staying st thr Hyatt
Typical Airport. Very convenient and always bustling with people, as you would expect from an airport.
Looking to buy a new car? Look no further, every dealership under the sun all in the one place.
Haven't actually been in, but you can see through the fences and it's definitely an airport.
Awesome close up experience of planes taking off/landing, a few hundred metres away from me
Visited Coles for groceries very clean & well laid out, easy access to Tullamarine freeway
PremiAir Helicopters: an amazing experience, flying over Melbourne; a unique perspective
Hi i am lyana and i dont have any education document where can i study to become a pilot
At first I thought it's a big airport.. nope Small place but Not really nice for smokers
Looking quite nice indoors. Outside looks old-school but that's OK I prefer it that way.
We were at the animal hospital. The vet's and staff were very polite and helpful.
Very nice hotel. Staff are super friendly, polite and curtious. Great place
The air traffic controllers working here are wonderful and friendly!
Good view public transportation access easy way to go anywhere.
During the lockdown, it's a good place for kids to run around.
Awesome little airport and lots of golden photo opportunities
Always greeted by friendly staff who provide a great service
Was great, went on a DC3 flight to King Island, brilliant
2 good supermarkets and plenty of food and coffee shops .
Would be great if the Essendon Football Club wasn't here
Tasty well presented food and excellent service …
Good access, nice hotel, good parking and facilities.
The only place for a new car or to get one serviced.
Not packed, which is always a plus for supermarkets
Can be quite confusing. Especially for Google maps.
Awesome place to rest and enjoy good food and drink
Small airport for private jets and Helicopters
Went for walk on tarmac at Essendon Airport .
its just a shed, with planes. kind of boring
This has also the Westpac ATM's and Coles.
Very busy due to sales and public holiday
Awesome airport with great shuttle access
Great place to watch planes and shop
Kids love seeing the planes take off
We were expecting a basketball court
Great airport with a great history.
