The airport is a charming little place up on the Sunshine Coast. There are only about 10 flights a day going to Sydney and Melbourne. It has recently been upgraded and expanded the gate area is much bigger and has food outlets and toilets. It opens up on to the runway and provides nice views. It's an easy airport to handle as it isn't too big to get lost in but isn't so small so as to feel cramped. The butterfly sanctuary between check-in and security (which must be walked through as it is on the pathway) is a lovely touch and provides a unique atmosphere. The ground staff are very friendly. If heading up to the Sunshine Coast it is often cheaper and quicker to fly direct rather than to Brisbane and by far it is an easier airport to use!
