Scheduled commercial flights are available to thousands of destinations around the world. Commercial airlines reach even some of the smallest communities with scheduled flights.

However, a few stunning destinations are only accessible by private charter flight. These are the destinations that Simple Flying is going to tell you about.

Lady Elliot Island, Australia

Lady Elliot Island is a coastal location in Australia with clear water and an abundance of marine life. The destination is one of the few remote places that can be reached by air. Since there are no scheduled flights to Lady Elliot Island, you need to organize a chartered private flight to get there. The runway consists of a grass surface with a length of 1755 feet (535 m).

Rainbow Bay, Alaska

Rainbow Bay in Alaska is another great place that can only be reached by charter flight. It is one of the most remote areas of the United States with no official addresses or major roads. The nearest main road is 180 miles away. You can get to the area using the public service of Pedro Bay Airport.

Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are a wildlife watching destination located 1000 km off the coast of Ecuador. Only two airports, Baltra and San Cristobal airports, serve more than 127 small and medium-sized islands in the region. The area is only accessible by private charter flight, specifically to Baltra Airport.


Nauru is the smallest island nation in the world, with only 10,000 inhabitants. Nauru is also the most unvisited country in the world. The remote island is connected to other larger islands via the country's national airline, Our Airline. The carrier flies only twice a week, so there is little choice but to use a private jet.

Ittoqqortoormiit, Greenland

The beauty of the northern lights can be seen from this beautiful place in Greenland. One of the biggest adventures in this area is getting to Ittoqqortoormiit. Tourists can only take a regular flight once or twice a week, limiting access to the stunning area.

Skeleton Coast, Namibia

The Skeleton Coast in Namibia consists of scattered shipwrecks and scattered skeletons of numerous sea creatures. It is one of the most beautiful places in South Africa for flying. The Bushmen of Namibia call this region "the land created by God in Wrath!" because of its history with skeletons. The region looks like a scene from a science fiction novel.

As TravelWise reported earlier, experts explained whether it is advisable to buy private jets and how much it will cost.
