The moves comes two months after fellow Whitsundays-based tour and transfer company GSL Aviation who also moved their flying base and office also to Proserpine Airport from the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour.

With major infrastructure works underway at the Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport, there are new administration areas and tour booking desks within the expanding terminal building, with passenger boarding areas looking to take place on the also expanding Airport parking apron.
Overall, there seems to have been generally mixed reviews of the move of both GSL Aviation and Air Whitsunday Seaplanes, although comments following some of our earlier Facebook posts were generally supportive suggesting that the closer access to the inbound Regular Passenger Transport (RPT) traffic into the region at Proserpine would be most advantageous for both companies and their flights, especially for passengers looking for quicker transfers to the nearby Whitsunday Islands.
Despite some early confusion and "chaos" immediately following their moves, both Air Whitsunday Seaplanes’ and GSL Aviation's operations are now both moving ahead out of Prosie at full speed!
