Air Chathams Flights

Friday, August 10, 2018

This week I was very pleased to see that Air Chathams announced flights between Norfolk Island and Auckland, New Zealand.  Burnt Pine Travel advertised the details of the Thursday flights schedule this week for 25th October, 1st November, 8th November and 15th November 2018.

I also read about these travel dates a couple of months ago, via the Air Chathams web page:

In 2018, Air Chathams in partnership with Pukekohe Travel have three week-long tours available including direct flights from Auckland to Norfolk.

It is fantastic to know that there will be opportunities for New Zealanders to be able to have direct flights to Norfolk Island, and it also gives the local community a chance to visit family and friends in New Zealand, without having to travel via Sydney or Brisbane.

During the Norfolk Island Country Music 2018 festival week Air Chatham charter flight came to Norfolk Island.  I took photos in May for their plane as it was parked at the Norfolk Island Airport.  Air Chatham also had a cargo flight deliver freight a month ago.  It was a lovely plane with a image of “Hopo” or “Toroa” the Chatham Islands Albatross bird painted on the front of the plane.  I found a great photo of the artwork on their Facebook page.

If you wish to book a holiday, contact Burnt Pine Travel for information about organising a seat on the flights.

Thank you Air Chathams and Burnt Pine Travel for making these links between Auckland and Norfolk Island.
