Air Chathams lands in Norfolk Island from Auckland
Air Chathams Auckland to Norfolk Island
Air Chathams began a once-weekly service between Auckland and Norfolk Island on 06 September. The airline had been operating charters between the two, but this is now a scheduled operation. Indeed, it’s the airline’s first international scheduled service. It is operated by the ultra-rare Convair 580, of which the airline has four in different configurations. Auckland-Norfolk Island has seen airlines come and go. Air New Zealand Link ended it in 2017, and, afterwards, Norfolk Islands Airlines, using Nauru Airlines aircraft, began both Brisbane and Auckland – and ended in 2018. Norfolk Island is 1,090 kilometres from New Zealand, and is actually closer to New Caledonia. New everywhere!
