Air Chathams returning

Air Chathams is slowly relaunching scheduled flights from its Auckland Airport base to Whakatane, Whanganui and the Kapiti Coast commencing 24 May.

Airline management have been working with the district councils to agree on a way forward that allows the airline, which has suffered a 90% drop off in revenue during Covid-19, a lower risk way to reinstate flights while demand and confidence to travel by air returns to the domestic network.

Flights have not stopped between the Chatham Islands and its mainland NZ ports throughout Levels 4 and 3.

Under Level 2 customers are again able to book flights to the Chathams using the airline’s website and call centre.

Whilst following Ministry of Transport guidelines including social distancing on flights, Air Chathams has also implemented a strict Level 2 PPE & Hygiene Policy which includes an increased aircraft cleaning schedule and free of charge hygiene packs for all traveling passengers including a face mask to be worn on flights.
