The flights depart Norfolk Island at 1300 on each day arriving Hamilton at 1525 and then returning the same day to Norfolk Island at 1625 arriving at 1810.

The dates of the charter flights fit perfectly with passengers wishing to travel to Hamilton for the V8 Super Car races from Norfolk Air Australian gateway cities of Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney, and Melbourne.

5 night holiday packages to Norfolk Island including return airfares, 3.5 star accommodation, return airport transfers and half-day sightseeing tour, car rental and taxes and fees start at only $999.00NZDpp. The packages can only be bought at and go on sale from today.

Chief Executive Norfolk Air, Ewan Wilson said "
Hamilton and the Waikato is a world class destination. Combine that with the V8 Super Car event and the fact that Norfolk Island as a destination is particularly popular in the Waikato, and the School holidays means that this is a unique opportunity. We are attracted by the superb airport facilities which are uncongested, and an airport company who are dynamic and innovative. Operationally Hamilton is a dream. It is the first time that we have been able to promote through traffic and connect our two major markets. We are excited by that!"
