Norfolk Air has announced plans to run a series of Charter flights between the beautiful island paradise of Norfolk Island nestled in the South Pacific to New Zealand¹s fourth largest city Hamilton, in April 2008 (subject to regulatory approval). Norfolk Air is wholly owned by the Norfolk Island Government.

The four return flights using a Boeing 737 ­ 200 with 98 economy and 8 Bounty business class seats will operate on 17, 22, 24 April and 01 May 2008. 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. The flights will also enable Waikato residents during the New Zealand school holidays to escape to Norfolk Island for either a 5 or 7night holiday.

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. Holidaymakers can also fly on Norfolk Air services to Melbourne, Sydney, Newcastle and Brisbane via Norfolk Island.

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!"

Chief Executive, Hamilton International Airport, Chris Doak said "We are delighted that Norfolk Air has chosen Hamilton International Airport, it's a confirmation that our airport facilities are world class. Norfolk Air will be the first new international airline in eleven years. We look forward to welcoming them."
