3C 401 and 3C 402 - DELAYED


Air Chathams have delayed the start of their Auckland-Norfolk Island flights. On the 15th of April, following the announcement of the trans-Tasman bubble, Air Chathams announced that they are resuming flights to and from Norfolk Island from May 27th using Saab 340 aircraft.

Unfortunately, the airline had to delay the recommencement of flights to Norfolk Island. In a statement the day before the resumption of the service Air Chathams said, “We are deeply disappointed to advise that due to delays in legislative process here in NZ (namely around Air Chathams being added to the Air Border Order as an approved Quarantine Free Travel airline) we will not be able to operate tomorrows scheduled service to Norfolk Island… We have now started the process to contact all passengers on this week and next week’s flights to offer rebook/refund options.” 

The airline's website now says flights will resume on the 10th of June 2021.  



  1. Hi Steve
    Did you also notice that today they appear to be switching to a ATR For the Norfolk run. Google shows a paywall CAPA post and Air Chathams currently shows an Atr to Norfolk although it shows a Saab back

  2. The first week, 10 June does seem to be an ATR... thereafter Saab!

  3. You are right Peter... I didn't zoom in enough!
