Saab Enters Service

Air Chathams Saab 340B ZK-CIZ entered service on Saturday the 7th of April 2018. Its first flights were on Air Chathams flight 3C 702 from Auckland to Whanganui and the return flight 3C 711.

Air Chathams moved from using the CV prefix to its flights to the IATA code 3C on the 24th of October 2017.


  1. Any word on the other S340? Is it being repainted yet?
    Exciting times for Air Chats. Must be such a proud time for the family run airline from out the waaps well... a whole 45 minutes in the middle of nowhere coming to the rescue

  2. They might have to find more Saab 340s the way things are going if they start PPQ to CHC flights as well.

  3. Interesting comment on Newshub article tonight about Air Chathams potentially flying to Norfolk Island by the end of the year.....

    1. Quick Google found this http://www.norfolkonlinenews.com/ni-regional-council/air-chathams-visit

      Maybe a Connie up to Norfolk???

    2. Thanks for that... I have posted it!
