Motiti Island Competition

Sunair have officially announced they are offering services to Motiti Island. The island is 21 kilometres  north-east of Tauranga and 9.4 kilometres north-east of Papamoa. The service operates on demand with a round trip to the island being a flat rate of $160. The company's Facebook page says "Grab some mates and split the price. A quick 10 minutes and you'll be on the island."

This is not the first time the airline has operated to Motiti Island. In March 1990 Sunair purchased Island Air Safaris and their Cessna P206 Super Skylane ZK-DRD and took over their flights from Tauranga to Motiti Island. The operation was later sold to Island Air Services, which lasted a year or so, before it was on sold to Island Air Charter which continues to operate to Motiti Island. Sunair has  offered services at occasionally at other times.
