Summer Ramp Up


Summer is just around the corner and Barrier Air is ramping up for the busy holidays. Their North Shore to Great Barrier Island service operates during the winter months on a reduced schedule but as per the norm over the last few years is currently operating daily leading into twice daily services operating during December and thrice daily services in the busy January school holiday period.

In the same way Whitianga has ramped up with additional flights and twice daily flights most of the time. The grass runway at Whitianga continued to be a challenge in the wet winter months necessitated a reduced schedule but the service continues to be popular with Whitianga locals.

On the Auckland - Great Barrier service up to 18 flights a day will be operated.

For Barrier Air this is a time to make hay when the sun is shining with a much lesser demand during the rest of the year. And lets hope the sun will be shining in Auckland this summer.
