Air Chathams History

Who We Are?

Privately owned, Air Chathams has been operating scheduled services for over 30 years. From humble beginnings flying small Cessna aircraft between Chatham & Pitt Island, Air Chathams has grown to employ almost 100 staff spread throughout New Zealand.

Air Chathams pioneered the transport of live crayfish from the Chathams Islands to mainland New Zealand, opening new markets and providing a vital key in the economic development of the islands. Today Air Chathams exports over 700 tonnes of seafood from the Islands annually.

Air Chathams has established a flight operations and maintenance base at Auckland International Airport. From this base the company provides maintenance services both internally and to third party airlines under contract. The airline operates a unique fleet consisting of Convair 580's, Saab 340, Fairchild Metroliners, and a Douglas DC-3, as well as smaller Part 135 aircraft. 

Craig Emeny has built the airline by providing a safe, reliable air service to some of New Zealand’s most remote locations. His passion to provide customers with the best possible service to meet their unique requirements has enabled the airline to operate effectively since 1984.
