Cancelled Chatham Islands Flights - March and April 2020

Air Chathams is reluctantly announcing the withdrawal of a number of flights from the Chatham Islands to Wellington, New Zealand and associated return flights due to the extended effects of Covid-19 (coronavirus) on seafood exports. 

Cargo bans are in place in China creating a significant downturn in live export product from the Chathams Islands. As a result Air Chathams has had to withdraw the below flights to Wellington for March and April 2020 as well as the flights returning from Wellington to the Chatham Islands on the same days. These flights are mainly the extended summer season Wednesday flights to and from Wellington. 

If you are booked to fly with us on one of the dates, the team at the Air Chathams office will be in touch to arrange alternate dates for you. 

The flights for Wednesday 8th of April will remain in place as scheduled as there are no flights occurring on Good Friday the 10th of April and Easter Monday the 13th of April. Flights for Wednesday 29th of April will be unaffected

There will be no flights on Monday 27th April which is the Monday observed for Anzac Day.
