Stewart Island Flights
The first air transport to connect Stewart Island and the mainland was Stewart Island Flights, operating an amphibian aircraft . The plane landed in the harbour and taxied up the beach to the local hotel.
Twenty years ago this was succeeded by Southern Air Ltd with the establishment of an airstrip at Ryan’s Creek. Today, Stewart Island Flights is a locally owned and operated business.
Stewart Island Flights maintain scheduled flights linking Stewart Island and Invercargill as well as a number of exciting alternatives providing access to the more remote reaches of the island.
