Stewart Island Flights

SAVE $20 on the flight; Stewart Island Flights is a locally owned and operated business. We operate 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.
We proudly operate two Britten Norman Islanders, one Piper Cherokee Six and one Cessna 185.
Stewart Island Flights is driven by a passion for the unique experience that Stewart Island has to offer, we appreciate that this island is like no other and wish to share this singular environment with the world.
We pride ourselves on our friendly staff and providing the best service to cater for all visitors to this native paradise.
We are also committed to the protection and conservation of the flora and fauna of Stewart Island, including the endangered Kakapo of Codfish Island. As sole fixed wing operators for Department of Conservation staff, we take a personal interest in the plight of this rare bird.
