Golden Bay Air Limited
PO Box 256
Takaka 7142
New Zealand

Golden Bay Air offers affordable, small group charter flights from Takaka, Nelson and Motueka to most New Zealand destinations.

Whether for business or pleasure, our air charters enable you to visit locations not serviced by scheduled flights, at times that suit you. Our Charters are particularly cost-effective for day return or overnight excursions.

Charter destination Queenstown

Why not:

  • Avoid driving over the Takaka Hill road with a 25 minute charter flight to Nelson, 50 minutes to Wellington and 1 hour to Christchurch
  • Treat your family and friends to a scenic day or overnight excursion—Hanmer Springs, whale watching at Kaikoura, Nelson Lakes, Mount Cook and the glaciers are all within easy reach by air
  • Attend a day business meeting in difficult to access destinations like Gisborne or Greymouth
  • Take the stress out of attending events, funerals or weddings

All passengers wear headsets to attenuate background noise and allow passengers to communicate with each other. Depending on combined weight, up to 5 passengers can be carried per aircraft.

Seats can be removed to enable the carriage of freight or larger items.
