Sunair's North Shore Flights Starting Next Month

The Dairy Flat airfield might start to look like this competition day if it gets much busier. The North Shore airfield at Dairy Flat is about to get much busier. A twice daily return flight to Auckland International Airport has been started by Barrier Air, Monday to Friday. And Tauranga based Sunair will have twice daily return flights on weekdays from Dairy Flat to Hamilton starting March 7, linking with existing services to Tauranga and Rotorua. It will also have a shuttle van service between the airfield and downtown Auckland. ‘‘We’re giving business people same day returns as we see an opportunity with the North Shore area’s burgeoning population,’’ Sunair chief executive Dan Power says. He says many people are seeing advantages in air travel over driving, especially in avoiding traffic congestion. Newcomers to the Postman Rd airfield, Sunair will have eight-seater Piper Navajo planes operating from there. The company has been running for 20 years and has 10 multi engined aircraft.
