Vincent Aviation is an airline based in Wellington, New Zealand. It operates air charter, freight and subcontract flights with hubs at Wellington International Airport and Darwin International Airport, Australia. It was founded by Peter Vincent in 1992.

Services[edit]

Vincent Aviation serves primarily as a charter airline. It operates scheduled passenger services in Australia to Groote Eylandt and Cairns from Darwin, and charter flights to Halls Creek, Bootu Creek, Lombarding and Fortescue.[2] Vincent also does work in Japan, Ireland, Malaysia and Indonesia. For a few months it operated scheduled flights from Darwin to Dili, Timor Leste, but these ceased early in 2012. Airways New Zealand awarded Vincent the contract to provide air capability for the calibration of instrument approach aids throughout New Zealand.
