Fly My Sky is a small airline based in Auckland, New Zealand. The airline operates between Auckland, Whangarei and Great Barrier Island. The company, registered in 2007, is owned by Keith and Robyn McKenzie. The airline grew out of Mountain Air.
In 1998 Mountain Air added two Britten Norman Islanders and two Piper Aztec aircraft to its fleet and extended its services to provide New Zealand wide charter flights. Scheduled services were also developed to provide several flights a day between Auckland Airport, Whangarei and Great Barrier Island in the Hauraki Gulf branded as Great Barrier Xpress. Whangarei was withdrawn in 2008.
The airline serves both Great Barrier airports, Claris and Okiwi. Special window kits have been put into the two Islander aircraft to provide more windows so passengers can have better views. Two more Britten-Norman Islander aircraft were added to the fleet in 2006 and 2007.
In June 2008, Mountain Air rebranded Great Barrier Xpress as Fly My Sky.
Fly My Sky operates out of Auckland Airport and flies scheduled daily flights to the following destinations:
One of the airline's Britten-Norman Islander aircraft had a rough landing at Okiwi airport in January 2013. No one was injured in the incident. The airline's CEO said the incident was caused by wind shear.
