Scheduled flights are operated by Air New Zealand Link, using Bombardier DHC-8-Q300 from Auckland, and Sounds Air, operating from Wellington using Pilatus PC-12. The airport is a popular destination for private jets, due to its close proximity to trout fishing, golf, hunting, skiing and luxury resorts.
