This exciting development complements INFLITE’s existing operations and support its brands including INFLITE Experiences, Nelson Tasman Air, Skydive Abel Tasman, Skydive Franz Josef, Mount Cook Ski Planes and Helicopters and Skydive Mt Cook.

This expansion has come through INFLITE’s appointment as the exclusive GSA (General Sales Agent) for the Air Chathams fleet.

“Premium service delivery is core to our business as is the reliability and experience in corporate charters that Air Chathams brings to the sector.  The fact Air Chathams operations span the length and breadth of the country is a great fit for us.  We are excited to expand our charter offering for the benefit of our customers, INFLITE and Air Chathams” says Paul Aston, Charter Manager at INFLITE.

Duane Emeny, General Manager of Air Chathams agrees. “We look forward to further growing our charter capacity in conjunction with INFLITE, especially knowing their reputation and dedication to a high level of customer service.  It’s great to take up the opportunity to work together as both companies have extensive experience throughout New Zealand and are flexible enough to meet the demands of the sector in terms of location, size and aircraft capability”.
