Norfolk Island AirlinesThe Norfolk Island Airlines
The Norfolk Island Airlines (Norfolk Island) has declared that all scheduled flights will be cancelled effective March 18. One of the airline's statements was that its last such trip would take place on March 17 as ON346 Norfolk Island flights to Brisbane Int'l, Australia. According to senior managers, the non-profitability and the ensuing closure of the Auckland Int'l, New Zealand line, caused by an increased cost of ownership, made the Brisbane facility unprofitable.
This was the hard choice it had made to withdraw from the public transport sector. Without AOC, Norfolk Island Airlines had depended on the B737-300 aircraft charters operated by Nauru Airlines (ON, Nauru). Situated 1,400 kilometers off the eastern Australian Pacific Ocean coastline, Norfolk Island Air New Zealand (NZ, Auckland Int'l) will be the only airline to do so beyond March 18.
Services are provided to Sydney Kingsford Smith (3x weekly) and Brisbane Int`l (2x weekly).

The Norfolk Island Airlines shut down one year after take-off
The Norfolk Island Airlines flew last weekend, just a year after takeoff. It was established to make sure non-stop services to New Zealand continue after Air New Zealand discontinues this service, says NZI. The company suspended New Zealand services in January.
Its CEO, Glen Buffett, said they found the float of overhead resulting from Canberra's overly burdensome steerage of the island. "There are many things in the system changes here that we didn't realize last year and in trying to handle it, and in the end it just turned out to be too hard and unsustainable," said Glen Buffet.
