Company Profile

Multi award winning Aviair is an award winning scenic tour operator, a  regional airline and charter flight operator.  Our head office is in Kununurra, the Kimberley, Western Australia, with a significant base at Karratha, the Pilbara, Western Australia.

Aviair, formerly known as Slingair, was founded by Kerry Slingsby in Kununurra in 1984 and more recently was owned by the Aviator Group, a private equity group based in Sydney. Under local Kununurra ownership since April 2016, Aviair is owned by Michael McConachy (Managing Director) and Geoff Hamilton, who are co-owners of HeliSpirit , also located in Kununurra.  

Aviair’s fleet of 15 aircraft are all fully airconditioned and include; Pilatus PC12 pressurised twin engine turbine aeroplanes, King Air twin turbine aeroplanes, Cessna 208 propjet Caravans and a new GA8 Airvan.

Aviair is the specialist when it comes to touring the spectacular Kimberley region, including the world heritage listed Purnululu National Park where the Bungle Bungle range enthralls visitors. The remote Mitchell Falls and Kimberley Coast are equally spectacular in their natural beauty and an air tour is the best way to explore. With scenic air tours, charters, accommodated air safaris, links to thrilling helicopter flights and walking tours, Aviair can show you the best Northern Australia has to offer.

Aviair’s mission capabilities include; regular public transport (RPT), passenger charter, mining company FIFO, air freight, RFDS clinic flights, RASS remote area services, search and rescue, aerial geophysical work, photography, scenic flights and tailor made itineraries.

Aviair’s business foundation are the twin principles of safety and service – both being areas where we will not compromise. Safety is key in all that we do and leads through to delivering the best service to our customers.

We have our own private airport terminals at Kununurra Airport and Karratha aiport, where we acquired Karratha Flight Services in October 2016. In addition we operate aircraft charter operations from Bankstown in Sydney.

Aviair and our team are committed supporters of the Kimberley and Pilbara community and we support many community organisations and events with sponsorship and services.
