About Aviair

Aviair, previously known as Slingair, was established in 1984 and has grown to become the first choice for air charter flights and scenic air tours of the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Based in Kununurra, the East Kimberley, with bases at Karratha and Port Hedland in Western Australia and Bankstown in New South Wales, we offer a range of air safaris, Bungle Bungle flights, and tailor made tour itineraries. In addition we operate other essential services including emergency extraction, mail delivery, private charter, regular passenger transport, aerial photography missions and flights to remote communities. Aviair is approved to provide supplementary aerial search and rescue services to the Australian Maritime Safety Authority for search and rescue operations in the East Kimberley including the Purnululu National Park. The recent aquisition of Karratha Flying Services by Aviair sees the introduction of twin turbine engine aircraft into the fleet and the linking of the Pilbara and Kimberley regions.

Kununurra is the gateway to the East Kimberley region. A tropical town of almost 8000 residents, it is 42km from the Northern Territory border and services tens of thousands of tourists each year with the main tourist season being from April to October.

With over 30 years’ experience in remote outback aircraft operations, our personalised service will ensure your scenic air tour, charter flight, or air transfer are completed in comfort and style. Our tailored air safaris and fly/drive tours showcase famous Kimberley attractions, including the Bungle Bungle range in the World Heritage listed Purnululu National Park, Lake Argyle, Mitchell Falls, King George Falls and the Argyle Diamond Mine.

Aviair operates a fleet of Cessna 208 Grand Caravans, which we introduced into Australia in 1994. The Cessna 208 Grand Caravan is a Prop Jet, fully air-conditioned, high wing, PA equipped aircraft. The aircraft offers a centre aisle and greater legroom and headroom than any other scenic flight aircraft in the Kimberley. In addition the safety and reliability record of this aircraft type is one of the highest in its class, thereby maximising passenger safety and comfort. Aviair is proud to operate the newest fleet of aircraft in Kununurra. In 2016 we introduced the GA8 Airvan to our fleet with the purchase of a new airconditioned aeroplane with 7 passenger seats. This is perfect for smaller groups.
