Airwork Holdings Ltd

Our history

New Zealand has one of the oldest, strongest and most diverse aviation traditions of any country in the world. This tradition was born of necessity with New Zealand’s varied topography, its isolation from the rest of the world, and its heavy dependence upon land-based economic activities. Airwork is one of New Zealand’s oldest aviation companies and reflects these traditions.

Airwork began its operations out of Wellington in 1936 and over the past 76 years the company has adapted to meet this constantly evolving aviation market.

The Airwork Group’s head office is located at the base of its parent company, Airwork Holdings Limited, at the Auckland Heliport at Mechanics Bay in downtown Auckland.

Airwork’s central administration is located at Ardmore Airport in South Auckland, New Zealand. It also has operational bases in Auckland City at the Auckland Heliport at Mechanics Bay and at Auckland Airport as well as bases for operations at Wellington, Timaru, Queenstown, Christchurch, Brisbane and Perth Airports and in Papua New Guinea.
