Buy Fly My Sky with Alternative Airlines

Founded in 2007, Fly My Sky was an airline based in Auckland, New Zealand. From its hub at Auckland Airport, the airline flew to a small number of domestic destinations, including both airports in the Great Barrier area — Great Barrier Aerodrome and Okiwi Airfield. 

The airline was originally part of the scenic flight company Mountain Air. However, in 2007, when the company split into two Fly My Sky became independent. Mountain Air continued operating scenic flights under the 'Mountain Air' name, whereas Fly My Sky became a traditional scheduled passenger airline, operating under the name 'Great Barrier Xpress'.

In 2008, the airline rebranded from 'Great Barrier Xpress' to 'Fly My Sky', which is what is the name that it operated as until the airline ceased.

Fly My Sky ceased its operations in 2021.
