At this time of great sadness, the team at Volcanic Air extend their condolences to all affected by this horrific tragedy.
We appreciate your patience while we provide support to our pilot and passengers who were caught in the eruption, and to our pilots who assisted in the rescue of people from the island immediately after the eruption. We wish to extend our gratitude for the overwhelming support we have received from industry, local operators and the wider community. Volcanic Air has resumed normal flight operations, with the exception of Whakaari/White island, as the New Zealand Police have imposed a ‘No Fly’ zone over this area. Flights to Whakaari/White Island have been suspended. For those who have tours booked to the island, we can accommodate with alternative itineraries. As an alternative to the White Island tours, we have reintroduced our popular Thermal Explorer by Helicopter, which is our most popular Floatplane tour.
