Airlines that fly within the Northern Territory

The Northern Territory is a large territory in the central and central northern regions of Australia. Tourists are drawn to the region to discover the ‘real outback’, including an iconic natural landscape, ancient Aboriginal culture, and unique wildlife.

Many tourists looking to explore the region will fly to Alice Springs, a remote town and popular gateway for exploring the ‘Red Centre’, the country's interior desert region. There are a few direct flights from the largest cities in Australia (Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and Perth), but in many instances a connecting flight to Alice Springs will need to be made at Darwin.

If you’re looking for flights to some of the smaller and more remote towns and islands within the Northern Region, then you’ll want to land at Darwin, where you can then catch a flight with Airnorth or Air Tiwi — the only two airlines which operate scheduled passenger flights to the more remote communities within the territory.

Air Tiwi

Based at Darwin International Airport, Air Tiwi operates about 50 scheduled passenger flights a week, between Darwin and communities located on the Tiwi, South Goulburn and Croker islands, as well as a number of remote communities in the northern region of Arnhem Land.

Example routes:

Darwin ➡ Maningrida

Darwin ➡ Warruwi (South Goulburn Island)

& many more!
