Brief History


Skytrans was formed in October 1990 as a charter airline, and began scheduled flights in 1993.
In November 2000, Skytrans merged with AirSwift Aviation, another small regional airline based in Cairns.

In June 2001, Skytrans took over services to Cooktown and Karumba from MacAir Airlines.

In January 2005, the airline began to operate in competition with QantasLink on the Cairns Townsville route, operating from its own terminals in both cities.
 
In December 2006, the airline was acquired from its founders by Australian Aviation Holdings, which also owns Queensland Regional Airlines and Inland Pacific Air.

Skytrans and QRA have now merged under the Skytrans banner.
 
In July 2009 Skytrans changed its IATA designator from NP to Q6.

Skytrans Pty Ltd, the Cairns based, family owned and commercially operated airline which celebrated its 25th year of serving the people and communities of North Queensland, carried its last passenger on Friday 2nd January 2015.
