A new jet charter service operating under the banner of Air Hawkes Bay can whisk travellers from Hawkes Bay to Queenstown for breakfast and a round of golf - and have them back for lunch.

The $4 million Cessna Citation owned by GESL Aviation can take up to five passengers from the Bridge Pa or Napier aerodromes.

A return trip to Queenstown costs $7700 or $1540 each for a party of five.
