Air Napier’s sister company, Ocean Flyer is bringing fully electric seagliders to New Zealand.
Seagliders – The Future of Coastal Travel is here. A new ZERO Emission approach for travel in New Zealand.
We’re changing the way New Zealand thinks about Zero Emission travel. Ocean Flyer will start operating fully electric seagliders in New Zealand from 2025. Seagliders will be sustainable, fast, comfortable and affordable.
The seaglider is a wing-in-ground-effect craft that operates a few meters off the water's surface and couples the high speed of an airplane with the low operating cost of a boat.
Ocean Flyer has signed a $700 million agreement to bring 25 all-electric seagliders to New Zealand from 2025.
