Airnorth operates daily flights Sunday to Friday to Gove from Cairns (1 hour 40 minutes) and Darwin (1 hour 10 minutes), which connect with flights from other capital cities. AirNorth also operates a range of regular air services from Darwin to major East Arnhem communities including Milingimbi, Galiwinku and Groote Eylandt.
Gove Airport offers city-standard facilities to the estimated 100,000 passengers who currently travel to and from Nhulunbuy each year. The runway is one of only a handful in the Northern Territory capable of safely landing larger jet aircraft such as the Boeing 737-400 series. In line with larger city airports, Gove Airport provides dedicated security-restricted areas for commercial aircraft and a separate dedicated area for smaller general aviation craft. A number of charter companies provide air services to East Arnhem communities and homelands.
