Outer Banks Airlines Announces New Management of Pine Island Airstrip
Conveniently serving our customers from Duck to Virginia

MANTEO, NC: Outer Banks Airlines, a provider of private flights to and from the Outer Banks, announced today that they will be resuming service of Pine Island Airstrip to serve vacationers, guests and locals traveling to the Outer Banks. Until now, First Flight Airstrip in Kill Devil Hills has been the closest available airport. The re-opening of Pine Island Airstrip is much more convenient for those visiting the uppermost northern beaches. The privately owned airstrip has only been used sparingly over the past 8 years. Outer Banks Airlines is excited to manage Pine
Island Airstrip and offer it as an option for its customers.

Twiddy & Company, the largest of the Northern Beaches’ property management and vacation rental companies says, “We’ve been flying with these folks for 20 years. The servicing of the Pine Island Airstrip by Outer Banks Airlines will be much more convenient for our guests, from Duck to the 4WD areas.” Twiddy & Company manages over 1000 rental properties from Nags Head to Carova Beach.

Regular customers Jessica and Chris Cockcroft have been flying with Outer Banks Airlines for several years between their homes in Carova Beach and Connecticut. “We are so pleased that Outer Banks Airlines will be able to fly us into Pine Island instead of Manteo or First Flight airstrip. We will no longer be driving over an hour to our house, after we reach North Carolina. This will save us so much time, as we make this trip routinely.”

Pine Island Airstrip is located between Duck and Corolla, and convenient to many popular destinations:

  • Adjacent to the Hampton Inn Suites
  • 2 miles from the Sanderling Resort
  • 4 miles from Duck
  • 5 miles from Corolla
  • 8 miles from Inn at Corolla Light
  • 9 miles from the four wheel drive areas, The Whalehead Club and Currituck Lighthouse
  • 11 miles from Hilton Garden Inn at Kitty Hawk

Established in 1997, Outer Banks Airlines is the number one provider of private flights to and from the Outer Banks of North Carolina. There is no quicker way to travel to and from the Outer Banks than by personalized, on-demand air charter service. Outer Banks Airlines serves both locals and vacationers, for business, pleasure and emergencies. We also offer the longest private air tours in the area and can accommodate up to 5 passengers per trip. For more information or to book your flight, visit
