Nantay Pty. Ltd., trading as Maroomba Airlines since 1998, is a small airline and air charter company based in Perth, Western Australia.


Founded in 1985 as Maroomba Aviation, then renamed Maroomba Air Services in 1997, the airline operates ad hoc charter services around Western Australia.

It currently operates fly-in fly-out mining charter contracts and also operates a Beechcraft Super King Air and a Hawker 850XP business jet on behalf of the Western Australian government for ministerial transport around the state. In November 2008, Maroomba was selected to operate the Rio Tinto LifeFlight jet, on behalf of the Royal Flying Doctor Service, Western Operations.[1] The Hawker 800XP is the first jet aircraft to be used by the RFDS and allows faster transport of patients around the expanses of WA.[2][3]
