Air Nelson, a subsidiary of Air New Zealand is a regional airline based in Nelson, New Zealand. It operates services on provincial routes under the Air New Zealand Link brand. Its main base is Nelson Airport, with hubs at Auckland, Napier, New Plymouth, Wellington, Tauranga and Christchurch.

The airline operates one type of aircraft, the 50 seat Bombardier Q300. This has allowed parent company, Air New Zealand to provide an intensive regional air service that cannot be sustained with regional jet types of this size. Until 2008, Air Nelson operated the 30-seat Saab 340 that took over provincial Fokker F27 services by Air New Zealand in 1990.

Air Nelson Q300's wear the Air New Zealand livery and operate from Kerikeri in the far north of the North Island to Invercargill in the far south of the South Island.
