The Kig-Yar shuttle is a type of small spacecraft built by the Kig-Yar. They are generally used as transports between a larger space-borne vessel such as a troop carrier and a planet surface.[2] Kig-Yar shuttles could carry six passengers.[1]

During the Battle of the Rubble, Thel 'Vadamee and his team of Sangheili Zealots used a shuttle to escape captivity in Habitat La Paz and hijack an unnamed Kig-Yar transport.[3] Later, they used the shuttle to land at the Redoubt on Metisette,[2] and after capturing Reth, to escape and get back on the transport.[4] Avu Med 'Telcam used one to land on New Llanelli's surface in 2553.[5] Venezia was home to several Kig-Yar shuttles, located in the New Tyne Airfield.[6] Sav Fel operated one to transport Staffan and Edvin Sentzke to the Pious Inquisitor with a shuttle from his missionary ship.[1]
