Almost two years after Pine Air had ceased operating, on the 15th of August 1995, the South Waikato News announced that Buckley Air had started direct flights from Auckland to Tokoroa. The company, seeing that Tokoroa did not have an air service, saw an opportunity. “However, the service needs to be used to be kept going”, Darren Mendoza, the Operations Manager told the newspaper. "It will only work with people using it, so it needs to be supported." To stimulate business the company offered discounted fares some 50% cheaper than the standard fare from Rotorua to Auckland. The company offered two return flights on Mondays and Fridays and a return service on Wednesdays. The company continued advertising in the local paper early in 1996 but then the service seems to have petered out.
