One Wanaka Flight Cut - Review of Other Flights to Follow

Just days after the Wanaka Chamber of Commerce shared its vision fot an expaded Wanaka Airport, Air New Zealand announced they will cut another flight from the airport's schedule. The flights are opeated by EAgle Air, who increased services to Wanaka last September on a trial basis. Eagle Air has confirmed there has been an increase in bookings to and from Wanaka but not enough to make the service viable. Wanaka Chamber of Commerce president Leigh Stock said the news made no difference to the chamber's desire to allow future generations the potential to expand the airport. "They're talking about a current timetable problem," he said. "We were expecting the Monday afternoon flight wwould be the one they pulled." Air New Zealand intends to review the remaining flights in a months time.
