Paraparaumu-Auckland Service Launched Today

Air New Zealand Link's new Paraparaumu-Auckland service began today. The services is being operated by Air Nelson using Bombardier Q300s. The first flight, NZ8490, which left Paraparaumu for Auckland at 0655, was operated by ZK-NES. The first flight into Paraparaumu, NZ8491, was operated by ZK-NEJ.

The flight south afforded magnificent views of the Volcanic Plateau, with Mount Ngauruhoe, Mount Tongariro and Mount Ruapehu looking stunning.

The weather at Paraparaumu wasn't so great - Kapiti Island appears out of the murk...

The new terminal is at the rear of the Helipro hangar. Air Nelson will operate 18 flights a week between Paraparaumu and Auckland.
