Air Chathams Seeks Interline Agreement
Further talks are planned this month between Air Chathams and Air New Zealand over an inter-line agreement. The national carrier has continued to resist approaches for an arrangement with the new operator to enable passengers to book from Whakatane to other destinations beyond Auckland, in both directions. Air Chathams Chief Executive Craig Emeny says he re-opened the process with Air New Zealand last month, and formal talks are set down for early this month. He says it's not just for Air Chathams' convenience. He says where it is important is to ensure that the Eastern Bay of Plenty is kept on the map, and not bypassed. He says it's important people have information on getting into Whakatane. It's all about visibility.
