This blog started off by focussing on NZ's smaller 3rd level airlines, past and present. It has evolved to trying to present some record of NZ's domestic airline operations and some of the larger charter operators, interesting NZ international airliner movements and photos I have taken around the country.

Whakatane air service doing well
Sunair may expand in the future
The owners of air service sunair say their new service in Whakatane is going well. Owner and operator Bev Power says the service has been well received by the Eastern Bay public and the services to Napier, Gisborne and Hamilton are frequently used. She says flights to Napier are more expensive than the other two destinations as the route to Hawkes Bay is longer and slightly more expensive to run their planes. When asked if Sunair was thinking of extending their services to other parts of the country, Bev Power says it's definitely a possibility. She says we're always looking at other oppurtunies, so we would want to improve service to other regions, not really main regions.
