Kiwi Regional Airlines, inaugural flight, KRL 001 operated from Dunedin to Queenstown this morning. Weather conditions at Queenstown delayed the departure of the flight which finally got airborne from Dunedin an hour late at 8.14am.

For passengers on board the first flight however, there was a more pleasant view...
It seems the weather at Queenstown continued to play havoc as the flight did not land until 9.37am. Nonetheless Kiwi Regional can be justifiably pleased their airline is finally airborne!
