In a comment to a customer of their Facebook account  Originair wrote, During Originair’s formative years we have operated our services using the Air Operators Certificate (AOC) of another carrier. For reasons un-associated with Originair this carrier is no longer operating and Originair commenced the process with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to gain our own AOC. This initiative which we believe will give us a sound foundation for the future has taken some months and we are making every effort with CAA’s help to achieve this shortly. We were advised this exercise would be completed by now however, this isn’t the case. Our services, however, are currently available to book for travel from 01 May 2019.

Meanwhile, on services between New Plymouth and Napier the comment

Our services, however, are currently available to book for travel from 01 May 2019 and includes travel between Napier and New Plymouth, Queens birthday weekend and the July School holiday period. Although not ideal, this situation is outside of our control and we thank our loyal passengers for their patience. Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience these delays may cause to your travel plans. We look forward to welcoming you on our Jetstream service in the very near future.
