Seeing Double in Kaitaia

Barrier Air offered its first double Friday night flight to Kaitaia yesterday evening. Due to increasing passenger numbers on its Auckland-Kaitaia service the airline has added an additional Friday evening service to and from Kaitaia as required. Whenever the 6.15pm departure from Auckland is full the airline will add a 6.30pm departure from Auckland.

Grant Bacon reports, "we had a successful trip up to Kaitaia for the inaugural double evening flights. The weather was great up north. We used Caravans ZK-SDC and ZK-SDD. The two northbound flights were full and we were 3/4 full on the return."
