But are they going to restart operations?

Originair summer flights between New Plymouth and Nelson have been temporarily grounded. The airline will resume direct services between New Plymouth and Nelson when New Plymouth's muilt-million dollar new airport terminal is opened early next year. Originair's flights to New Plymouth have been affected by Jetstar's plan to stop its services to regional New Zealand at the end of November, managing director Robert Inglis said. "Their handling company, Swissport, has carried out check-in and tarmac services for both Jetstar and Originair. This Swissport service will also be terminating at the end of this month when Jetstar services cease. "[We] have initially engaged staff at Palmerston North and will do likewise at New Plymouth and Napier in the future. At New Plymouth we plan to coincide this step with the opening of the new terminal early next year." Passengers on affected flights have already been rebooked on to alterative flights at no additional cost. "Originair has enjoyed providing a direct link to Nelson for New Plymouth travellers and look forward to doing so in the future from the new terminal." The airline launched a direct flight between Nelson and New Plymouth in 2017.
