Upping the Frequency


Covid has certainly had an impact on our regional airlines with a number running reduced schedules. The Omicron outbreak has certainly dampened not only airline operations but also news to report on this blog. At last a little bit of news.

Barrier Air is upping the frequency of its flights to Whitianga. From the 1st of December there will be three return flights between Auckland and Whitianga each weekday, one on Saturdays and two on Saturdays. 

The schedule will see flights departing Auckland at 7.00am Monday to Friday, 7.30am on a Saturday and 3.30pm and 5.30pm Sunday to Friday. The return flights depart Whitianga at 8.00am Monday to Friday, 8.30am on a Saturday and 4.30pm and 6.30pm Sunday to Friday. 

Barrier Air commenced the service on the 16th of December 2021. The airline is very pleased on how ther service is working and numbers building.

Meanwhile the company's Facebook page is hinting a new destination later in the year.... I wonder if the photo they posted is a clue...

  1. Didn't they say last year just after starting Whitianga service, they wanted to start Tauranga to Whitianga and Great Barrier?
