The Colours of Metros in Hokitika - 1

Hokitika first saw Air Nelson's Metroliners on the 20th of November 1988 when ZK-NSW did a familiarisation flight to Hokitika under the command of Captain Paul Kolisch. Scheduled flights started the next day, some 7 weeks after Air Nelson had replaced Air New Zealand's Friendship service on 31 October 1998.

The timetable showed there were 19 flights per week as detailed below...
