Air Express - Linking Central Otago to Dunedin

This post was written by Bruce Gavin

In 1988 Mr J. M. Kelly (operating as Air Express) of Arrowtown applied to the Air Services Licensing Authority for an air services licence to operate a twice-daily air service between Queenstown and Dunedin with stops at Wanaka and Alexandra on demand. The service was advertised and got underway in mid-1988. The air service continued to be advertised for some months but presumably traffic was insufficient so was eventually withdrawn.

Have you got any more information of this air service, in particular the start and end dates?
Did the aircraft carry titles?
If you any info please email me at westland831@gmail.com  
Thanks, Steve
