New Kapiti-Christchurch Flights Begin

Today marks the commencement of new Air New Zealand flights between the Kapiti Coast and Christchurch. The flights are being operated by Air Nelson's 50-seat Bombardier Q300s. The first southbound flight was operated by ZK-NEO while ZK-NEF is earmarked to fly the first northbound service.  This is the first time Paraparaumu and Christchurch have been connected by an air service in 23 years. From 1983 until 1990 Associated Air operated a Paraparaumu-Blenheim-Christchurch service (see http://3rdlevelnz.blogspot.co.nz/2010/05/associated-air-paraparaumus-friendly.html). The new Air New Zealand Link service will operate on a daily basis. From today Paraparaumu will have two daily flights to Auckland as opposed to three which have been operating up until now.
