  1. Also planning route expansion which is good to see. Looks like it's time for a new aircraft

    1. If anyone has missed it, they have been asking people to share their ideas for new routes on their Facebook page:


  2. Looks like Tuesdays and Saturdays are the days off for the staff no flights! Shame they can't run a daily schedule NSN-PMR like Air NZ did.

  3. It's hard to believe that it's almost a year now that we first got that "scary" shocking news that eagle air was to be closed down.... and along with it, some airfields to be without the presence of the koru to grace them.... and some uncertainty. .? Now... might be a good time to have a years recap. the winners the losers and the surprises that we have had...?

  4. Tuesdays and Saturdays are the days with the low loads, statistically speaking. It will be interesting to see what happens to all the small operators once AirNZ and Jetstar engage in an airfare-battle.
