Four airliners...

Departing Whanganui for Auckland this morning was Air Chathams' Saab 340 ZK-KRA... Looks to be an exciting year for Air Chats...

After operating Originair services from Nelson to both Palmerston North and New Plymouth, the company's BAe Jetstream 31 ZK-JSH is seen here this afternoon operating air2there's service from Nelson to Paraparaumu to Blenheim. It later did a Blenheim-Paraparaumu-Nelson service. I see someone has made a comment suggesting Originair/air2there should look to do Paraparaumu-Christchurch. Not a bad tour

Arriving into Wellington from Hokitika, I mean Canberra, Singapore Airlines' Boeing 777-200 9V-SQL

Sounds Air Caravan ZK-PDM roaring off to the South Island from Wellington... I'll be following it on the ferry tomorrow


  1. I will be flying Singapore Airlines in 3 weeks WLG/CBR in J Class. I will be a nice change to land in Canberra as oppose to Melbourne or Sydney. They are offering affordable J Class fare between CBR/WLG/CBR if booked in advance.

  2. I wonder why Origin are operating the Air 2 there Caravan routes from PPQ?
