Coastair vs Coast Air

Each month that I have a historical banner photo there is a certain amount of interest in the airline and people look up the profile...

This month's has a few people fooled and it comes down to Coastair versus Coast Air.

Coast Air was Greymouth based and for a time operated a DHC Twin Otter, initially on services between Greymouth and Christchurch and later, for a short time, between Christchurch and Timaru and then Christchurch and Nelson.

Coastair - as in a single word - operated the Cessna 404 Titan featured on the front page on a scheduled service between Christchurch and Westport though it would call into Greymouth on demand. It was one of the airlines that were sunk by Air New Zealand.
