Early indications are the aircraft will fly to New Zealand from Brest in France via Italy, Crete, Jordan, Bahrain, India, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia and across the Tasman to New Zealand where it will become ZK-SDG, Barrier Air's fifth Cessna Grand Caravan.

Barrier Air currently connect Kaitaia, Great Barrier Island and Whitianga with Auckland as well as offering flights between North Shore and Great Barrier Island. The airline has announced it will start flying to Tauranga in spring and increase its flight frequency to Whitianga in December.
