Press Release – Air Chathams
Six Months And 20,000 People Flying with Air Chathams
Air Chathams has hit the six month mark for its Kāpiti – Auckland route after starting services on the 20th August 2018.
The Kāpiti Coast community has welcomed the airline with open arms. Initial flight schedules have settled after initial trials of flights that had not been offered previously to gauge the community’s appetite for those services. Air Chathams is flying 26 flights a week, 7 days a week and as expected the most popular flights are the early morning flight to Auckland and return evening service to Kāpiti Airport to cater for business travellers.
During those first six months, the Kāpiti Coast community has backed the airline with 911 flights flown for the period, carrying approximately 20,000 people. Initial discounted fares attracted many to the airline and the average price for a fare for the first six months of operating is under $140 each way. Positive feedback and comments have reached Air Chathams through Facebook reviews and comments and Duane Emeny, General Manager, is happy with how the service is developing.
