Air New Zealand drops Christchurch to Kapiti flights

Air New Zealand will cut flights between Christchurch and the Kapiti Coast, due to a lack of demand.

The Kapiti Coast Airport to Christchurch route had been operating at a loss since it was launched two years ago, a statement from the airline said.

"Unfortunately the Paraparaumu to Christchurch route has been operating regularly at little over half full and that's simply not sustainable long term,"  group general manager for New Zealand and Pacific Islands Louise Struthers said.

You are invited to fly the route one last time, before it closes for good.


Air NZ use Bombardier Q300 aircraft for the route, but any similar aircraft type will be fine.
