Paraparaumu today became the 27th destination on Air New Zealands domestic network with the launch of direct services between Paraparaumu (Kapiti Coast) and Auckland.

The new service is being operated by Air New Zealand regional subsidiary Air Nelson, with 18 return flights per week between the Kapiti Coast and Auckland.

Air Nelson General Manager, Grant Kerr, says its an exciting time for those living on the Kapiti Coast, with the new direct service set to save customers time and money. Those living on the Kapiti Coast will no longer have to make the one-hour drive into Wellington Airport - instead theyll be able to fly direct to Auckland in one hour ten minutes, he said.

There is a large catchment area for the new service, with around 110,000 people living in the area that stretches from Levin in the North to Tawa, near Wellington.

I genuinely believe this airport will have a huge impact on the Kapiti Coast for many generations to come, said Kapiti Coast Airport owner, Sir Noel Robinson. The Kapiti community has got so many things going for ita new airport, great rail services and future national roading improvements as well as 46kms of beautiful beaches, wonderful park lands and a fantastic climate. Its a great place to bring up families and now with the airport up and running I know its going to be one of the most sought-after destinations to visit and live in New Zealand.

Passengers choosing the new service instead of a jet service will benefit from Air New Zealands FastBag service - which allows Gold Elite, Gold and Koru members travelling on Link services to drop their bags off at the aircraft and pick them up right after landing. The will also be eligibile for the Starfish Discount, which enables all travellers flying between regional destinations to obtain up to a 30% discount off each flight.
