We know the Southland community has been asking for a direct service for some time and we look forward to locals getting behind it. The new service answers Southland's growth aspirations, with Invercargill never having been closer to New Zealand's largest city and international gateway. The service will support Southland's tourism ambitions, as well as the ability to transport an extra 500 tonnes of goods a year from Invercargill to Auckland and beyond."
