Air Chathams seeing slow initial booking on planned Auckland-Paraparaumu Kapiti Coast service

    Air Chathams GM Duane Emeny said fare sales for planned Auckland-Paraparaumu Kapiti Coast service are starting slow as many still are not aware of the route being relaunched (NewstalkZB, 06-Aug-2018). As previously reported by CAPA, Air Chathams will launch 36 times weekly Auckland-Kapiti service from 20-Aug-2018, replacing Air New Zealand which withdrew in Apr-2018. “Of course that word of mouth needs to spread so that people who are in Auckland or abroad know about our service and then they can book on it”, he said.
