History[edit]

The airline was launched in December 2004 it was the brainchild of former Paraparaumu Airport owner Murray Cole who saw a gap in the market by providing a quick alternative to Wellington Airport. Flying started with just one 14 seat Grand Caravan later two Chieftains were added. The company started with flights to Blenheim, Nelson, Masterton, Wellington and Palmerston North but cut Masterton and Palmerston North within about a year when it found there was no market.[3]
