History[edit]

The airline started operations on 25 June 2015.[2] Its primary contract is with the courier division of the Freightways Group and New Zealand Post. It is a wholly owned company by a 50/50 Joint Venture. The Boeing 737 has a payload of 17 tonnes it carries 11 cargons of freight on each trip. Due to the rapid growth of online shopping there was a need to replace the smaller ageing Convair CV580s operated by Air Freight NZ with the larger Boeing 737s.[3]

Destinations[edit]

Parcelair operates freight services to Auckland, Christchurch and Palmerston North.[4]
