Chamber Welcomes Air Chathams to Kapiti


KAPITI, MONDAY 2 JULY 2018 - The Kāpiti Coast Chamber of Commerce is delighted to welcome Air Chathams to the Kapiti Coast.

Air Chathams will begin operating from Paraparaumu on the 20th August 2018, offering 36 flights a week between Auckland and Kapiti - up to 1,152 seats for travellers, making it a more frequent service than the previous Air New Zealand flights from Kapiti.

During the working week, there will be three flights per day to and from Auckland, the first flight departing at 6:45 am and the last flight departing Auckland at 6:10 pm. Julene Hope, Co-Chair of the Kāpiti Coast Chamber of Commerce, says this is extremely positive for Kapiti businesses.

“A direct daily link with our largest city is crucial to developing an economically sustainable district where people choose to live, work, and play.

“It’s fantastic Air Chathams has taken into account the desire of business travellers to have earlier flights to Auckland - now they can be in the CBD for the start of the business day. Both the Kāpiti Coast District Council and Air Chathams have recognised the economic opportunities of having a direct link between Kapiti and Auckland, now it is up to our community, and business travellers to make the most of this service and give it warm Kapiti welcome.

Established in the mid-1980s on the Chatham Islands, flying live crayfish to the mainland, Air Chathams is New Zealand’s largest privately-owned airline, operating more than 80 flights per week between Auckland, Whakatane, Whanganui, Wellington, Christchurch and the Chathams.

The Kāpiti Coast Chamber of Commerce exists to advance the economy by creating wealth and employment and solve local business issues by providing a collective voice for business in Kapiti. Over 300 members in Kapiti belong to the Kāpiti Coast Chamber of Commerce to stay connected, network and gain knowledge and support from our local membership.
