Seniors get their Silver Wings!

3 November 2004

Origin Pacific Airways and Nelson Grey Power Association give Seniors their Silver Wings!

Origin Pacific has developed a discounted air travel programme called Silver Wings, especially for Grey Power members nationwide. Grey Power, an organisation renowned for its fierce advancement, support and protection of the welfare and well-being of New Zealand's 50 pluses, came to Origin Pacific for support.

Origin Pacific responded with Silver Wings, a substantially discounted airfare offering for Grey Power members travelling mid-week (Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays) on Origin. The Silver Wings programme eliminates booking fees on all Silver Wings travel as well. All this represents a great savings for Grey Power members nationwide.

Mike Pero, Marketing Director for Origin Pacific Airways, says "Origin Pacific Airways is delighted to be able to offer a very special deal to a deserving group that quietly contributes so much to the New Zealand community."

Pero goes on to say "We understand that many Grey Power members no longer work full-time, so Silver Wings presents a great match between Origin Pacific's less busy times and Seniors' more flexible lifestyles. They work hard to balance staying in touch with friends and family and the need for financial prudence. Silver Wings will really assist them to do this."

Nelson Grey Power President and National Grey Power Board Member, Gordon Currie says "this is another great example of how working locally can benefit members nationally. We're all delighted to have Origin Pacific on board offering discounted travel to our members and complimenting our growing number of discount providers. Grey Power members now total more than 80,000 nationwide.

Silver Wings fares can be purchased direct from Origin Pacific's sales centre 0800 302 302 or any travel agent and require a valid Grey Power membership number to authenticate the travel discount.
