KJet ready to spread festive joy on Christmas Day for first time in three years
Popular Queenstown tourism company KJet will open for business on Christmas Day after a three year hiatus from operating on the biggest holiday day of the year.
The world’s first commercial Jet boating company will be operating every hour on the hour as per its normal busy schedule.
Sales and marketing manager Ginny Goding said she was “excited” to be operating on Christmas Day and that staff were already in “great Christmas spirits.”
“Traditionally we have always been open on Christmas Day and we thought it was about time we reinstated that tradition,” she said.
“On a beautiful Queenstown summer’s day KJet will be the perfect Christmas treat.
“We’ve seen a lot more Asian guests coming through who don’t celebrate Christmas so it’s nice to have KJet on offer for them during their holiday.”
To cater to the growing Japanese market KJet offer a specialised ‘Kando’ tour designed for older Japanese guests. One such tour has already been confirmed for Christmas Day.
Ms Goding also expects a lot of ‘walk in’ customers on the day.
“We’ve already got confirmed bookings but being so central we’ll get plenty of people walking past that decide to come for a spin,” she said.
“With our regular trips and flexible booking system customers can choose a time that suits their Christmas Day plans.”
The St Omer Wharf booking office and Discover Queenstown premise at the top of Queenstown Mall will both be open on Christmas Day for booking enquiries.
The KJet experience is an hour-long trip covering 43km through the crystal-clear waters of Lake Wakatipu, and the Kawarau and Shotover rivers.
Customers will enjoy the thrills of 360-degree spins rushing past sheer rock faces.
