Interislander celebrates its 50th

Interislander celebrates its 50th

Interislander will be celebrating its 50th anniversary with staff (both past and present), passengers and freight customers on Monday 13 August – 50 years to the day since the Aramoana made its first sailing from Wellington to Picton.

Between 7am and 8am on Monday morning, staff and passengers will be handing out special birthday cupcakes at the Wellington Terminal before the 8:15am Kaitaki sailing. Radio will be broadcasting live from the terminal with competitions and promotional giveaways, and Kaitaki’s onboard ukulele band will be helping to spread the birthday cheer. Additionally, players from some of our sponsored sports groups, including the Wellington Lions; Haier Pulse and Wellington Saints have been invited to come to the terminal to help celebrate the milestone.

The 2:30pm Aratere sailing from Wellington to Picton on Monday afternoon has been designated the ‘official birthday sailing’. Past employees and people associated with Interislander will join us onboard to recount some memories of our past 50 years. There will again be a live radio broadcast from the Wellington Terminal and birthday cupcakes will again be handed out to passengers.

Additionally, there will be live radio broadcasts from the Picton Terminal before the 10:25am Aratere sailing and the 1:05pm Kaitaki sailing.

ENDS
