Originair to resume services soon

New Zealand commuter airline Originair, which was grounded amid safety concerns surrounding its operator, has indicated that it expects to be flying again soon. In February that the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) restricted the operating certificate of charter service Air Freight NZ while it was investigating safety concerns that were brought to its attention.

Originair collaborated with two companies from the Freightways Ltd group – Air Freight NZ Ltd and Fieldair Engineering Ltd – to carry out flight operations and fleet maintenance.

Originair chief executive Robert Inglis said that the air operator had an issue with their certification which meant they were not able to operate for a period of time, prompting a change to another operator.

“We’ve made a lot of progress and it’s an unfortunate situation but we’re close to an outcome,” Inglis said.
