Kiwi REGIONAL Airlines obtains Air Operating Certificate

New Zealand-owned Kiwi Regional Airlines has received full regulatory approval from the Civil Aviation Authority for its Air Operating Certificate.

Kiwi Regional Airlines becomes the first airline in over a decade to be issued such an approval by the CAA.

Chief Executive Ewan Wilson said: “This is a huge achievement. The extensive vetting required of our people, our aircraft, our procedures and our training to attain this has been exhaustive and I’d like to give full credit to all our staff and the CAA for the lengths they go to, to ensure we operate to the highest standards.”

“The last airline to be given the Part 121 Rating certification was in 2004, with Kiwi Regional Airlines now joining Air New Zealand, Jetstar and others in the large airline category of New Zealand aviation.”

“The CAA Air Operating Certificate also means the airline is now able to fly charter flights throughout the country. That’s something that larger corporates have already shown a lot of interest in and we’re glad we can now assist them with their travel arrangements.”
Kiwi Regional Airlines scheduled flights commence on 27 October and include direct flights between Dunedin and Queenstown, Dunedin and Nelson, and Nelson and Hamilton.
