Nelson Real Estate has been given a real boost in the arm. Everyones hopes that we will finally get “decently priced” airfares, will mean even more people will (“can now afford to..”) see the advantages of FIFO situations. While the family live a lifestyle in the Nelson region, a central bread winner can easily afford to work in Auckland, Wellington or even Christchurch (once the inevitable competition kicks in...) yet fly home in the weekends / when they have their time off.

Nelsonians have long tolerated trips to main centres being more costly than an advertised international airfares to Australia, Fiji or afield.

With the entry recently of OriginAir, now Jetstar and Kiwi Regional Airlines still to come before the end of the year, times have never looked brighter for New Zealands 4th busiest airport.1

The only really puzzling thing for me is the lack of any Nelson <-> Christchurch flight sectors, as my (& friends I chatted to today) experience all the time, the first “Grabaseat” AirNZ tickets to sell out and therefore never be available when you log on yourself to check are those on this sector! Maybe someone out there in the airline industry can enlighten me as to why, eg; landing fees at Christchurch, etc?
