Council Subsidy for Airline?

June 12, 2018

The Kāpiti Coast District Council is considering subsidising Air Chathams wanting to provide flights to Auckland.

 

Negotiations between Air Chathams and the Kāpiti Coast Airport have been ongoing

 

On Thursday the council will consider a proposal to offer financial support for the service.

 

Mayor K Gurunathan says the airport already made some concessions so the route is profitable for Air Chathams.

 

It also hoped help would come from central government, through the regional development fund.

 

In the meantime he says it was in the region's interests for the council to step up.

 

Mr Gurunathan says the council would make a decision in the next couple of weeks, but he couldn't comment on how much money the council would be willing to spend.
