NZB Airfreight Announces Auckland to Christchurch Return Service

28 September 2023

Flights between Auckland and Christchurch will commence on 10 October

NZB Airfreight, one of the leading equine airfreight services in Australasia, has announced a new regular flight route for domestic travellers.

The Auckland to Christchurch and return service will commence in early October and offer a regular on demand flight for those travelling across the Cook Strait.

NZB Airfreight Manager Sharon McDowell commented on the new route aimed to service the racing and equestrian sports industries.

“The new domestic flight between Christchurch and Auckland is going to provide trainers, owners and riders a more efficient service when moving horses between the North and South islands.”

“We’re glad to be able to commit to providing this route on a regular basis and on demand when there are upcoming carnivals, shows or events.

“This will be a great option for not just those targeting Cup and Show Week, but also for our equestrian sports community who regularly travel around the country.

“The flight which is just over an hour itself, could save hours or even days on the road for these horses, prioritising their wellbeing and safety,” added McDowell.

The first flight between Auckland and Christchurch with NZB Airfreight will commence on 10 October.
