Air New Zealand to operate Wildfoods flight from Wellington

Air New Zealand will operate a special flight between Wellington and Hokitika to help get festival goers to the Wildfoods Festival in March.

The Grabaseat Hokitika Wildfoods Festival Flight will depart Wellington at 10am on Saturday, March 13, with the service returning the same day at 6.25pm.

The flight will be operated by one of the airline's 68-seat ATR aircraft.

Flight and ticket packages are available for sale via Air New Zealand's Grabaseat website for $299 and include transfers to and from Hokitika Airport. There is also an option for people to fly from Auckland and connect onto the Wellington-Hokitika Wildfoods flight.

Air New Zealand chief customer and sales officer Leanne Geraghty says the Hokitika Wildfoods Festival is one of the biggest events on the West Coast calendar.

"We're proud to get behind this iconic event which is unique to the West Coast. Events like the Wildfoods Festival give Kiwis a great reason to travel domestically and support our regions. By operating this special flight between Wellington and Hokitika we can help get even more people to the event and experience the West Coast."

"We've enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Air New Zealand and it's great they will once again support the Wildfoods Festival with a special service. I look forward to welcoming guests when they arrive in Hokitika on March 13," says Mayor of Westland Bruce Smith.
