AIR FREIGHT SERVICES
A consequence of the closure of New Zealands borders was the drastic reduction in International flights and therefore freight capacity. The situation through level 4 was difficult but moving into level 3 we will see an improvement in capacity with an extra 56 weekly cargo flights to and from New Zealand and with more to come. These flights are part of a government short term support scheme valued at 330 million NZD, as the market recovers, the need for funding will be reassessed, 600 million NZD has been set aside for the aviation sector as part of the 12.1 billion COVID-19 support package.
