MP for Otaki Nathan Guy would like to say a big thank you to all who signed his petition to help save the Kapiti to Auckland flight service.
“Thanks for the strong support over the last few weeks that has seen 8,007 people sign the petition, and I also acknowledge the many Kapiti businesses that helped collect signatures.
“Today I proudly presented the petition to Parliament where it will be referred to the Finance Select Committee.
“This means the petition will be debated by the members of the committee, across the house, and Air New Zealand may be called in front of Select Committee to justify their decision.
“The petitions strong support will help give Air Chathams the confidence that the community will fill its plane through to Auckland.
“I hope to be in a position to update the community in the next few weeks as to the timing of when Air Chathams can begin its new service.”
