Air New Zealand to axe Kapiti Coast flights

Air New Zealand is axing its flights to Kapiti Coast from next month.

The last service will operate on April 3.

"Air New Zealand has operated the Kapiti – Auckland service since 2011 and recognises the support the community has given to it," it said in a statement.

"On withdrawal, Air New Zealand will extend support to any other airline that operates the route as it has in other ports."
