Visitors to New Zealand's regional centres might be interested to know that Jetstar New Zealand has just announced regional flying in New Zealand on Q300 aircraft commencing in December. Routes currently being assessed are Hamilton, Palmerston North, Napier, New Plymouth, Nelson and Invercargill. All flights will be linked to Jetstar's existing network.

I believe they'll be operated by Qantaslink on a couple of the spare 300s. AirNZ have been killing on these routes so it will be interesting to see it all play out. A little competition will go a long way

They'll be using some of the 300s currently stored in Tamworth. Will be interesting to see what they look like in Jetstar colours.

This is great news because the regional AirNZ fares can be pretty ridiculous, a 30min flight from WLG to PMR costs over $150.. plus you'll get to earn QF points and SC on these too presumably if you book on the Starter Plus or Starter Max fares.

And fingers crossed some nicer connections with QF and EK - got a flight from SYD to PMR next week with a 4hr connection in CHC..
