Recently we hosted the competition winners from Nelson Airport's Build a Plane Competition (the competition was held during lockdown).
We gave the three winners their own boarding passes and then escorted them out to our aircraft.
Our crew on the day Josh (First Officer) and Sarah (Captain) spent time talking with the winners and answering all their questions. The winners enjoyed sitting in the Captains seat in the cockpit, and had a go talking on the pa system in the aircraft while Josh was explaining different things to them.
We loved being able to show these winners through our aircraft on a lovely winters day in Nelson. ... See MoreSee Less

A heartfelt thank you to all our passengers who travelled with us in the first week of our resumed scheduled services flying under Covid-19 Level 2 restrictions. The total revenue received from these flights has been donated to charity to help with the supply of food during the Covid-19 crisis. This donation has been made to the Salvation Army for distribution via its network in the three destinations in which Originair operates (Nelson, Wellington, and Palmerston North). "The first week’s flights schedule included the busy Queen’s Birthday weekend which resulted in the revenue donated becoming a substantial figure," says Originair CEO Robert Inglis.
