Summer export boost for southern produce

3rd December 2020 By Staff Reporter | news@foodticker.co.nz | @foodtickernz

Christchurch Airport will see a boost in cargo flights this summer following further Government support for the International Air Freight Capacity (IAFC) scheme.

Under the extension, the Government would provide financial assistance to all carriers operating cargo flights for another four months from December 2020.

“With summer being the South Island’s peak export season, we will see up to 30 flights a week operate out of Christchurch by Emirates, Air New Zealand, China Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Qantas and Cathay Pacific taking our exports to the world,” said Christchurch Airport’s chief aeronautical and commercial officer, Justin Watson.

“Our produce needs to get out while it’s in the best condition and can fetch top prices.”
