GCH Aviation’s Garden City Helicopters and the Akaroa Craft Distillery have launched a Christchurch to Akaroa Heli Gin Experience.
Group marketing manager for the GCH Aviation Group, Caroline Blanchfield says the Akaroa Craft Distillery is a new driver of visitors to Akaroa.
Demand from Kiwis for private jet travel to Australia – particularly on a one way basis – is ‘going through the roof’, according to Christchurch-headquartered GCH Aviation.
The company’s group marketing manager, Caroline Blanchfield says that as the eastern states of Australia open up New Zealanders are heading across the Tasman for work, to relocate with permanent jobs or to resume life there.
With limited commercial capacity, as well as a desire to stay in their own bubble, people who can afford it are increasingly attracted do the private jet option.
