Air New Zealand B787 | Children’s Flight Drew A Kiwi In The Sky
CHRISTCHURCH: Air New Zealand’s charity has taken a special group of children on a mystery flight adventure. Koru Care, a charity established to give children with illnesses or disabilities the opportunity to see the world, took 50 children on a unique flight path around the centre of New Zealand today.
The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner flight, Registration ZK-NZE and flown by Chief Pilot Captain David Morgan, traced a Kiwi after it departed from Christchurch this morning towards the West Coast of New Zealand, looping around Taranaki then taking a few turns before landing back in Christchurch.
Air New Zealand CEO Greg Foran, who travelled on today’s flight NZ4376 (NZHERO), said that it is uplifting to offer a special charter flight for kids who aren’t usually able to travel offshore, due to medical conditions or family situations.
