1:14 pm on 26 January 2011

The Kapiti Coast is getting a direct air link to Auckland.

Air New Zealand will operate services from Paraparaumu Airport through its subsidiary, Air Nelson.

The first flight will be on Labour Day, 24 October.

Paraparaumu Airport is making improvements to its runway and airspace safety.

The airport was the scene of a mid-air collision between a helicopter and a light plane in 2008, which killed three people.
