Dear Customers

Norfolk Island Airlines advises that effective from the 18th March 2018 the airline is cancelling all passenger services.

Over the last 12 months the airline has endeavoured to provide Norfolk Island with additional independent passenger services to Auckland and Brisbane, however the airline has experienced significantly higher that planned operating costs and considers that continued passenger operations are not sustainable.

The decision to cancel these passenger services has not been made lightly and has been made in the best interests of all of our customers to ensure all passengers receive a full refund. Norfolk Island Airlines appreciates the effect of these cancellations on customers and will be working tirelessly over the next two weeks to ensuring all affected passengers are refunded*.

The last Norfolk Island Airlines scheduled service will be ON346 Norfolk Island to Brisbane on the 17th March 2018

Where/when was that Press Release published? Searched ( maybe not well enough) but can't find it.

Gee... now let me see, if there had only been a way of foreseeing that it wouldn't work commercially... like say, THE THREE PREVIOUS TIMES IT HAS NOT WORKED OUT... I rest my case, these people are slow learners.
