Further expansion came for the company on the 1st of November 2012 when the company took over Salt Air’s Kerikeri-Whangarei-North Shore air service. This service, established in May 2008, saw Salt Air aircraft flying twice daily return weekday services and a Sunday service from Kerikeri and Whangarei to North Shore with a shuttle bus taking passengers to and from the Auckland CBD via the Busway. This meant Whangarei passengers could get to the Auckland city centre in about an hour.
