Heli-taxi's Battle Auckland Congestion

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Auckland’s traffic congestion is so bad that a new market has opened up for heli-transfers to Auckland international Airport.

Albany-based Heletranz is offering business clients a 12 minute service for $365 one-way.

Heletranz owner-operator Tony Monk is right when he says: “I think people in Auckland are just sick to death off traffic and sick to death of the unknown,”

New Zealander’s chose not to elect a National-led government that would have installed Hon. Maurice Williamson as transport minister. Williamson and National were promising to spend all petrol tax collected back on roads and to complete Auckland’s roading network. This would have put a significant dent in Auckland’s congestion problem, but instead we’re now probably going to end up with a Green Party transport minister!

Oh well, 3 more years to wait. In the meantime, we should all be thankful that Johnathon Hunt isn’t around to make frequent use of the $365 heli-taxi’s – he would surely have been in his element.
