Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Generally my choice between Nelson and Wellington. All sears are same price whether you're 1st or last booking. Friendly but efficient airline.

This small plane was just the best. Only 9 passengers plus crew, but stable and safe. I have a very quick journey with no fuss and two awsome pilots. Thanks

"small 12 seater aircraft, weight is a serious matter so don't take too much luggage or if you do, expect to be charged for it."
