When you think airline handling fees at Christchurch, most people natually think of Air New Zealand Cargo.
But there are actually two ‘cargo handling’ companies on Christchurch Airport that load/unload aircraft and store air-freight.
Air Menzies is the other player and their major airline client is Emirates.
Air New Zealand do the likes of Singapore Airlines.
In an oligopoly situation, rates for products/services tend to remain much the same.
This is no different in this instance, where Air New Zealand and Menzies have very similar cargo-handling tariffs.
Which are moving up shortly (January 2018)
We’ll need to pass-on these new tariffs.
