Continued Flight Cancelations in Queenstown

Passengers continue to wait at Queenstown Airport as Air New Zealand grounds ATR flights a second day, with no end in sight.  The airline found hairline cracks around the cockpit windows on one aircraft while performing routine maintenance.  This discovery prompted the airline to cancel six inbound and five outbound flights, all but one heading to Christchurch, with the other heading to Wellington.  Naoto Unno, duty manager at Air New Zealand Queenstown, reported on the cancelations and could not say when the flights would be operational.

Lee Evans and Rachel Southee, of Wellington, were supposed to fly out from Queenstown to Wellington yesterday.  Their flight was due to leave at 1:50 pm and they were then put on a flight departing at 2:20 pm.  This caused their arrival home to be three hours late.  An Queenstown Airport retailer said she was busier than usual with so many people having to sit around at the airport for an hour and a half or more.
