Freedom Air

Freedom Air is a New Zealand based low cost, regularly scheduled passenger airline owned by Air New Zealand.

History Freedom Air was modeled after United States company Southwest Airlines, the idea being of providing affordable jet service without the perks that most airlines would offer. It began in 1996 with a single Boeing 737.

Nowadays Freedom Airs fleet has expanded to six Boeing 737s and it is now an international airline, services being provided to several Australian major cities from their base in Hamilton. Domestically, it also serves many New Zealander major cities. It was rumored in 2001 that Qantas was trying to buy the airline over, but the rumored sale never happened. Freedom Air has a contract with Wooster PPC Holland to produce airplane models of their Boeing 737s.
