Boe­ing lands in In­ver­cargill

The Southland Times - - News -

A Boe­ing 737-800 Qan­tas air­craft, which was di­verted to In­ver­cargill Air­port when fly­ing from Sydney to Queen­stown on Wed­nes­day, is back in ser­vice. A Qan­tas spokesman said it was di­verted to In­ver­cargill be­cause of an engi­neer­ing is­sue. In­ver­cargill is clas­si­fied as a do­mes­tic air­port and does not have im­mi­gra­tion and cus­toms fa­cil­i­ties, mean­ing pas­sen­gers were re­quired to stay on board the air­craft until cus­toms and im­mi­gra­tion of­fi­cials arrived from Queen­stown. They were to be trans­ported to Queen­stown by bus. The air­craft was in­spected by en­gi­neers on Wed­nes­day night and flew to Christchurch with­out pas­sen­gers.
