Our Story

Trans Tasman Express began as an idea in 1999 and a Company was formed in New Zealand. In 2000 a name change was undertaken to Jumpjet Airlines and business planning began in earnest. Events like the failure of Ansett, the entrance of Virgin, the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) of 2008, the expansion of international carriers in local markets and the current developing economic crisis in New Zealand and Australia since 2020 have disrupted the aviation market and challenged the concept of introducing a local regional international passenger airline into the Trans Tasman market.  Jumpjet companies are investment ready and as normality has returned to the aviation industry financial and equity structuring has resumed.  The air operator certification path is in progress with legal guidance.
