新西兰航空计划200万美元众筹购买新飞机

据新西兰航空公司称,公司将为新的购机计划发起一项200万美元的众筹活动。

公司提议将股权众筹作为筹款的一种选择方式,不过公司表示也有独立投资人对他们的融资项目感兴趣。

融资得到的200万美元将用于购买一架全新萨博340QC飞机,用于运送旅客和货物。

公司首席执行官Ewan Wilson表示,此次融资活动将使得所有投资人都有机会成为公司股东,同时,这也意味着公司将会拥有一架备用飞机。

“我们十分渴望能有备用飞机,这样可以应对飞机维修或发生意外的情况。”

Wilson还表示,可以公开对外筹集资金对于中小型企业而言十分有利。

“新西兰在立法改革和允许企业通过众筹筹集不超过200万美元的资金,并将投资额转化为股份的方面,已经起到了很好的带头作用。

目前,金融市场管理部门已经批准了八家股权众筹平台。

Wilson称,公司尚未决定是否会通过股权众筹平台发起众筹,不过目前仍会作为公司的备选方案之一。

“对于航空业来说,200万美元并不是一笔很大数额的资金。此次计划真正特别的地方在于,成千上万的新西兰投资人都将有机会成为航空事业的巡回大使。”

上周,公司发表声明称,公司将会为陶兰加系列航线增设更多飞机。

“对于小规模的投资人来说,这意味着他们将有机会参与到区域航空事业中来。”

Wilson表示众筹成功后购买的那架新飞机将不会用于输送更多乘客。它将只作为目前萨博340A的备用机,以及用于货运市场。

“对于小规模的投资人来说,这意味着他们将有机会参与到区域航空事业中来。”

新西兰区域航空公司于去年成立,专门负责运送但尼丁至纳尔逊,纳尔逊至汉密尔顿,以及纳尔逊到陶兰加的旅客和货物。从5月14日开始,航线将还会经由克莱斯特彻奇。

Kiwi Regional Airlines has announced its plans to raise up to $2 million to buy a second aircraft.

The airline is proposing equity crowdfunding as a fundraising option, but says it has had interest from independent investors too.

The $2 million will be used to buy a new Saab 340 QC to be used for passenger and freight charters.

Kiwi Regional chief executive Ewan Wilson said the campaign will enable potential pledgers to become shareholders in the company and will mean the airline will have a backup plane.

"We are keen to have backup for both planned and unplanned aircraft maintenance."

He said it is great that small to medium companies have the option to raise funds publicly.

"New Zealand has really led the way with legislation changes and enabling approved companies to raise up to $2 million through crowdfunding and turn it into shares."

The Financial Markets Authority currently has eight approved equity crowdfunding platforms.

Wilson said the crowdfunding platform is yet to be decided on, and at this stage, said it remains as an option.

"Two million dollars in an aviation context is really not a lot," he said. "What is really special is that thousands of potential New Zealand investors will be able to be roving ambassadors for the airline."

Last week that the company announced plans to add more flights to its Tauranga network.

What this would mean for Ma and Pa investors is that they will have the opportunity to be involved in a small regional airline.

Wilson said having another aircraft will not be used to expand capacity on its flights. He said the planned purchase of the new plane will be used solely as a back up for its current Saab 340A and to expand the freight market.

"What this would mean for Ma and Pa investors is that they will have the opportunity to be involved in a small regional airline."

Kiwi Regional Airlines launched last year and is a scheduled freight and passenger charter that flies between Dunedin to Nelson, Nelson to Hamilton and Nelson to Tauranga. From May 14 the airline will fly via Christchurch.
