First Air New Zealand Beta Alia cargo route will be Wellington to Marlborough

Air New Zealand reports Wellington to Marlborough will be the first route for its first all-electric aircraft, the Beta Alia electric take-off and landing aircraft (eVTOL), with cargo-only NZ Post flights starting on the route in 2026.

In late April 2024 Beta Technologies said it completed a crewed, full transition flight of its Alia-250 eVTOL, shifting from vertical lift to forward cruise on fixed wings during the same flight.

The model is one of two aircraft Beta is looking to commercialize in the coming years, along with a conventional takeoff and landing (eCTOL) Alia variant, the CX300, which uses the same airframe as the Alia-250.
