A Freedom Air Boeing 737-300
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 (such as frequent flyer miles, inflight movies, and complimentary meals). It began operations in 1996 with a single Boeing 757. By 2004, Freedom Air's fleet had expanded to five Boeing 737-300 aircraft.
By 2004 it was providing direct non-stop services to the Australian cities Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sydney, and Melbourne from their base in Hamilton as well as Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin, and Palmerston North.
The Freedom Air International fleet consists of 5 Boeing 737-300 aircraft (at April 2005). The airline has 5 Airbus A320-200 aircraft on order.
