RAROTONGA, Cook Islands (December 13, 1999 – Cook Islands News)--- K2000 Airline may begin servicing Rarotonga if it can obtain a license to operate here.

The airline has applied to be licensed under the Cook Islands Air Services Licensing Act 1984.

Secretary of the Ministry of Transport, Aukino Tarea, told Cook Islands News that the K2000 Airline has not yet supplied the Ministry with enough necessary information and technical details for the license to be approved.

The ministry has requested information on the K2000 Airline's ability to cover liabilities which could arise out of loss or damage to property, and death and injury in the operation of the airline’s services.

Also requested is information about the airline’s proposed ground handling services in Rarotonga and Auckland, ticketing agents and procedures, and technical support and services.

This information is needed to ensure that safety requirements are met and that the reliability of the proposed services to be provided is assured.

To date the ministry has not received any new information from the airline and until it is K2000 will not be able to provide Rarotonga with its proposed services at cut prices, such as those currently being offered in New Zealand and Australia.
