Air Peace - Flying in New Zealand

So, I was doing some research yesterday on who is flying from/to for certain airports in New Zealand and I noticed that Air Peace (registered in Nigeria) was flying a 737 CHC-AKL return 1-2 times a day for the past week, along with CHC-PMR and AKL-PMR return.

Anyone know anything about it? My first thought was a wet lease for DeathStar, but then I remembered that they don't fly Palmy.

No idea. I was just looking at flight numbers on flightaware and it stood out as I didn't recognise the airline code. But an example flight here

Following mwenenzi’s line of thinking, enter AWK71 into Flightradar24 or Google “Flightradar24 AWK71” and you will see that it is almost identical to your posted example.

Interesting. That fits in with the 2 flight codes as well - APK71 & APK75 vs AWK71 and AWK75.

Sooooo, I'm looking at an error of some kind at flightaware?


(Putting AWK71 into flightaware gives interesting results too: a 7 minute flight 4 years ago & nothing since)

There are many instances of multiple airlines with the same code. They have rules intended to ensure such cases are not operating in the same geographic region.
