Four years on, and in 2017 Flight proudly opened New Zealand first PET wash plant at our manufacturing facility in Wellington. Built with the support of the Government Waste Minimisation Fund and more than $9m worth of our own investment funds Flight now has the capacity to use all of its recycled PET to meet New Zealand total demand for PET based packaging products.

Recycling | Flight has now closed the loop for recycling of PET packaging in New Zealand. In 2013 Flight introduced RPET to NZ manufactured packaging when it started importing hot washed RPET flakes, RPET film extrusion and thermoforming for use in its manufacturing process in 2013.
