Marg Kronfeld Gained Invaluable Experience with Air New Zealand

​BK Enterprises Company Director Marg Kronfeld is close to the New Zealand tourist industry, having worked for Air New Zealand for over 15 years. National airline Air New Zealand has been voted the third best long haul carrier by United Kingdom newspaper The Telegraph in 2012, which touted New Zealand as the best country in the world to visit on vacation. New Zealand enjoys visitors primarily from Australia, China, the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan and Germany, while France, Korea, Canada and India also enjoy visits to the island paradise. Only China and India require short term visas for New Zealand visits. New Zealand was voted a most favorite destination by Conde Nast readers in 2008, and retained second place in 2009. The Daily Telegraph poll of United Kingdom voted New Zealand the best overseas holiday destination in 2007.

New Zealand also urges kiwis to travel within their own country instead of going overseas, and encourages air travel within New Zealand. Passenger trains are also available on a limited basis between Auckland and Wellington, Picton and Christchurch and Christchurch and Greymouth. These offer daytrips which can cost more than an inner country air flights. Comparatively, air travel within country costs the equivalent of a trip to Australia. New Zealand citizens like Marg Kronfeld and international visitors as well enjoy camping, hiking, and more rigorous activities including mountain climbing, rock climbing, cycling, rafting and water activities. Winter tourism from Australia and ecotourism, which leads to longer trip duration, has also increased.

Marg Kronfeld Dedicated Member of the New Zealand Community

Marg Kronfeld was born in the United Kingdom in 1965. Kronfeld and her family immigrated to New Zealand in 1971, and she grew up and was educated on the North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand. The North Shore is the fourth most populated city in New Zealand, a suburban area north of downtown Auckland. It is accessible to the Auckland metropolitan area by the Auckland Harbor Bridge across the Waitemata Harbor, and by the Upper Harbor Bridge which connects to Auckland’s western suburbs.

The North Shore was a European rural area, popular with the city of Auckland residents on weekends, who came to enjoy the beaches and simple life, as there was no significant employment in the area. Once the Auckland Harbour Bridge was built in 1959, North Shore began to grow exponentially as a bedroom community for those working in Auckland. Auckland’s rush hour transportation difficulties aside, Marg Kronfeld can avail herself of regular ferry service from the North Shore to Auckland City from a variety of locations.

Over 22,000 businesses are in North Shore city, and it is easy to see why, with the burgeoning number of retailers and with the boom in housing which have grown up in the Albany area, that Marg Kronfeld would choose to live and work in her hometown. Kronfeld opted to gain business management experience upon her graduation from Massey College working as an administration manager, moving then to work in the tourism industry for a number of years for Air New Zealand. Kronfeld gained experience in a number of business enterprises after leaving the airline industry.

Traditional Maori Crafts and Arts Inform the Life of Marg Kronfeld

The New Zealand of Marg Kronfeld of BK Enterprises in Auckland, New Zealand, has only recently, from the 1960’s onward, emerged from a predominantly rural, noneducated population. As urban culture began to dominate in the 60’s, an involved curiosity regarding New Zealand’s origins and historical references emerged. Cultural icons, or kiwiana, have emerged from a country where art, literature, film and even humor has retained rural references. The silver fern and the paua shell are only two iconic items which have begun to define the past of the native Maori and the foundations of civilized New Zealand.

Marg Kronfeld can today enjoy with delight the resurgence of traditional crafts. Carvings from the Maori are prized; human figures with three fingers and oddly shaped heads, patterns of spirals, ridges, notches and fish scales and carved houses, as well as the Maori tradition of using natural materials to create colored paints for pictures and coverings of white wood, are enjoying a return to the daily lives of the kiwi. Maori tattoos, portraits, landscapes and weaving of cloaks, jewelry, belts and wall hangings, are enjoyed again today by artists who are re-learning traditional art forms.

Company Director Marg Kronfeld of BK Enterprises also enjoys the traditional chants and songs which originated in South and East Asia. Flutes, trumpets, drums and accompanying dance has returned to the native music forms of the Maori. A renewed respect for the traditional, and growing interest in kiwi archaeology and history, is viewed annually in arts and cultural shows and presentations.

Marg Kronfeld Lives Midst Ancient Maori Culture

Archeological and anthropological studies to date indicate that the New Zealand of Marg Kronfeld, Company Director of today’s BK Enterprises of North Shore in Auckland, New Zealand, was settled by Polynesians in approximately 1250AD.  A Maori culture developed on New Zealand, from the arrivals from Eastern Polynesia, who immigrated there through a series of canoe explorations over a long period of time.  First discovered by white European Abel Tasman in 1642, The British Crown and Chiefs of the Maori signed a treaty in 1840 making New Zealand a British colony.  Today, a majority of New Zealand’s population is British or of British descent, with the largest ethnic minority the indigenous Maori natives. 

New Zealand is remote and consists of mountainous topography caused by significant tectonic activity due to volcanic eruptions.  The very remoteness of the island country has resulted in a distinct and specialized biodiversity in animal, fungal and plant life.  New Zealand is approximately 900 miles east of Australia and 600 miles south of the Pacific islands of Fiji, Tonga and New Caledonia.

The Dominion of New Zealand today is a constitutional monarchy with parliamentary democracy.  The monarch is Queen Elizabeth II of Britain and New Zealand, represented by the Governor-General.  New Zealand’s realm consists of the North and South Islands, as well as Tokelau, a territory, the Cook Islands and Nieu, which are self-governing, states, as well as the Ross Dependency, a claim of territory by New Zealand in Antarctica. Marg Kronfeld’s adopted country was renamed Nova Zeelandia, after the Dutch province of Zeeland, in 1645.
