In 1935 a new set of airmail stamps replaced the 1931 designs. The new design was based on a photograph of the trans-Tasman 'Faith in Australia' aircraft landing at Bell Block aerodrome in New Plymouth.

The cost of airmail delivery was dropping and at the end of 1934, the first internal airmail services began operating between Hokitika and Okuru in Westland, charging standard postal rates.

By 1938, airmail rates between New Zealand, Britain and most of the British Empire were fixed at 1½d per half ounce and the use of special airmail stamps ceased shortly afterwards.
