Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Thursday, 11 June 2009

Low cost, Christchurch-based airline, Pacific Blue, is to launch new direct services to Australia from Queenstown, Dunedin and Wellington from September.

The new flights are:

Queenstown-Sydney: Two flights a week
Dunedin-Brisbane: Three flights a week
Wellington-Sydney: Three flights a week

Virgin Blue Group CEO, Brett Godfrey, said, When the new services start Pacific Blue will have international flights from six New Zealand airports Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and Queenstown which is more than any other airline.

Pacific Blue will also be the first low cost airline to fly internationally into Queenstown, which to date had been served only by full-service carriers.

As much as Kiwis enjoy a warm weather holiday in Australia, we know that Aussies love to visit the stunning scenery of Queenstown for adventure and ski holidays or simply to relax, and now theyll be able to do that at a reasonable price, Mr Godfrey said.

The airline will also introduce a direct daily jet service between Dunedin and Auckland to replace its current Dunedin-Christchurch-Auckland service.
