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 they’ll 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
