Air New Zealand has signed a codeshare agreement
with Air India.
The deal will see Air New Zealand codeshare into
several Indian cities over multiple gateways.
Fellow Star Alliance carrier Air India will also
be able to access the New Zealand market on Air New Zealand
services, including over the Tasman, connecting its current Sydney
and Melbourne services.
Air New Zealand Chief Executive Officer,
Christopher Luxon, said, “The sheer size of India and its growing
middle class make it an aviation force that will positively impact
international traffic flows. Close to 90,000 people currently
travel between India and New Zealand every year and this number is
growing. This codeshare agreement will provide greater choice and
convenience for those travelling between our two countries in both
Codeshare services are expected to go on sale in
