Air New Zealand has announced that it will
operate five additional return Airbus A320 services between Dunedin and
Auckland per week from 29 October 2018.
The new flights add around 70,000 seats
annually to the route and increase seat capacity by close to 25%.
The new flights are timed to help
Dunedin business travellers get more out of their day in Auckland,
as well as enable connections via Auckland to Air New Zealand’s
international destinations including Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney,
Perth and Nadi.
Air New Zealand Chief Revenue Officer Cam
Wallace, said, "We are committed to growing services between
Dunedin and Auckland and working closely with Dunedin Airport.
Dunedin is a really important part of Air New Zealand’s network,
so it’s tremendous to see continued strong demand for services to
and from the city."
