Total = 15,656 seats / 253 extra flights

Air New Zealand Chief Revenue Officer Cam Wallace said, "Air services are extremely important for regional New Zealand, particularly over the busy holiday period, so we're pleased to be able to step in and add capacity to the routes impacted. These additional services during the month of December reflect an increase of more than 15,500 extra seats to and from regional New Zealand. We are also continuing to look at additional capacity on our regional services post December."

Air New Zealand is also assisting affected Jetstar customers who have refunded their Jetstar flight with a special fare. Eligible customers can email Air New Zealand with proof of their affected Jetstar ticket.
