Travel News Asia 28 June 2005

Thai Airways International and Air New Zealand are to begin reciprocal code-share flights from 1 July 2005.

The agreement will see Air New Zealand code-share on THAIs services between;

- Bangkok and Singapore
- Bangkok and Phuket
- Bangkok and the European cities of Frankfurt, Rome, London, Stockholm and Copenhagen

The code-share agreement enables Air New Zealand to market Bangkok as a gateway to various destinations in addition to our own existing Asian gateways of Singapore and Hong Kong, said Mr. Norm Thompson, Air New Zealand Group General Manager for Marketing.

It also further strengthens cooperation between Air New Zealand and THAI as members of the Star Alliance.

Thai Airways International will code-share on multiple Air New Zealand domestic and trans-Tasman services between:

- Auckland and Wellington, Christchurch, Melbourne and Perth
- Wellington and Sydney and Melbourne
- Christchurch and Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane

The code-share agreement between THAI and Air New Zealand opens up opportunities for the company to expand into Wellington and Christchurch, which is a new prospective market for THAI, says Mr Vasing Kittikul, Thai Airways Internationals Executive Vice President for Commercial.
