Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Friday, 7 August 2009

Air New Zealand is to launch direct air services between Rotorua and Sydney. The service which is scheduled to commence 12 December 2009 will be operated with 152-seat Airbus A320 aircraft.

The airline will operate a twice weekly service from 19 December on Saturdays and Mondays until the end of January, after which they will operate on Saturdays and Tuesdays.

"Rotorua is an iconic tourism destination and well known amongst Australian travellers. We see the potential for good passenger numbers from Australia and the continued strength of inbound tourism from there has lent weight to our decision," said Air New Zealand General Manager Tasman Pacific Airline, Glen Sowry. "The new services will also make Rotorua significantly more accessible for visitors from Asia who often visit both Australia and New Zealand and whom we can now bring directly from Sydney to Rotorua instead of via Auckland."

Air New Zealand has launched a special  fare of $209 one-way online available for sale until 14 August 2009 with year round fares available from $239 one way.
