Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 21 December 2010

Air New Zealand has welcomed the decision by the New Zealand Minister of Transport to approve the trans Tasman alliance between Air New Zealand and Virgin Blue.

The Minister has recognised the benefits and value created for consumers by the alliance, said Air New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Rob Fyfe. Im pleased that formal approval has been given, which combined with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commissions approval last week enables us to implement the alliance and deliver benefits to customers.

The two airlines will now form a team to bring the alliance to life over the coming months.

 We look forward to being able to connect our customers between all Australian cities served by Virgin Blue and all towns and cities where we operate in New Zealand, Mr. Fyfe added.
