All Blacks Captain Kieran Read Becomes Ambassador of Air New Zealand

Air New Zealand has signed All Blacks Captain Kieran Read as its newest ambassador.

Air New Zealand has been a sponsor of the All Blacks for more than two decades and also counts Head Coach Steve Hansen and the outstanding former All Blacks Captain Richie McCaw as ambassadors for its brand.

We are dedicated to supporting our national rugby team led by Kieran and flying the All Blacks to take on the world, particularly this year as they prepare for the 2016 Investec Rugby Championship and End of Year Tour which will include a historic match against the Irish in Chicago. We are putting on a special Fan Flight to Chicago to get rugby enthusiasts to the match, said Air New Zealand Chief Executive Officer, Christopher Luxon.

Read has worked with the airline previously, including starring in its 2015 safety video Men in Black Safety Defenders.

Im proud to partner with our unique Kiwi airline and be involved with a company that has some special brand values which really resonate with me. I look forward to working more closely with Air New Zealand in the coming years, said Read.
