Air New Zealand goes daily on Houston service

Air New Zealand is moving to daily services on its new Auckland-Houston route for the peak season from December to February.
24 March 2016

The airline launched the route in December 2015 and has been operating five weekly return services using Boeing 777-200 aircraft.

Air New Zealand Chief Sales and Commercial Officer Cam Wallace says the Houston service is already proving so popular the airline is stepping up frequency to daily services from December through February and then five times per week for the rest of the year.

“Sales are strong with Kiwi and Australian customers loving the fact they can now access the US Midwest and South as well as key destinations such as Chicago and New York via Houston. We’re also seeing good growth in the number of American travellers using this service to visit New Zealand and Australia.

“We look forward to offering even more options for customers through increased frequency on this route.”
