Air New Zealand says ‘Hello’ to Adele fans
The airline will operate extra services between Auckland and Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and Queenstown in the days leading up and following the singer’s sold-out shows in March 2016.
In an effort to move as many fans as possible, Air New Zealand will use one of its 312 seat Boeing 777-200 aircraft normally dedicated to international routes on some Christchurch-Auckland services, with the rest operated by the A320 fleet.
Air New Zealand Regional GM Direct & Market Development Jeremy O’Brien says, “The extra flights will provide 15,000 more seats for Adele fans who’ve been lucky enough to secure tickets. It’s clear Adele has captivated Kiwi audiences and we’re looking forward to welcoming her fans on board.”
The extra flights go on sale this afternoon.
