Air New Zealand announces additional jet services between Dunedin and Auckland

The new flights are timed to help Dunedin business travellers get more out of their day in Auckland, as well as enable connections via Auckland to Air New Zealand’s international destinations including Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Nadi.

Air New Zealand Chief Revenue Officer Cam Wallace is in Dunedin to speak at the TRENZ travel showcase and says the additional services will provide even more options for travellers.

"We are committed to growing services between Dunedin and Auckland and working closely with Dunedin Airport. Dunedin is a really important part of Air New Zealand’s network, so it’s tremendous to see continued strong demand for services to and from the city," says Mr Wallace.

Dunedin Airport Chief Executive Officer Richard Roberts says the new services reflect the partnership between the two organisations.

"Our business is built on strong relationships and we are particularly proud of our relationship with Air New Zealand. Over the past few years we have worked together to increase capacity in and out of our region. This latest announcement is testament to this - better together," says Mr Roberts.
