7 June 2018

From the end of October, an A320 jet service will depart Queenstown for Wellington daily at 7:10am.  A second daily A320 service will depart at 3:55pm with flights returning from the capital at 9:10am and 6:00pm.

The airline will also increase its A320 services between Queenstown and Wellington by one return service per week from the end of October to March, taking the total number of return jet services on the route to two per day, seven days a week.  Air New Zealand operates a third Queenstown-Wellington service on a Sunday, flown by an ATR turboprop aircraft.

Air New Zealand General Manager Networks Kate O'Brien says Queenstown business customers will now be able to arrive in Wellington by 8:30am enabling them to carry out a full day of work.

"Queenstown is a hugely popular port on our domestic network and we continue to see growing demand for services between the town and the capital".

"We are continuing to grow our Queenstown-Wellington route, with 28,000 extra seats over November to March now available when compared with the previous year."
