COVID-19: Regional flights added for business travellers

As we further build our domestic schedule, we have added services to and from the regions timed to allow for a day of business.

With our corporate customers starting to travel again, we encourage take-up of these new services which depart first thing in the morning, returning in the late afternoon or evening.

Our business-timed flights take effect from 8 June and are available to book now.

COVID-19: International Network Updates

Due to the deep impact of COVID-19 on forward travel demand, we have extended the timeframe for our limited international network through to 31 August 2020, with a few exceptions which extend beyond this date. For more information regarding our schedule please click here.

We will not resume operation of our suspended Auckland-Buenos Aires and Los Angeles-London routes. In addition, we are also postponing the commencement of our non-stop service between Auckland and New York from October 2020 until late 2021 at the earliest.

We will continue to operate a limited international network to keep air links open for essential travel and cargo movement on key trade routes.
