Air New Zealand today announced that its new non-stop service
between Vancouver, Canada and Auckland, will now operate year-round, offering
additional services to those newly scheduled for the peak travel season. The
increase comes in response to the strong demand from customers eager to fly
directly to New Zealand.
Early this year, Air New Zealand announced that its new non-stop route between Vancouver and Auckland would be available from November 2007 through March 2008, to coincide with the busiest travel season between the two countries. Since the announcement, forward bookings have been very strong, prompting the airline to extend the offer, making the service available year-round.
With the launch of the year-round non-stop service, Air New Zealand will provide three non-stop services each week between Vancouver and Auckland during the months of November through March and July through August. The service will be available twice-weekly for the remaining months of the year.
Star Alliance partner Air Canada will also be codesharing on this service.
