Air New Zealand plans all-Airbus domestic fleet by 2016

Air New Zealand plans to have an all Airbus fleet for its domestic service by 2016 (21-Jul-2011). CFO Rob McDonald stated, at the Aviation Outlook Australia Pacific conference, that short-haul is now the carrier's largest market and it plans to have 30 aircraft for domestic destinations by 2016. The carrier is planning to "simplify" its fleet as Air New Zealand "does not have the scale to support multiple fleet types".
