Air New Zealand: “The extra capacity is being added as the airline starts to see a recovery in air travel, albeit one that is still well below the highs of 2008 … We are seeing a slow, but definite sign of a recovery from the reduction in travel in 2009, however these are still 13% below levels in 2008,” Norm Thompson, Air New Zealand Deputy CEO.
