Air New Zealand is putting on 10 extra return services to Japan to meet demand from rugby fans heading there in 2019. The services will operate between Auckland and Narita International Airport, Tokyo from mid-September through to early November using the airline’s Boeing 777 aircraft.
Air New Zealand currently operates a daily return service between Auckland and Narita, increasing to nine services a week from July 2019 and 10 services a week from December next year.
Air New Zealand Chief Revenue Officer Cam Wallace says the airline expects thousands of New Zealanders will be keen to combine some great international rugby action with the opportunity to explore all Japan has to offer as a tourist destination.
“We’re already experiencing increased demand from Kiwi rugby fans wanting to get to Japan next year. These extra services represent more than 6,000 additional seats to Japan over a six-week period and are on sale now.”
