Air New Zealand will kick off the first ever direct scheduled service between Invercargill and Auckland at the end of August.
Tickets for the Invercargill-Auckland service are now available at www.airnz.co.nz with the lead in fare starting from $83 one way. The airline will operate the direct flight five times a week using its Airbus A320 aircraft.
Air New Zealand Head of Regional Affairs Reuben Levermore says the airline is delighted to get the trial service up and running with the first flight between Auckland and Invercargill scheduled for 25 August.
“We’re committed to supporting the Southland region and we hope the added convenience and great lead in fare on offer will encourage people to get behind this new direct service.”
