Air New Zealand will operate business-timed flights in and out of a number of regional ports from next month.
The flights will allow customers in Hamilton, Tauranga, Napier, New Plymouth, Palmerston North, Nelson, Dunedin and
Invercargill to undertake a day of business in either Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch.
Air New Zealand General Manager Networks Scott Carr says the airline has also timed flights allowing those in the main
centres to be able to fly to the majority of these regions for a day of business.
“Since publishing our domestic schedule for Alert Level 2, we’ve seen a good initial response from leisure travellers.
As we further build our domestic schedule, we’re looking to cater for resumed business travel which we know helps
support economic activity in regional New Zealand. As our corporate customers get moving again, we encourage take-up of
these new services which depart first thing in the morning, returning in the late afternoon or evening.”
