Air New Zealand will add the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to its Adelaide route from October 2017 on the back of strong visitation numbers from South Australia.
Dreamliner flights will operate during the peak season of October 2017 to March 2018 and will include Business Premier and Premium Economy seating.
Air New Zealand have made other investments in the South Australian capital of late, being the first airline to offer self service check-in kiosks at Adelaide airport.
“We’re looking forward to introducing the Dreamliner on the Adelaide route. This change is really going to enhance the experience we offer our customers travelling between South Australia and New Zealand as well as onto our North and South America destinations, with more choice about when and how they fly,” Air New Zealand chief revenue officer Cam Wallace said.
Dreamliner flights NZ191 from Auckland will depart on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 835am, arriving in Adelaide at 1040am, while NZ192 will depart Adelaide on the same days at 1140am, arriving in Auckland at 625pm.
