Air NZ reduces domestic fares

Air NZ reduces domestic fares
By admin

Air New Zealand has slashed fares on domestic routes for the second time in nine months, part of an “aggressive” new approach to fill additional capacity.

The airline is launching an additional 6,000 seats a week into the market over the coming year.

Group general manager Australasia Bruce Parton said leisure travellers in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and Queenstown would be the first to benefit from the new fares which are for sale now for travel from September 1.

Regional fares are also under review ahead of the arrival of Air NZ’s first ATR72-600 turbo prop aircraft in a few months.

“We are currently engaging with key regional stakeholders around the country who are interested in growing tourism into their markets,” Parton said.

“We want to stimulate demand to get more Kiwis flying and with more than US$1 billion of domestic aircraft on order we are ready to support a rebound in the economy.”

Under the changes, a fare on the Auckland-Wellington route has decreased from $69 to $49.
