Air New Zealand to operate limited services

Published on : Wednesday, March 25, 2020

New Zealand’s flag carrier Air New Zealand has decided to operate limited services. The decision would enable essential travel and maintain cargo flow in the critical times created in light of the coronavirus pandemic. The airline will also cut international schedules by 95% from March 30th 2020 to May 31st 2020.

 

 

Air New Zealand will operate three long-haul services from Auckland starting May 2nd 2020. It will also operate flights to Los Angeles three times a week and to Hong Kong around two times a week. Flights will also be sent to Shanghai on alternate days. This new schedule will keep air freight moving through key cargo corridors to North America and Asia.

 

 

The Hong Kong service will be re-scheduled to a night operation in order to maximise connection opportunities for cargo.

 

 

The carrier will also maintain three trans-Tasman routes. Each fight will be operated two to three times per week. The carrier will also provide Pacific services nearly five times each week. It also plans to operate weekly services to Samoa and Tonga. These flights would be operational if restrictions on international travel are lifted.

 

 

Air New Zealand mentioned in a statement that all services are subject to change. The changes would be established as governments continue to introduce or change travel and border restrictions.

 

 

New Zealand started a four-week lockdown while the neighboring country Australia went on to restrict domestic travel.
