With soaring demands, Qantas Airlines is planning to double its number of carriers in coming Christmas this year. As the executive chief Mr. Gareth Evans says that Australia and New Zealand are the two aspiring destinations in the coming years. In July the airlines already committed to launch new airline services to Christchurch and Melbourne as a result of increasing expectation. However, the flights between Christchurch and Brisbane have been made daily. Evans predicts that New Zealand will soon overtake China being the biggest inbound market in the years to come.
Qantas is slowly upgrading from Boeing 737 to wide-body A330’s. To quote Davies, ‘So we’re doing more of that to really step up the capacity over the peak, and what we will do in the trough periods is just look to thin out the schedule a little bit’. In the month of June, Qantas joined hands with American Airlines to launch daily flights Los Angeles and Auckland. Davies said that this move was enormously supported by the Kiwis and American Airlines used their marketing efforts in promoting New Zealand as the next best international destination in the world map. As more and more Australia and New Zealand started becoming affordable and attractive places in the global landscape, competition started growing as well.
