airberlin planeairberlin customers for the first time can fly to New Zealand after the airline extended its codeshare agreement with Virgin Australia. 


airberlin’s flight numbers now feature on 10 Virgin Australia routes connecting  Australia with five destinations in New Zealand.  These include services from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to Christchurch and to Auckland; services from Brisbane to the New Zealand capital, Wellington and to Dunedin and services from Sydney and Brisbane to Queenstown.  

Stefan Pichler, airberlin’s Chief Executive Officer, said:  “New Zealand is a great destination and our extended relationship with Virgin Australia brings this fascinating country even closer, which is testimony to the excellent partnership the two airlines have enjoyed since 2013.” 

Virgin Australia services between Australia and New Zealand are operated by Boeing 737 aircraft and offer business class, which features luxurious leather seats and gourmet food created by renowned Australian chef Luke Mangan.  

airberlin in September placed its flight numbers on services from Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne to the Australian capital of Canberra and Hobart on the island state of Tasmania, from Sydney and Melbourne to Tasmania’s second largest city, Launceston, from Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth to Darwin, and from Perth to Adelaide.  

Virgin Australia also expanded its network in Europe by placing its VA flight numbers on airberlin services from Berlin to Cologne, Stockholm and Helsinki, as well as from Dusseldorf to Hamburg.  

Tickets can be booked at, via travel agents or by calling the 24/7 airberlin Service Centre.
