Air New Zealand Chief Marketing and Customer Officer Mike Tod says the Wine Flight is a major opportunity to showcase New Zealand wine and wine regions to a highly influential global audience.

 
“The passengers we will carry on the Wine Flight today come from 11 different countries and are leading figures in the global wine industry. The combination of the publications many of them write for and their extensive social media reach will create significant exposure for the New Zealand wine industry and New Zealand as a destination for wine tourism,” says Mr Tod.

 
New Zealand Winegrowers’ Global Marketing Director Chris Yorke says, “The Wine Flight allows us to offer this highly influential group of global wine media and trade representatives a totally fresh perspective on New Zealand wine, by flying them over the stunning regions that produce the fantastic wines that they’ll be tasting.”

 
The group has been in New Zealand to attend the inaugural International Sauvignon Blanc Celebration earlier this week, with many also attending the Chardonnay and Sparkling Symposium in Gisborne today and tomorrow.

 
Air New Zealand and New Zealand Winegrowers have a strong track record of working together to promote New Zealand wine and wine tourism. Wine tourism is a significant contributor to New Zealand’s economy. In the year ended September 2015, more than 500,000 international visitors enjoyed a winery visit as part of their itinerary.
Air New Zealand is proud to be the naming rights sponsor of the Air New Zealand Wine Awards for three decades.
