Air NZ to ramp up services to HNL and YVR

August 10, 2017 Headline News No Comments Email Email

Air New Zealand has revealed plans to fly almost 60,000 extra seats on the Honolulu route and to ramp up services to Vancouver as well.

The increases may produce attractive deals for Australians who feel like travelling through Auckland.

Air New Zealand will fly almost 60,000 additional seats between Auckland and Honolulu from April to October next year, an increase of 75% compared with this year.

The airline will operate an additional 94 return services during the period, moving to daily flights and up to nine services per week during the busy July school holiday period.

Services will be operated by the B787-9 Dreamliner for most of the year, with a change to the B777-200 during the July and September holiday periods.

Air New Zealand offers its popular Economy Skycouch product as well as Premium Economy and Business Premier on its services to Hawaii.

On the Vancouver front, Air New Zealand will grow its Vancouver-Auckland operation by nearly 20% from January to July 2018.

The airline will move initially from seven to eight weekly services during the first half of January peak period, growing frequency over the shoulder season as the airline moves from five weekly services to daily flights during February, and increases to five services a week in March and April (up from four) and four weekly services during May – mid-June (up from three).
