Customers travelling from Melbourne will benefit with easier access to explore the spectacular scenery and adventures that New Zealand’s south island offers throughout the year,” said Mr. Nobelius.

“And customers from New Zealand will have more options to experience Melbourne, in addition to onward connections to Dubai, London, and a range of European destinations.”

The daily Melbourne – Christchurch service follows the increase to daily flights between Brisbane – Christchurch in October this year, also timed to connect with Qantas’ Asian and US network via Brisbane.

“We’re seeing high levels of interest for travel between Australia and Christchurch, which allows us to increase services and better connect Australians and Kiwis ahead of the peak holiday travel season,” added Mr. Nobelius.
