Air New Zealand increases capacity on Vancouver route

Tatiana Rokou - 07 August 2017, 00:11

The route will grow nearly 20% (an extra 15,600 seats) by increasing daily services beyond peak months of December and January into the shoulder season of February.

Air New Zealandis growing its Vancouver-Auckland operation by nearly 20% from January – July 2018, providing customers with greater choice and flexibility.

During the first half of the January peak period, the airline will increase services from seven to eight flights per week, making it easier than ever for Canadians to escape the cold.

Regional General Manager Americas Nick Judd says this extra capacity is a direct result of the increased demand for travel in the South Pacific region and the importance of Vancouver in the Air New Zealand network.

"This year marks ten years since we launched our Canadian service and increasing the frequency of our non-stop service between Vancouver and Auckland means our customers will have more travel options, which is great for Canadians wanting to discover all that New Zealand and Australia have to offer."

The route will grow nearly 20% (an extra 15,600 seats) by increasing daily services beyond peak months of December and January into the shoulder season of February, and increasing to five services a week in March and April (up from four) and four weekly services during May – mid-June (up from three).

Air New Zealand Chief Revenue Officer Cam Wallace says the airline is delighted to be able to offer its customers more scheduled flights to and from Vancouver.

"We recognize how popular Canada is as a winter destination for Kiwis. We also see the value in increasing services to New Zealand for Canadian tourists, allowing them to escape the winter and enjoy a chance to experience our beautiful summer and the tranquility of New Zealand through the shoulder season."
