Air New Zealand has reaffirmed its commitment to domestic New Zealand with the announcement today that it will be increasing capacity between Wellington and Queenstown this winter ski season.
From July through until mid October, the airline will be offering 44% more seats a week between the capital and Queenstown.  Much of this extra capacity will be achieved through the up-gauging of these services from the existing 68 seat ATR turboprop aircraft to 133 seat Boeing 737-300 jets.
Air New Zealand Group General Manager New Zealand and Pacific Islands, Cam Wallace, says, “Queenstown is a hugely popular destination over the ski season and this up-gauge will replace some of the capacity that competitor Jetstar has recently withdrawn from the route.”
In April the trans-Tasman alliance of Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia announced an additional 30,000 extra seats between Queenstown and Australia over the peak winter season of July to September.
