Singapore Airlines and Air New Zealand to expand services between Singapore and New Zealand
Singapore Airlines and Air New Zealand have joined forces to expand services between Singapore and New Zealand.
The alliance will enable Air New Zealand to fly the Auckland-Singapore route again.
Air New Zealand last operated to Singapore in 2006.
It will also allow SIA to operate the Airbus A380 aircraft to New Zealand for the first time.
Subject to regulatory approvals, the carriers would aim to boost their existing capacity between Singapore and New Zealand by up to 30 per cent year round over time.
Singapore Airlines' daily Singapore-Christchurch service will continue as part of the alliance.
The proposed alliance would enable Air New Zealand passengers to access codeshare travel on the Singapore Airlines network to the United Kingdom, Europe, South East Asia and Africa, as well as on the network of its regional subsidiary airline, SilkAir.
Singapore Airlines' customers would be able to access codeshare travel across the Air New Zealand domestic network and to selected international destinations.
