You Heard It First From Rainbow Travel

Air New Zealand celebrate 10 years of Air New Zealand service between Auckland and Vancouver.

There’s about 66,000 Canadians that travel to New Zealand in a year, it’s grown about 19 per cent year on year, which is phenomenal.

Air New Zealand is expanding its Vancouver-Auckland operation by almost 20 per cent as of January 2018, adding about 15,600 new seats to the route.

Frequency of services will move from seven to eight flights per week in the January peak season; from five flights per week to daily during February; increase to five flights a week in March and April, up from four, and to four weekly flights May through mid-June, up from three.

The Australia Connection

Air New Zealand offers connections to eight cities in Australia through its Auckland hub.

Auckland airport is really easy, you don’t have to change terminals, you don’t have to go through customs and immigration and your bags get checked all the way through. It’s the easiest transfer onto another plane that you can get.

The airline is currently running a dual campaign offering both countries for one price.

Dreamliners On The Way

Air New Zealand have got a really large fleet of Dreamliners coming. The size of the Business and Premium Economy cabins have been increased and the size of the Economy cabin have decreased because there is more demand for the front end of the plane.

Award-winning Service

Air New Zealand has once again been named Top Airline in the World by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler, in its 30th annual Readers’ Choice Awards. Readers cited the carrier’s close attention to seat comfort; praised the Economy Skycouch product and commended the airline for serving award-winning New Zealand wine.
