Air New Zealand resumes flights to more North American destinations

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND — Air New Zealand resumes its non-stop flights on routes to San Francisco and is planning to resume services to Honolulu on July 4th and to Houston on July 7th. Air New Zealand recently announced the start of its new route between Auckland and New York, JFK from 17 September 2022, one of the longest routes in the world.

The carrier has already been operating daily flights between Auckland and Los Angeles since March this year. The services to San Francisco will initially operate three times a week with the airline's Boeing 787 Dreamliner jets, meaning that customers flying these routes will be able to enjoy the airline’s uniquely kiwi Business Premier, Premium Economy, and Economy Skycouch product offerings.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliners that will serve on these routes offer more Premium seats than other Dreamliners in the airline’s fleet.

“Recommencing services across our North America routes as the border reopens is another step towards the gradual resumption of flights to destinations across our international network,”

says Air New Zealand Chief Customer and Sales Officer Leanne Geraghty.

“Our North America network plays a key role in our Kia Mau Thrive strategy, so it’s great to be able to reopen another important port in the region. San Francisco is a year-round destination for Kiwis and equally, an important departure point for Americans looking to visit New Zealand and Australia,”

Geraghty added.
