Air NZ & Singapore Airlines alliance
The government has given the green light to a strategic alliance between Air New Zealand and Singapore Airlines.
Growing sustainable air connections is crucial to growing the value of tourism, says TIA Chief Executive Chris Roberts.
"The alliance between Air New Zealand and Singapore Airlines has immediate benefits in terms of additional capacity and also offers a sustainable partnership that should provide long-term gains and opportunities.
“Singapore is a vital source of visitors to New Zealand with potential to increase. It is also one of the world’s major aviation hubs and a vital pipeline to our growing visitor markets throughout Asia and the Pacific Rim."
