Air NZ – Singapore Airlines alliance takes off
The alliance between Air New Zealand and Singapore Airlines took flight on 6 January with the first return service between New Zealand and Singapore departing Auckland.
The Star Alliance carriers are each operating one daily return service between Auckland and Singapore. Singapore Airlines is also operating a daily return service between Christchurch and Singapore.
“The operational launch of our alliance is an exciting way to kick off 2015, a year which will see us grow our long haul network,” says Air New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Christopher Luxon. “Our New Zealand – Singapore service is a key to our Pacific Rim strategy, providing our customers with not only a convenient direct service, but great connectivity to South East Asia and markets beyond.”
