Emirates' New Zealand manager Chris
Lethbridge said: "We have had a very busy and successful
first year operating into New Zealand, with services
expanding and two major sponsorships ? the Holden New
Zealand Open golf and Emirates Team New Zealand yachting
syndicate. We think it is very much worth celebrating the
support we have had in our first year by giving the public
the chance to experience Emirates' renowned quality service
at very attractive fares."
