Air New Zealand moves to all-inclusive pricing

Air New Zealand moves to all-inclusive pricing

Air New Zealand is to introduce all-inclusive advertised pricing for all international flights from New Zealand.

From Monday 19 June 2006, Air New Zealand will incorporate all pre-payable government costs and airport charges into one all-inclusive price for print, broadcast and online advertising.

Air New Zealand Group General Manager Norm Thompson said all-inclusive advertised pricing was great news for customers, and followed the airline’s move earlier this year to incorporate fuel surcharges and insurance costs into international airfares.

“The new pricing will provide more cost certainty as customers will now be able to see what the total cost of travel is once external charges are factored in,” he said.

“Essentially, what they see advertised will more closely resemble what they end up paying.

“We’re now in a position to lead the airline industry in our market with what we believe will become the industry standard in airfare advertising,” said Mr Thompson.

Air New Zealand first introduced all-inclusive advertised pricing for its domestic flights in April 2003.

Examples of all-inclusive advertised long term pricing:

Auckland to Hong Kong return internet fare

New all-inclusive advertised price = $1891

Previously advertised price = $1849 + $42 government and airport costs

Auckland to Sydney one way internet fare

New all-inclusive advertised price = $318

Previously advertised price = $279 + $39 in airport and government taxes
