Air New Zealand enhances domestic in-flight service

Stylish new water bottles and the introduction of wine and beer on selected domestic flights are two enhancements being made to Air New Zealand's domestic service.

>From today, customers travelling on Air New Zealand's B737 domestic flights after 4.30pm will be able to purchase a range of beverages and snacks from the airline's new 'Bar Onboard' service.

Customers will also start receiving 300ml Air New Zealand-designed water bottles called 'Koru Spring', which will progressively replace the smaller 100ml water 'pottles' on all B737 domestic services from July.

Air New Zealand Group General Manager Short Haul Airlines Norm Thompson said the new offerings marked an exciting enhancement to the airline's domestic service, and were being introduced to meet the different needs of the travelling public.

"Customers on our evening flights have told us they would welcome the opportunity to buy snacks and aperitifs in addition to tea and coffee. The launch of 'Bar Onboard' now means this "after work crowd" can sit back and enjoy a glass of beer or wine as an appetiser to dinner," said Mr Thompson.

"Combined with the introduction of our new 'Koru Spring' resealable water bottles, the changes we are making offer both our business and leisure customers a more comfortable and enjoyable in-flight experience."

Air New Zealand's 'Bar Onboard' service will initially offer canned beers and small bottles of New Zealand wine at $5.00 each, plus a range of snacks such as chips, beef sticks and cheese bites from $1.50.

"Over time we'll add new products to the menu to ensure a good variety of snacks and beverages," said Mr Thompson.

'Bar Onboard' is available from today on selected 737 domestic services operating after 4.30pm.
