Origin Pacific Update

Origin Pacific Update

Air New Zealand is extremely concerned that Origin Pacific continues to tell its customers arrangements have been made for them to travel on Air New Zealand.

Air New Zealand’s Chief Financial Officer, Rob McDonald, says the airline is extremely concerned that Origin has abandoned its customers in such a cavalier manner and he will be travelling to Nelson to seek a meeting with its managers this morning.

“Based on the information that Origin Pacific has released to the market it is operating as a solvent business that is capable of paying its bills. However, it seems to have unilaterally decided it can abandon its thousands of customers despite having accepted payment of in excess of $1 million for their fares,” says Mr McDonald.

“Before reaccommodating Origin’s customers, Air New Zealand wants to establish what has happened to the money paid for the fares.”
