Watch the Cookie Time Fly on Air New Zealand! –
Iconic Kiwi brands join forces to fuel domestic travellers

Cookie Time Limited and Air New Zealand today announced a partnership deal with Cookie Time cookies becoming the new sweet offering on all main trunk domestic flights.

Cookie Time Rookie Cookies, mini-sized and in Chocolate Chunk flavour, are currently being rolled out onboard, with an expected 3 million cookies a year are expected to be delivered to travellers under the new deal.

In September, CTL launched a major refresh for the Cookie Time brand as it gears up for its 30th birthday next February. The 25g rookie cookie is one of 20 cookies in the brand portfolio, all of which use premium natural ingredients.

Lincoln Booth, CTL general manager, says the Air New Zealand partnership brings together two iconic Kiwi brands.

“We’ve just had our biggest brand refresh in 20 years, bringing our beloved Cookie Muncher front and centre of new packaging, point of sale, advertising and signs for more than 900 dairies throughout the country. So we’re delighted with the opportunity to fly even higher with this partnership.”

In other news earlier this week, Cookie Time launched its 27th annual Christmas Cookies campaign, with a new mentoring programme for the handpicked young entrepreneurs that form the Christmas Cookies selling team. There are 73 sellers nationwide. Christmas Cookies are also available online at www.cookietime.co.nz
