Air New Zealand moves to daily Tokyo and Shanghai services

Media release
25 January 2013

Air New Zealand moves to daily Tokyo and Shanghai services
Air New Zealand is now operating daily return services to Tokyo and Shanghai in response to strong growth in the Asian market.

The airline has this week commenced daily return services to Shanghai for the first time since launching the route in 2006.

Air New Zealand Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Acting Chief Sales Officer Norm Thompson says the Shanghai region is home to around 23 million people and the city is a perfect gateway for the rapidly growing Chinese market.

“China is now New Zealand’s second largest inbound tourist market, after Australia, having recently overtaken both North America and the UK.”

Air New Zealand has also resumed daily return services to Tokyo for the first time in three years, increasing capacity on the route in December by more than 12 percent year on year.

Mr Thompson says the return to daily Auckland – Tokyo services signals Air New Zealand’s commitment to the Japanese market.

“The Japanese market is now showing signs of strong recovery after it was hit very hard by both the Christchurch earthquake and Japan tsunami in 2011 and we have continued to increase capacity on the Tokyo route in line with increased demand.”
