All eyes to the sky as new Air New Zealand livery takes flight

Air New Zealand is encouraging Kiwi plane-spotters to keep their eyes on the sky tomorrow as the first aircraft bearing the airline’s New Zealand Fern Mark inspired livery takes flight across the country.

The Airbus A320 aircraft goes into service on Air New Zealand’s domestic network tomorrow, making appearances in Auckland, Christchurch and Queenstown throughout the day.

The new white livery features a black tail with the distinctive New Zealand Fern Mark in contrasting white. While most of the fleet will sport this white version of the livery the airline will also continue to have a small number of signature aircraft in an all black version.

Air New Zealand is encouraging Kiwi plane spotters to track the aircraft’s progress throughout the day and share sightings on its social media channels – Twitter @FlyAirNZ; Instagram #airnzshareme or send larger files to socialmedia@airnz.co.nz.

The airline is also offering fans the chance to win a scale model of the new look Airbus A320 by creating a paper plane version using the template from www.theflyingsocialnetwork.com, and sharing a picture of their creation on Instagram or Twitter using #AirNZPaperPlane.
