Air New Zealand supports airport growth aspirations

Air New Zealand supports airport growth aspirations

Air New Zealand welcomes Auckland International Airport Limited’s announcement of a development plan for the airport aimed at significantly growing visitor numbers from 14 million to 40 million in the next 30 years.

Air New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Christopher Luxon says the plan offers enormous potential benefits to tourism.

“We recognise the importance of Auckland airport as a key piece of national infrastructure and one of the critical gateways for visitors to New Zealand.

“Customer experience is at the core of our business and the plans announced today reflect a major step in not only improving that experience, but taking it to the next level in our biggest city,” says Mr Luxon.

The announcement comes days after the launch of Tourism 2025, a national framework which aims to align the New Zealand tourism industry and see industry stakeholders work together to capitalise on growth opportunities and increase tourism revenues to $41 billion by 2025.

Air New Zealand’s Go Beyond strategy is similarly focussed on supercharging New Zealand’s success through significant and sustainable growth.

“Tourism is already one of New Zealand’s key export earners. This kind of responsible long term planning by key industry players has the potential to significantly boost this country’s economy in the future,” says Mr Luxon.

More than 2.76 million international visitors arrived in New Zealand in the year ended February 2014, around one third of which arrived on Air New Zealand services.
