Additional Fiji capacity great news for Auckland

Auckland Airport has welcomed the announcement by Air New Zealand that it will increase its Fijian route capacity next year in response to growing demand. The airline announced that it will be flying a daily wide-body 777 service from May to October 2015.

Charles Spillane, Auckland Airport’s acting general manager aeronautical commercial, says, “The announcement by Air New Zealand is great news and results in a 12% increase in its capacity on the route that’s an additional 16,000 seats.”

“Obviously, Fiji is a very popular destination for Kiwis and the addition of Air New Zealand’s business class lie-flat product on this route will provide travellers with an even greater selection of seat options. The airline has also refined its scheduled flight times to provide passengers with improved connectivity to the Air New Zealand domestic network.”

“Auckland Airport congratulates Air New Zealand on the announcement, which is a vote of strong confidence in its Auckland-Nadi operations.”
