Air New Zealand invites customers to travel like royalty tomorrow

Air New Zealand is set to celebrate the royal wedding of Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle with customers who share the same wedding date.

Customers travelling with the airline domestically and internationally on the 19 May, who are also celebrating their wedding anniversary, will be offered the royal treatment with complimentary access to Air New Zealand’s network of lounges*.

Customers simply need to present their marriage certificate showing they too were married on the 19th of May of any year to access any Air New Zealand operated lounge.

Air New Zealand Manager Global Lounges Ali Swarbrick says it’s terrific to get behind the much-anticipated royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and share the excitement with customers.

“We look forward to rolling out the red carpet for customers travelling with us on Saturday and invite them to celebrate their own special day with us as we acknowledge the royal nuptials. In addition to welcoming these special guests into our lounges, we’ll be serving celebratory Kir Royale cocktails in the Auckland International, Sydney, Los Angeles, Wellington Domestic and Christchurch Domestic lounges and running a fun wedding cake competition.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are understood to have chosen elderflower flavour for their wedding cake so customers in the Auckland International, Sydney, Los Angeles, Wellington Domestic and Christchurch Domestic lounges will be able to sample elderflower wedding cake made by the kitchen staff in each of these lounges as part of an in-house challenge.
