Air New Zealand to mark 75th anniversary with Te Papa exhibition

Air New Zealand will commemorate its 75th anniversary with an exhibition at the country’s national museum Te Papa in Wellington.

The airline will celebrate 75 years of operations during 2015, and is working with Te Papa to launch a six month retrospective exhibition that will open in mid-December 2014.

Air New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Christopher Luxon announced the exhibition at a function in Wellington this evening.

“Our airline has been an integral part of the fabric of New Zealand and we have enjoyed the immense support of New Zealanders for almost 75 years. The exhibition, which will be free to attend, will give the public a real insight into the history of the airline, covering both the highs and the lows we’ve experienced in that time,” says Mr Luxon.

Te Papa’s Acting Chief Executive and Kaihautū, Arapata Hakiwai, says the national museum is excited to be working with Air New Zealand to bring its history to life.

“Air New Zealand’s 75th anniversary is a milestone, and it presents us with a great opportunity to share some of the wonderful personal stories that have shaped its rich history.” says Mr Hakiwai.

The exhibition will open on 20 December 2014 and run until early June 2015.
