“Please Explain About The Planes”
“Please Explain About The Planes” - Wellington Chamber
“Any sale of Air New Zealand shares to
another airline – particularly QANTAS –must be in the
interests not only of Air New Zealand but also the overall
economy” said Wellington Regional Chamber of Commerce CEO
Philip Lewin today.
Mr Lewin was speaking in response to
the announcement of a “Joint Services Agreement” between Air
New Zealand and QANTAS.
“As Wellingtonians, we’re big
fans of Air New Zealand, and want it to be strong and
vibrant as our flag carrier – not to be relegated to a
backyard, backwater role” said Mr Lewin.
“We also want to
see real competition continue both domestically and on
international routes – for exporters, importers, business
visitors and tourists in and out of New Zealand”
therefore ask the Government itself – not just the two
airlines - to explain to New Zealanders the benefits of any
sell-down and the package that goes with it, before any
final decision is taken by Cabinet to proceed” Mr Lewin
