Yesterday (June 4, 2020) Air New Zealand announced an update to their July and August flying program. The carrier will resume around 55 percent of their pre-pandemic capacity during this time frame. Although Air New Zealand has been servicing most of their domestic ports with reduced frequencies since the start of the nation’s “Alert Level 2”, the airline will resume their Timaru-Wellington and Taupo-Auckland routes on Monday, June 8, 2020. In Thursday’s announcement, Air New Zealand’s General Manager – Networks, Scott Carr said,
“We’ve been encouraged by demand from leisure travellers recently and we’re also expecting demand for business travel to continue to build. As a result, we have been working to add more flying to our domestic schedule from next month and this includes additional services for the July school holidays. From next month, we’ll resume our Invercargill-Auckland A320 jet service which will operate four return services a week and we’ll also resume our Invercargill-Wellington, Christchurch-Rotorua and Christchurch-New Plymouth routes. These routes will add further direct connections for customers travelling between the North and South islands.”
