Air New Zealand Adds 6000 More Seats From Christchurch To Fiji

Air New Zealand will fly nearly 6000 extra seats on its seasonal service between Christchurch and Fiji in 2018, an increase of more than 40 percent.

The airline currently operates two services per week from Christchurch to Nadi International Airport between July and October, increasing to three services per week at peak times.

Next year Air New Zealand’s Christchurch-Fiji service will start five weeks earlier on 26 May, with up to four services per week in the busy school holiday period.

Air New Zealand chief revenue officer Cam Wallace says the airline has tripled capacity between Christchurch and Fiji over the past five years.

“Fiji is a clear favourite for Kiwi holidaymakers. We’re pleased these extra flights will offer South Island travellers greater flexibility for their holiday plans.”

The new flights will be operated by the Air New Zealand’s A320 aircraft.

In response to the announcement, Fiji Airways managing director and chief executive officer Andre Vilijoen said: “Competition is good, it’s healthy and keeps us on our toes.”

Fiji Airways flies three times a week from Christchurch to Nadi, on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, year round.

The flights are operated by its Boeing 737 aircraft.
