Air New Zealand will increase its frequency from 12 to 14 services per week on its Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft from March 2020 to October 2020, bringing the total number of services the two alliance partners operate to 21 per week.

Singapore Airlines will also deploy its larger A380 aircraft to meet strong demand over the Easter 2020 peak, replacing its scheduled Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

Air New Zealand Chief Strategy Networks and Alliances Officer Nick Judd says the changes come in response to growing demand from customers at both ends of the route.

The announcement follows recent capacity increases on the Christchurch – Singapore and Wellington – Singapore routes announced in the last six months, which are also part of the Joint Venture agreement between the two airlines.
