Air New Zealand has been awarded more international cargo flights under the Government’s Maintaining International Air Connectivity (MIAC) scheme. With the scheme extended through to October, the airline will operate around 30 flights per week to 13 destinations including Los Angeles, Hong Kong, and Shanghai, as well as maintaining air connectivity with key Pacific ports. With the trans-Tasman and Cook Islands bubbles now well under way, these services are currently operating outside of the MIAC scheme.
Air New Zealand General Manager Cargo Anna Palairet says it’s encouraging to have been awarded more flights under the Government scheme. “MIAC is helping our import and export community maintain essential trade with key international markets during an extended period of disruption and we’re really proud to be part of making that happen. Operating these services also allows us to bring Kiwis home where other commercial services haven’t been able to operate.”Email Post to a Friend
