Air New Zealand set to reduce further capacity across its network

  • March 16, 2020

Air New Zealand has announced it will further reduce it’s long-haul capacity by 85% following the affects of Covid-19 and subsequent travel bans across countries.

On its long haul network Air New Zealand will reduce capacity by 85% over the coming months and will operate a minimal schedule to allow Kiwis to return home and to keep trade corridors with Asia and North America open.

Among the long haul network capacity reductions, the airline is suspending flights between Auckland and Chicago, San Francisco, Houston, Buenos Aires, Vancouver, Tokyo Narita, Honolulu, Denpasar and Taipei from 30 March to 30 June. It is also suspending its London-Los Angeles service from 20 March (ex LAX) and 21 March (ex LHR) through to 30 June.

The Tasman and Pacific Island network capacity will significantly reduce between April and June.

On the Domestic network, capacity will be reduced by around 30% in April and May but no routes will be suspended.

Details on full schedule changes to follow this week.
