Air New Zealand wird erst Ende 2021 nach nonstop nach Newark fliegen …
Die Down Under Airlines lieben ihre Ultra-Langstrecken. Air New Zealand hat noch im November einen sehr steilen Flug von Auckland nach New York geplant:
“”Our non-stop flight will cut travel time by around three hours, putting New Zealand in easy reach of New York and the US Eastern Seaboard,” says Air New Zealand Acting Chief Executive Officer Jeff McDowall. “It’s terrific we can make a seamless journey a reality for Kiwis wanting to experience New York and Americans keen to explore New Zealand and we’ll work with United to grow the route and visitor numbers in both directions.”
Air New Zealand’s new flights to New York go on sale in November 2019. Flight time is expected to be 15 hours 40 minutes northbound and 17 hours 40 minutes southbound.”
Mit der Covid-19 Krise ist nun alles anders. Die Strecke nach Newark wird man frühestens Ende 2021 starten:
“The airline has also taken the decision to postpone the commencement of its non-stop Auckland-New York service from 29 October 2020 until late 2021 at the earliest.
Along with 95 percent of its international flying, Air New Zealand’s Buenos Aires and Los Angeles-London routes are currently suspended through to 30 June due to government travel bans and low demand.
Last year, the airline announced its plan to exit the Los Angeles-London route in October 2020 and in March brought forward the closure of its London cabin crew base.”
