Air New Zealand plans capacity expansion

Article content

3 November 2009

Those planning flights to - and around - New Zealand have the opportunity to enjoy their flights in style in the future, as a leading carrier has announced the expansion of its fleet.

Air New Zealand is to purchase a total of 14 new Airbus A320 aircraft, which will replace its current range of Boeing 737-300 planes.

In addition, the company has secured purchasing rights for an additional 11 airplanes.

Bruce Parton of Air New Zealand said that the move will help to enhance the organisation's environmental credentials, as well as boost capacity.

"It will ensure the airline continues to have one of the youngest fleets in the world and a world-beating product across the entire jet fleet," he added.

In recent days, a poll by the Guardian found that Air New Zealand was the second most-preferred long-haul carrier. It was pipped to the top spot by Singapore Airlines.
