New Zealand travel 'to get easier'

Article content

22 December 2009

Those considering a holiday near New Zealand are about to benefit from a new flight being launched from Sydney, Australia.

Air New Zealand will be providing the first ever direct route between the two nations, which is scheduled to operate once a week between July and October next year as part of a four-month trial.

The organisation's Glen Sowry confirmed the airline already does a significant amount of business between Australia and the Cook Islands through the city of Auckland.

He remarked: "The introduction of direct services will provide a valuable boost to the Cook Islands community."

Flight times are expected to be six hours from Sydney and seven hours and 15 minutes from the island of Rorotonga, with 17 return services being made available during the test period.

Acting chief executive of Tourism New Zealand Tim Hunter recently commented that the country has emerged from the economic downturn with more vigour than expected.
