Air New Zealand Cargo awarded more international flights. Air New Zealand will operate approximately 55 international flights per week going forward. The airline carried over 39,000 tonnes of cargo in and out of New Zealand.
Anna Palairet, Air New Zealand General cargo manager says this is great news not only for the airline but for importers and exporters wanting to get their product to key markets around the world.
"It's great to see the extension of the AFC scheme as it provides much-needed support and stability to New Zealand importers and exporters.
"Our flying schedule remains largely the same and it's exciting to see new services to Guangzhou and Perth, as well as some enhancements to the ongoing schedule to improve the connectivity for South Island Exporters.
"With the festive season just around the corner, these additional flights will be instrumental in helping New Zealand exporters get their produce on holiday tables around the world. We'll be sending more than 1,000 tonnes of lamb up to the UK in time for Christmas and more than 3,500 tonnes of stone fruit around the globe with a majority moving into China for the Chinese New Year."
