Air New Zealand has won an Australian government tender to operate flights from Brisbane and Sydney to Norfolk Island.
The twice weekly services from each city will complement Air New Zealand’s existing weekly service between Auckland and Norfolk Island, a tiny Australian territory roughly 800km northwest of New Zealand.
The services are tentatively scheduled to run from Sydney on Mondays and Fridays and from Brisbane on Tuesdays and Saturdays. They will utilise a 168 seat Airbus A320, the airline said.
The new flights will commence from March 2.
