Subject to relevant government approvals, the two airlines expect the codesharing deal to begin on February 28. The move comes following a history of interline cooperation and reciprocal frequent flyer partnership between the two airlines.

Air New Zealand CEO Rob Fyfe noted the importance of the codeshare deal. “This new codeshare agreement provides yet further connectivity options for our customers as well as providing important connectivity for Virgin Atlantic customers to New Zealand and also the Cook Islands,” Fyfe said.
