Air New Zealand has announced it will increase its capacity on services to Japan by 30 per cent from November.
The airline said the increase is in response to a recent advertising campaign conducted with Tourism New Zealand.
“As a result Air New Zealand will add around 30 per cent extra capacity to the Japan route between mid-November this year and the end of March 2015,” General Manager Japan Scott Carr said in a statement. “This will also see the airline operate a year-round daily direct service between Japan and New Zealand for the first time since 2007.”
The airline will operate a daily service between Auckland and Tokyo Narita, and a thrice weekly service between Christchurch and Narita.
