Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia plan to once again operate seasonal non-stop flights between Christchurch and Perth beginning later this year, following the success of this summer’s inaugural service.
This second direct seasonal service, which will use the Boeing 767, is set to operate twice a week from December 13 until April 25 next year, Air New Zealand chief executive officer Christopher Luxon announced on Wednesday in Christchurch.
“In this coming season we will offer more than 17,000 seats directly linking the two regions, and we expect the flights to be popular once again with both leisure and business travellers,” he said.
The inaugural season of Christchurch/Perth flights ends in late April this year.
