Air New Zealand celebrated 10 years of flying to San Francisco on June 30.
Services commenced on June 30 2004 with three flights per week from Auckland, and is now a daily service. Further, the airline says it plans to expand it further to 10 flights per week from mid-December until March 2015, with additional daily services on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
“The Auckland-San Francisco route is an important part of our long-haul network and a popular year round destination with Kiwis,” airline Chief Sales and Commercial Officer, Cam Wallace said. “San Francisco is a key US gateway for Kiwi travellers and an equally important departure point for Americans looking to visit New Zealand and Australia. The growth of this route is great news for both our airline and New Zealand’s tourism industry.”
