Air New Zealand becomes latest Patron Member of the ALABC

We are delighted to announce that Air New Zealand has become the ALABC’s latest Patron Member, as it proceeds with putting in place all of the arrangements for the expected December launch of direct flights from Auckland to Buenos Aires.

The much-anticipated service will see Air New Zealand and its partner airlines connect flights from Australia and cities throughout Asia to this new three times weekly return service. The service will be offered on an intended code-share arrangement with Aerolíneas Argentinas, with tickets on sale in March and flights commencing in December, subject to necessary approvals, which are expected to be forthcoming. The direct service will have a flight time of around 12 hours and will see Air New Zealand will code share on Aerolíneas Argentinas’ services to Brazil.

Air New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Christopher Luxon says the new destination, the airline’s 28th international port, opens up an exciting new world for travellers from both New Zealand and Australia. “South America was once the domain of the intrepid explorer, but the direct service to Buenos Aires, with a flight time of around 12 hours, means a quick and action packed getaway is now a reality. Buenos Aires is the most popular tourist city in South America and is a perfect stepping stone for those who then want to explore the country, or continent, further.”

“We’ve been very clear about our aspirations for growth in the Pacific Rim . . . . . this new route to Buenos Aires further strengthens our network in the Pacific Rim. Argentina is an exciting new destination for New Zealanders, and with seamless one-stop connectivity through Auckland it will provide a fantastic opportunity for Australians as well.” The service will also enable Argentineans to travel directly to New Zealand and then on to Australia on Air New Zealand’s extensive trans-Tasman network, or to Singapore and South East Asia.
