25 March 2021 - 19:00
Air New Zealand CEO Greg Foran says he expects this new route to be a great attraction for both Kiwis and Tasmanians.
This route will be a much-needed economic boost for New Zealand's tourism industry. Our Hobart-Auckland route will open a direct link between 540,000 potential Tasmanian tourists and our biggest city, with regional hot spots like Queenstown and Rotorua a short skip away,' said Air New Zealand CEO Greg Foran.
'We'll be providing flights on Thursdays and Sundays to make the most of domestic connectivity and provide the best long weekend options for travellers.'
Subject to final contract agreement, and government and regulatory approval, the airline will be flying year-round between Auckland and Hobart twice weekly using its A320neo fleet.
