The Air New Zealand story

Today the Air New Zealand Group operates a global network that provides air passenger services and cargo transport services to, from and within New Zealand with more than 15 million separate customer journeys a year.

Our network expands from New Zealand to Australia, the Pacific, Asia, North America, South America and the United Kingdom.
