Virgin Australia adds more NZ routes to Air New Zealand codeshares

Virgin Australia adds more NZ routes to Air New Zealand codeshares

IN BRIEF | Virgin Australia is expanding its NZ network with the addition of 17 more routes to its codeshare arrangement with Air New Zealand.

While Virgin already codeshares to all of Air New Zealand's domestic ports, the new routes between selected cities will streamline trans-Tasman travel.

For example, Virgin Australia customers wanting to fly from Brisbane to Hamilton previously had to transit through Wellington – the new arrangement goives them the option to transit via  Auckland, which offers alternative flight schedules and a shorter overall travel time.

Here's a list of the new Air New Zealand routes which now now carry VA flight numbers as part of a trans-Tasman booking:

  • Auckland to Hamilton, Rotorua
  • Christchurch to Hamilton, Napier, New Plymouth, Nelson, Palmerston North, Rotorua, Tauranga
  • Wellington to Napier, New Plymouth, Nelson, Palmerston North, Rotorua, Whangarei
  • Palmerston North to Hamilton, Nelson

    Will be good if they code-share on AirNewZealand flights from AKL to the USA (LAX / SFO and beyond)

    Probably more a question of 'when' :)

    Isn't Virgin Australia already wedded to Delta across the Pacific?

    True, but then again they codeshare on both EY and SQ to Europe.
