Air New Zealand’s Christchurch to Perth
Seeing off the first Air New Zealand flight to Perth along with the aircraft’s crew were: (left) Kim Grafton, Sales Manager for Air New Zealand; and (centre) Jim Boult, CEO of Christchurch International Airport. Separately, a very happy Matthew Findlay, GM Aeronautical Business Development, Christchurch International Airport was also on-hand to help treat the passengers to a piece of the splendid route launch cake.
- Air New Zealand commenced seasonal (until 26 April) twice-weekly services between Christchurch (CHC) and Perth (PER) on 3 December. Operated on Wednesdays and Saturdays by the Star Alliance carrier’s 234-seat 767-300s, Air New Zealand will face no competition on the 5,050-kilometre sector.
