Air New Zealand launches Norfolk Island routes to Australia
Air New Zealand took over routes between the Australian mainland and Norfolk Island (NLK) in the last week, as the virtual airline Norfolk Air shut down. As of 2 March, the Star Alliance airline flies twice-weekly to Sydney (SYD) and from the following day, also twice-weekly to Brisbane (BNE) from the island in the north of the Tasman Sea, between New Zealand and Australia. Both routes are operated with A320 aircraft. The airline has already served the island from its Auckland hub since 1990.
