World Routes 2019 is about to begin, so it’s a great time to look at the Australia-New Zealand market. It has been growing, but 1.3 million seats were removed by both Emirates and AirAsia X. Air New Zealand is the leading operator by seats, aided by a strong use of wide-bodies. 23 routes are operated between the countries. Adelaide-Christchurch is the number-one unserved route, with 31,000 indirect passengers before stimulation. Distance, a myriad of easy connections and a lack of competition hamper route development.
