Air New Zealand boosts business flights to and from Palmy

Air New Zealand will operate an additional 12 one-way business timed services per week between Palmerston North and Auckland from mid-August.

The new service will depart Auckland for Palmerston North at 5:50pm Sunday-Friday, with a return service from Palmerston North to Auckland departing at 7:25am Monday-Saturday.

Palmerston North City Mayor Grant Smith says, "It's great additional business capacity has been added to an already busy Palmerston North-Auckland route. Adding these extra services brings much opportunity and needed capacity for business, educational and leisure visitors' travel."

Palmerston North Airport Limited Chief Executive David Lanham says, "To accommodate unprecedented demand from our regional travellers, the airport company has invested significantly in facility upgrades and so we welcome the news of Air New Zealand's investment in additional capacity on the Palmerston North-Auckland route."

The new schedule will take effect from 13 August 2018.
