20 December, 2017

Air New Zealand retimed (19-Dec-2017) daily Auckland-Hong Kong service from 23:50 to 08:20 between 16-Dec-2017 and 31-Jan-2018, due to recent events involving Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines powering its Boeing 787-9 aircraft. The carrier stated the retiming is necessary to continue to deliver its international schedule and avoid cancellations. There will be no change to Hong Kong-Auckland return services.
