Air New Zealand 'largely likely' to be based around Australasia and Pacific Islands: CCO

2 September, 2020

Air New Zealand CCO Cam Wallace, speaking at the CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit, stated (02-Sep-2020) "it looks largely likely" the Air New Zealand business will be more orientated around "Australasia and the Pacific Islands" as well as domestic, within the short to medium term. Mr Wallace said it is not a "bad thing for Air New Zealand" as its strength is closer to home, and when the carrier can "finally get some bubbles between New Zealand and Australia" as well as the Pacific Islands, the airline may deploy additional capacity into "those short haul international markets".
