Good news if you’re searching for airfare to New Zealand!
Air New Zealand announced a new code share agreement with Continental Airlines, effective April 9, for flights within the United States to San Francisco and Los Angeles, connecting to Air New Zealand’s flights to Auckland.
As part of this agreement, Air New Zealand will code share on over 540 flights connecting from destinations within the US to Continentals’ hubs in Houston, Newark and Cleveland.
In return, Continental will code share on Air New Zealand’s flights to Auckland, plus weekly non-stop flights to Rarotonga in the Cook Islands, Apia in Samoa and Tonga. Continental will also code-share on Air New Zealand’s airfare to Australia – its one-stop flights from the US to Australia (connecting in Auckland), domestic New Zealand flights and service between Auckland and Hong Kong.
This agreement compliments Air New Zealand’s existing arrangements with its Star Alliance partners’ US Airways and United Airlines by providing additional domestic US departure airports and will provide convenient connections for traveling both to New Zealand and to the other destinations served by Air New Zealand.
With the new agreement, airfare to New Zealand, the Cook Islands, Tonga and Samoa will be more convenient to travelers throughout the United States. Why wait – start planning your vacation DownUnder now!
