  • Air New Zealand lifting capacity to Houston in 2018

    Air New Zealand is adding extra flights to Houston in 2018 in response to strong demand.

    The Star Alliance member plans to increase its five times a week service on the Auckland-Houston route to daily or six times weekly during a six-month period from from March 25 to October 27 2018.

    This represented an additional 16,000 seats on the route, Air New Zealand said on Wednesday.

    The airline started serving Houston, a major hub for its alliance partner United, in December 2015 with Boeing 777-200ER equipment. However, from December 2017 it is switching to the Boeing 787-9 with that features a more premium heavy configuration.

    Air New Zealand chief revenue officer Cam Wallace said there was strong demand at both ends of the route.
