Air New Zealand has officially launched its service to Haneda Tokyo, in response to increased demand for travel between the two countries.
The new service will depart Auckland on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays from July – May, offering customers a second point of entry to the Japanese capital alongside the airline’s daily flights to Narita Tokyo Airport.
Air New Zealand chief revenue officer Cam Wallace says demand for travel between the two countries continues to soar and the new Auckland-Haneda direct route will boost annual capacity to Japan by 15%.
Organised by Conventions and Incentives New Zealand, the country’s largest tourism trade exhibition kicks off in Auckland next week.
CINZ MEETINGS will connect over 195 exhibitors from 19 regions across New Zealand with more than 500 New Zealand, Australian and international buyers.
Sue Sullivan, chief executive of CINZ, says this year’s show is the largest in its 21 year history.
