Air NZ to fly Sydney-Rarotonga direct

written by WOFA | January 6, 2010

Air New Zealand announced in late December that it will commence direct services between Sydney and Rarotonga in the Cook Islands from July.

The flights will initially operate once a week during a four month trial period over the late winter peak using 223-seat 767-300s, after which a decision on the longer term future of the services will be made.

“The introduction of direct services will provide a valuable boost to the Cook Islands community and with the support of the Cooks Islands Government and Cook Islands Tourism we will be working hard to make this trial a success,” said Air New Zealand general manager Tasman Pacific airline Glen Sowry.

Air New Zealand will be the only only airline to operate direct services on the route.
