Air New Zealand to fly 787-9 Dreamliner to Honolulu
NOV 23, 2015: Air New Zealand chief sales and commercial officer Cam Wallace said deploying the aircraft on the route will allow the airline to enhance the inflight experience for customers travelling between Auckland and Honolulu.
“We’re looking forward to taking the 787-9 Dreamliner to Honolulu – not only will the aircraft allow us to deliver a significant capacity increase on the route but we’ll also be able to improve the experience our customers have on board with new inflight product, including our award-winning Economy Skycouch and Premium Economy product which offers greater space and comfort,” said Wallace.
The airline’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft will replace Boeing 767-300s currently operating the route.
“Hawaii is a popular holiday destination for Kiwis and Australians alike and these changes will better enable customers based in New Zealand’s regional centres and Australia to fly to Honolulu within the one day, rather than needing to overnight in Auckland as many currently do. In turn, the revised arrival time in Honolulu allows customers to conveniently connect onto domestic services in Hawaii,” said Wallace.
