Air New Zealand has announced a huge increase in seat numbers.

Over the weekend Air New Zealand opened up an extra 40,000 seats across its services. Air NZ was also reopening 14 new destinations that had closed down due to Covid-19.

By the upcoming school holidays, domestic routes would be back to 100 percent pre-Covid-19 capacity; though the Tasman and the Pacific Islands, around 75 percent of pre-Covid-19 levels; the rest of international routes about 50 percent of pre-Covid-19.

However, they did warn of an increase in the cost of tickets due to fuel prices.

It used to cost Air New Zealand just over US$40,000 to fill up a Dreamliner plane. Now it’s about US$96,000. That means that tickets prices have to increase by around 20%.

  1. They really need to bring back the 747s that they used in the 90s. That thing carries more than the 787s or the 777s, which is probably their biggest widebody plane they own. Bring back the 747 Air NZ.
