AIRLINE NEWS

Both Air New Zealand and Qantas will be increasing their flights on the Tasman. Initially New Zealand to Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Gold Coast will ramp up for March and once the level of demand is established other destinations such as Adelaide and Hobart may re-appear. Perth is subject to Western Australia border limitations.

For Domestic New Zealand travellers flying Air New Zealand we encourage better use of the fully refundable airfares. The airline is out of the ‘Covid 19 cancellation policy’ era and therefore the actual rules of the airfare you have purchased take priority – eg cancellation penalties. A special note that if cancelling your flight it must be done the day prior to travel; a previous fare rule allowed same day cancellation/change on the lower fare buckets but this no longer applies.

Singapore Airlines invitation only PPS as well as Kris Flyer elite tier status benefits have been extended until February 2024.
