Singapore Airlines and Air New Zealand Come Together for Third Daily Flight between Singapore and Auckland

To boost capacity on Singapore and Auckland route by up to 40 percent and also to add more than 165,000 seats annually between the two cities, Singapore Airlines and Air New Zealand are all set to launch a third daily flight between Singapore and Auckland effective from October 28th, 2018.

Along with a revision of current schedules, the additional service will shorten connection times and improve connectivity through the Singapore hub. During the peak Northern Winter season (28 October 2018 – 30 March 2019), the new service will operate daily, and during the Northern Summer season (31 March 2019 – 26 October 2019) the new service will operate five times per week.

During peak months the airlines will jointly operate a total of 35 return services a week between Singapore and New Zealand, including Christchurch and Wellington flights. With a third service operated by Singapore Airlines during the Northern Winter season and Air New Zealand during the Northern Summer season, the airline will continue to operate one daily return service each on the Singapore-Auckland route under their joint venture alliance.

Depending on the season, Singapore Airlines will operate a mix of Airbus A380s and Boeing 777-300ERs. Air New Zealand will operate its new configuration 787-9 aircraft, offering more Premium Economy and Business Premier Seats than its current 787-9 fleet.
