emirates-qantasAmong a suite of enhancements aimed at providing more convenience and better connections for travellers to and from New Zealand, Qantas has retimed its existing Christchurch-Sydney service enabling more international connections from Sydney and will launch a new Perth - Auckland service.

Emirates will continue to operate 28 flights a week to New Zealand, with daily flights to Auckland from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane; and the daily flight between Sydney and Christchurch. From 1st October all Emirates flights to Auckland will be operated by an Airbus A380. Qantas operates double daily A380 services from Dubai to Australia with connections to over 100 flights per week to New Zealand.

Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline, said the code-sharing, aligned fares and frequent flyer benefits would all add value for the customers of both Emirates and Qantas.

“Our new Auckland-Perth service will cater for demand over the busy holiday season and our new trans-Tasman schedule offers better flight times and more connections to flights both in Australia and around the world,” said Mr Joyce

“The new Qantas and Emirates schedule offers around 130 services per week from Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington and Queenstown across the Tasman to a joint network covering more than 175 destinations in Australia, Asia, the Middle East, North Africa, the UK and Europe,” added Mr Joyce.

Emirates’ trans-Tasman services are operated by Airbus A380 and Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, while Qantas’ services are operated by a dedicated fleet of next generation Boeing 737-800s.
