Next Generation Boeing 737-800
We now have a fleet of eight new next generation Boeing 737-800 aircraft on our trans Tasman routes from Auckland and Wellington. As well as a few friendly locals on board, you can look forward to full service in Business and Economy with food, drinks and the very latest on demand in-flight entertainment systems offering you more than 300 entertainment options, and seating styled by international design icon Marc Newson.
And to make sure these new aircraft feel at home in this part of the world we've named our aircraft after six famous New Zealanders: Jean Batten, Sir William Hudson, Katherine Mansfield, William Pickering, Abel Tasman, Sir Edmund Hillary, Ernest Rutherford and Charles Upham.
