Together we're bringing Asia and beyond closer to New Zealand.
Air New Zealand and Singapore Airlines jointly announced the launch of a third daily flight between Auckland and Singapore from 28 October 2018, boosting capacity on the route by up to 40 per cent and adding more than 165,000 seats annually between the two cities.
The additional service, along with a revision of current schedules, will shorten connection times and improve connectivity through the Singapore hub.
The new service will operate daily during the peak Northern winter season (28 October 2018 - 30 March 2019), and five times per week during the Northern summer season (31 March 2019 - 26 October 2019). 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.
