Air New Zealand has been in the airline industry game for nearly 60 years, but with that in mind, where does the Auckland-based airline fly to?

To establish this, we will take a look at the airline’s fleet, and how this enables the current operation of their route network.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

The Current Air New Zealand Fleet…

In total, in terms of where do Air New Zealand fly to, they operate services to 50 destinations on both year-round and seasonal basis from their hubs of Auckland, Christchurch & Wellington.

The Auckland-based carrier has been able to produce a strong international & domestic network.

As we can see, a lot of the international network is focused on the U.S & Australia.

The carrier has made some announcements this year already pertinent to their ever-evolving route network.

Back in April, they revealed that services to Hobart and Seoul would return on a seasonal basis.

On top of this, just a few weeks ago, they revealed that flights to Denpasar, Bali would be extended to year-round.

Finally, Auckland-based Air New Zealand will be focusing on Tokyo, Singapore & Taipei for the Winter 2024/25 season.

So whilst 50 destinations is a lot, the airline is continually looking at options to expand their operation further.

In conclusion, the Air New Zealand operation out of Auckland, Christchurch & Wellington is interesting.

Over the last 60 years, the airline has been able to form a foundation for travel out of the island-based country.

With a strong international presence, this has been providing much needed boosts to the tourism industry in the country in recent years.

After the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, travel into New Zealand continues to boom, and the airline is taking advantage of that, that’s for sure.
