Air New Zealand launches online airport taxi booking service

As electronic consumer technology gets more and more involved with airline passenger assistance Air New Zealand (ANZ) has come up with an innovation that is bound to catch on.

ANZ travellers to and from Auckland, Christchurch, Queenstown and Wellington airports are now being offered a fixed price cab ride with the guarantee of the lowest available rate from the participating transport provider.

In practice this means travellers no longer have to pay extra to travel at peak times.  Air New Zealand GM Australasia Bruce Parton says: “It’s one low fixed price, booked and paid for in advance, regardless of what time of day you’re travelling.  So if you travel at peak time you don’t end up paying extra to sit in traffic.

“Along with the lowest available rate, there’s also an on-time guarantee.  If you’ve booked transport to the airport and it’s not at the specified pick up point within 15 minutes of the booked time the whole trip is free.” www.airnz.co.nz/taxi
