Air New Zealand and Singapore Airlines

Some 14 years since it acquired a 25% stake in Air New Zealand (which it lost when the New Zealand government bailed out the airline) Singapore Airlines is once again in partnership with the State carrier.  The New Zealand Minister of Transport has given the approval of a tie-up. 

Both airlines are part of Star Alliance.

The association will lead to increased flight frequency between Singapore and New Zealand and provide other consumer benefits, such as improved connections through reciprocal codeshare ties.  The Competition Commission of Singapore had earlier given its OK.
As part of the arrangement Air New Zealand will fly the Auckland – Singapore route again and Singapore Airlines will operate the Airbus A380 to New Zealand for the first time.  www.singaporeair.com   www.airnewzealand.com
