Extended cooperation with Air New Zealand
08 March 2018
Hi Fly is extending its cooperation with Air New Zealand for the fourth consecutive month performing two daily flights between New Zealand and Australia.
During the months of December 2017, January and February 2018 Air New Zealand has been securing its Auckland-Sydney and Auckland-Perth routes through Hi Fly’s wet-leasing services. As the collaboration goes smoothly and efficiently it has been renewed for the month of March.
For this operation, Air New Zealand is using two Hi Fly’s Airbus A340-300 having also used the customized ‘Turn the Tide on Plastic’ Airbus A330-200 for a period.
On board the leased flights, Hi Fly and Air New Zealand share tasks aiming for the passenger’s maximum satisfaction. Hi Fly cabin crew ensure the aircraft and passenger’s safety at all times while Air New Zealand "ambassadors" welcome passengers on board and make sure they are informed about why the Hi Fly aircraft and team had been brought in.
Air New Zealand is the country’s flag carrier operating a global network that provides air passenger services and cargo transport services to more than 15 million passengers a year.
Hi Fly is an EASA carrier, FAA approved, IOSA certified that operates a large fleet of Airbus A330's and A340's, exclusively available for wet leasing worldwide. Wet leasing (supply of aircraft with crew, maintenance and insurance) is Hi Fly's core business, and has been developed with unmatched operational expertise over a decade of experience.
