Qantas to connect Auckland and New York
Qantas announced the launch of a new route between Auckland and New York commencing 14 June 2023 using Boeing 787-9 aircraft, initially operating three days weekly. Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said “We can’t wait to return to New York, and it’s made possible by the delivery of new aircraft, which have been caught up in delays that have impacted lots of airlines. Customer feedback on our direct London and Rome services show how well suited our Dreamliner cabins are to longer international flights like these, which is helped by the fact we designed them with more room and fewer seats than most of our competitors. We think this route will be very popular with Australians given the opportunity to connect via Auckland and it also gives New Zealanders more choice.”
