Air New Zealand will finally resume its A320 service between Auckland and Invercargill on Monday afternoon.
The service, which first launched in August 2019, will land on the North Island at 12:40pm with the return departing Invercargill at 1:25pm. Moving forward, the service will operate on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
The resumption is another significant moment as the airline rebuilds its network towards its target of getting back to 55 per cent capacity in August.
Invercargill Mayor Tim Shadbolt said it’s “crucial” to the country’s economic recovery that people begin to resume exploring the nation.
