Air NZ-Virgin deal seen as optimistic for the next year
Forsyth Barr broker Peter Young alleged that yesterday there was an approval for the Air New Zealand-Virgin Blue transtasman alliance. It was one of several factors which can lead to a positive 2011 for the countrywide carrier.
Spokeswoman Danielle Keighery assumed that in coming year from March-April surely there would be some good signs to be seen.
Recently transport Minister Steven Joyce has approved an air agreement between Air New Zealand and the Virgin Blue group. This is done so as to operate integrated transtasman services.
It is hoped that this approval will join Air New Zealand and Virgin Blue and make them able to work together on the services and fares which they offer on transtasman services. There is also a recent approval from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
Mr. Young foresees that in coming few years there may be further growth from long-haul visitor arrivals. This will be done by the help of the introduction of the new aircraft and the 2011 Rugby World Cup. This will increase the number of passenger intended for Air NZ between July and November next year.
