Conditional to regulatory approvals, a partnership with Air New Zealand, Air China plans to include direct flights to Auckland daily from Beijing sometimes later in the year.
Today, the airlines released particulars related to the projected deal that could come into effect from December.
The flights if started will be in addition to the already flying services of Air New Zealand that travel on the Shanghai Auckland route. The new plan is aimed at doubling the capacity of passengers between China and New Zealand. The flights on the route promises a $200 million boost in tourism.

Song Zhiyong, the chief executive of Air China said that the airlines are making an effort to offer better air connectivity between the nations to keep up with the increasing travellers' demands from both markets.
