Air New Zealand hikes prices

9th Jul 2008

Air New Zealand is raising its fare across a number of routes from 17 July in response to continued high jet fuel prices.
Airfares sold in New Zealand for Tasman and domestic flights will rise by an average 3% while fares to North America, Asia and United Kingdom will rise by an average 5%.

“Air New Zealand regrets having to lift fares,” said Air New Zealand Deputy CEO Norm Thompson. “However with jet fuel now above US$170 a barrel we cannot continue to absorb the significantly higher cost of fuel, of which this increase will only partially recover.”

The increases will apply for tickets purchased after 17 July, 2008.
