Extra Flights For All Blacks Fans

7th Aug 2003

Support for the All Blacks has seen Air New Zealand put on an extra 12 flights to carry rugby fans to and from Saturday’s Tri Nations Test against the Springboks in Dunedin.
Senior Vice President Sales and Distribution Norm Thompson said that nearly all regular scheduled flights to and from Dunedin in the lead-up to the test match were booked out weeks ago. To meet customer demand, Air New Zealand has scheduled extra flights from Wellington and Christchurch to get rugby fans to and from the clash.

“It’s great to see Kiwi rugby fans getting behind the All Blacks.Ê We’re pleased to be able to have had the ability to put on extra capacity, so that the All Blacks have maximum support when they show the Springboks why locals call Carisbrook the House of Pain” Mr Thompson says.
