Air New Zealand and United Announced Non-Stop Service

Air New Zealand and United Airlines announced the only non-stop service between New Zealand and the US East Coast will begin in October 2020.

Air New Zealand announced it will begin a three-times weekly new nonstop service between Auckland and New York/Newark, further strengthening the joint venture relationship between Air New Zealand and United Airlines.

In 2018, Air New Zealand and United Airlines announced new year-round nonstop Air New Zealand service between Chicago and Auckland.

"Air New Zealand's nonstop flight will cut travel time by around three hours, putting New Zealand in easy reach of New York and the East Coast United States," said Jeff McDowall, acting CEO, Air New Zealand, "It is terrific we can make a seamless journey a reality for Kiwis wanting to experience New York and for US travellers who have added New Zealand to their bucket list and we look forward to partnering with United Airlines to grow travel in both directions."
