SIN-NZ (AKL & CHC) 16 June Cancelled

Hi people:

I was just checking on Auckland Airport's arrival schedules from Singapore today and found no flights arriving! A further search revealed that ALL flights (operated by both SQ and NZ) ex Singapore yesterday (16 June) was cancelled - that includes SIN-AKL and SIN-CHC flights! In fact, it seemed NZ23 AKL-SIN 16 June (which is due to operate the return SIN-AKL as NZ28) did not even operate.

Does anyone have any idea why are those flights cancelled? I don't seem to recall them being a victim of the SARS flight cuts by both airlines.

Any info would be appreciated.

Cheers!

Hi Spotter,
How's my home city?

No idea why, but I assume you're just talking about Air New Zealand flights because I did see a Singapore 777 on approach to AKL yesterday.

Hi Mike:

Your home city's fine - still blowing a bit strong tho at times!

Well, I believe the SQ 777 operated yesterday 16 June, (from and to SIN), but seemed that arrivals today have been cancelled.

I wonder why??

Cheers!

Hi people:

I think I've found part of the answer to my question...

Didn't realise SQ has already started their B777 SIN-CHC-AKL-SIN flights, that's why I can find them on Auckland Airport's web site (live flight schedules). And as I said, a check at Changi Airport revealed SQ285 and SQ297 (SIN-AKL and SIN-CHC respectively) were cancelled. However, just below those 2 flights, SQ287 SIN-CHC-AKL-SIN is listed...! So that answers part of my question.

However, I'm still wondering why then did NZ cancel their flights...?

Due to the downturn in travel to Asia due to SARS, Air New Zealand has reduced their AKL-SIN/vv services to 5 times weekly.

Monday and Wednesday services are not operating in June.

Thanks TG992...

I did think that would seemed the most likely cause, altho I don't remember seeing/reading about it. I may have missed the news/press release then.

Thanks again!
