Cut price Air New Zealand in the wings?


Air New Zealand confirms it's considering move to low-cost budget structure for flights under four hours



22 March 2002

Air New Zealand does not believe becoming a budget carrier would necessarily mean big job losses.

The airline has confirmed one option it is considering is moving to a low-cost budget structure, at least for flights that take less than four hours.

However Air New Zealand stresses the low-cost option is only one of several being looked at.

Spokesman David Beatson says becoming a budget carrier does not mean fewer jobs, because smaller aircraft are operated at a higher frequency.

He says whatever Air New Zealand does, it has to move quickly, or risk being squeezed out by Qantas and Virgin Blue.

Never say never TG992. If they do not do something Qantas will nail them to the ground. No more said on the subject
