Not that I have heard of.
TUI UK was chartering the EAF aircraft in main part due to the lack of seats that were to be available during the Rugby World Cup.
They are not advertising a service for this winter.

As far as im aware, UK charters stopped flying to Oz a few years ago. BY and AIH used to fly there but very cramped conditions for the flight time, I would assume that was the decision to pull the plug on this destinations
Why drive when you can fly?

I have seen a VS 744 in AKL about a year or so ago, it was a charter flight. If it came to AKL, it might go to Oz seeing as we are pretty close by.

They did stop regular service a few years ago with BY and AIH. Last winter was an exception.

By the way Sbe727, CAPS LOCK is on! hehe  Laugh out loud
