Kiwis will again be able to fly direct to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast next winter.
Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia have confirmed a second season of direct twice weekly services from Auckland from mid-June to October. The season is extended to include the New Zealand October school holidays.
Air New Zealand Australasia manager Bruce Parton says the route has been popular with New Zealand holiday makers. "The Sunshine Coast has long been a haven for Kiwis wanting a break from the long New Zealand winter. Now they can do so without the 1.5 hour drive to and from Brisbane," he said.
New Zealand is the leading international market for Sunshine Coast with 76,000 Kiwis travelling to the region last financial year.
An A320 aircraft will operate the service.
