Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia have announced changes to one of their key alliance routes driven by an improved demand outlook.

The two airlines are set to provide customers with an expanded schedule of flights on the Auckland-Brisbane route, with up to five extra flights a week delivering an additional 38,000 seats between April and October 2018. This means customers will now be able to choose from up to 34 return services per week.

In addition, Virgin Australia will be re-timing its weekday Auckland-Brisbane service to provide a better evening schedule proposition for the alliance, with the choice of departure times of 4:00pm, 6:00pm and 7:30pm allowing for more flexibility in travel times for customers.
