Air New Zealand reports spiking travel from US south, mid-west and mid-Atlantic regions

    Air New Zealand chief revenue officer Cam Wallace reported the carrier’s operation to Houston is “unlocking huge demand for travel to New Zealand from across the South, Mid-west and Mid-Atlantic regions”. Annual arrivals to New Zealand from Texas have increased 21% year-on-hear, and are up 25% from New York. Houston also offers New Zealand travellers better onward connections to US East Coast destinations like New York, Boston and Miami. Air New Zealand recently launched its global marketing campaign ‘A Better Way to Fly in North America’, marketing to Americans and Canadians to travel with the airline to New Zealand and Australia.
