Understanding New Zealand’s travel dynamics from the aviation and corporate traveller perspectives

The New Zealand travel industry is undergoing some dynamic changes, with the Trans-Tasman route set for renewed vigour in the wake of the dissolution of Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia’s partnership. What will this mean for the key players – and consumers – in this strategically important market and how will the proposed new domestic codeshare between Air New Zealand and Qantas impact the competitive landscape?

It is against this industry backdrop that CAPA – Centre for Aviation has assembled a distinguished line up of aviation leaders to dissect the state of New Zealand aviation. They will be joined by corporate travel professionals who will discuss the outlook for air, accommodation and ground transportation and share concrete insights into achieving savings in your travel programme.

The CAPA New Zealand Aviation Summit and CAPA New Zealand Corporate Travel Summit will take place at the Hilton Auckland on 17-Oct-2018 and 18-Oct-2018 and will bring together an expected delegation of 200+ senior decision makers from across the entire travel ecosystem – from airlines, airports and hoteliers through to intermediaries and travel managers.
