Dunedin is set to welcome more business events than ever before with increased air connectivity and new infrastructure to support events.
In July Air New Zealand will introduce a new schedule of flights between Auckland and Dunedin with three new, direct A320 services travelling this route each week. Additional flights will be added on the Dunedin and Wellington route in October with the introduction of a second direct jet service.
Increased accommodation capacity, including the newly opened Distinction Hotel, new motel complexes and the upcoming expansion of existing providers, will add up to 200 additional rooms to the city.
The number of seats available on the Auckland – Dunedin route will increase from 3rd July with an additional 53,000 seats available annually from 3 July. The Wellington – Dunedin route will have an additional 35,000 seats from 30 October with a new jet service, which will be 30 minutes faster and offer an improved customer experience.
As well as the additional flights, scheduled timings have been amended with many benefits for domestic and trans-Tasman travellers.
Bree Jones of Enterprise Dunedin says the new schedules give delegates more choice, with increased connections throughout New Zealand. “For example Auckland delegates can now take a direct flight home at the end of the business day, without missing any aspect of their conference.”
The changes will make it easier for delegates flying in and out of Dunedin to connect with Trans-Tasman and international routes. Increased domestic services allows for greater connectivity to the eastern sea-board of Australia, which complements the existing direct flights to and from Brisbane.
Dunedin is serviced by a number of other national carriers to offer a comprehensive network of services and connectivity to main centres and regional destinations.
