Air New Zealand (NZ) has announced a capacity increase between Auckland and several North American destinations, after Qantas decided to withdraw its Auckland-Los Angeles route in May.

This move closely follows the mid-February collapse of Australian regional Air Australia (formerly Strategic Airlines), which grounded its fleet Feb. 17, after it said there were “no funds available to meet operational expenses.”

NZ will increase its 12X-weekly Los Angeles-Auckland (AKL) service to 14X-weekly in mid-June, using a combination of 304-seat Boeing 777-200 and 332-seat 777-300 aircraft. It will begin using 379-seat 747-400 on its San Francisco-AKL service, moving the route to 5X-weekly beginning in April, and upgrading to a daily service during peak demand periods. Its AKL-Vancouver service, which has previously operated between 2X- and 4X-weekly, will move to a 5X-weekly 777-200 service during the peak December-February season.

“Air New Zealand is able to add further capacity into North America if there is sufficient demand,” the carrier said.
