Air New Zealand has once again taken the number one spot as the country’s most reputable company, according to a survey by research consultancy AMR.
Every year, AMR asks the public for their opinions on the top 25 organisations across a number of areas such as products, innovation, and performance. It’s the third year in the top spot for the airline, with survey respondents citing the company’s prices, service, planes, financial results and safety videos as reasons behind the votes. Air NZ last held first place in 2011 and 2012, but is generally in the top three with a second place ranking in 2015.
In an AMR press release, Managing Director Oliver Freedman explained the win, saying, “for Air New Zealand, the constantly high level of customer service has been a key reputational driver”.News, Travel and Tourism News | Tagged Air New Zealand, Cruising, Dunedin, Telegraph Travel Awards, Wellington | Leave a reply
In case you missed the exciting announcement late last week, Air New Zealand is set to start flying direct to Vietnam. The airline is launching a seasonal service between Auckland and Ho Chi Minh City from June to October next year. Flying three days a week, the flight time will be approximately 11 hours.
Air New Zealand chief executive Christopher Luxon says the new service “provides the ideal gateway” for Kiwis to experience Vietnam’s myriad attractions.
“Vietnam is an increasingly popular leisure destination with the number of Kiwis visiting the country up about 20 percent in the past year,” Mr Luxon said in a statement.
“It’s a holiday spot that has huge appeal and we’re confident that by offering a direct service even more Kiwis will be keen to explore it.”
Mr Luxon added that the direct flight will also make it easier for Vietnamese travellers to visit New Zealand.News | Tagged Air New Zealand, Auckland Airport, Flight Centre, Telegraph Travel Awards, TIA, Tourism New Zealand | Leave a reply
