Emirates to drop two transtasman services in favour of more Qantas flights

Emirates to drop two transtasman services in favour of more Qantas flights”

Airline president Sir Tim Clark said the it was a "no brainer" to continue sponsorship of the America's Cup holders. "So, we expect this should provide greater opportunities for New Zealand-based cabin crew", says Kelvin. Although the team suffered some massive disappointments until its triumph in Bermuda, Emirates has remained on board with undisclosed support likely to run into millions of dollars. The new services will be operated with a mix of Boeing 737s and Airbus A330s, and will help to back-fill some of the capacity lost by Emirates' decision to cut its daily A380 services on the same routes.

Dubai airline Emirates plans to introduce additional network changes under its joint partnership with Australian airline Qantas, it announced on Wednesday.

Emirates is pulling out of more trans-Tasman flights, canning its Brisbane and Melbourne to Auckland routes from March, but may add more New Zealand to Dubai direct services.

Some of these services will be up-gauged from a 737 to a wide-body A330 aircraft, now being used on some Auckland-Sydney flights.

Qantas' new trans-Tasman services will carry Emirates code and will connect seamlessly to Qantas' London services via Perth or Singapore and Emirates' services between Australia and Europe via Dubai. It flies its staff in and out of New Zealand.

Since then, Emirates has been shedding its trans-Tasman flights, such as in July 2017 when it pulled an A380 off the Sydney-Auckland route.

The premise of the partnership has always been that we could serve our customers better together.

The airlines will shortly seek re-authorisation from relevant regulators, including the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, to continue coordination of pricing, schedules, sales and tourism marketing, under an expanded partnership.

Tickets for Qantas' new Tasman services will be available progressively from 12 October, and Emirates customers with existing bookings impacted by these changes will be re-accommodated onto Qantas services or will be given the option to change their flights.

The choice of three hub options between Australia and UK/Europe - Dubai, Perth and Singapore.

Emirates began direct Auckland-Dubai flights in March 2016, and many passengers from New Zealand shifted to those instead of flying through Australia.

According to the airlines, since 2013 more than 8 million passengers have travelled on the joint network, travelling more than 65 billion kilometres.

Within five years Qantas expects to be flying non-stop from the east coast of Australia to London and NY having already begun talks with aircraft manufacturers to develop a plane with the capability to fly this distance.

The slack from Auckland will be taken up by Qantas, who have a proposed partnership agreement in place with Emirates, pending regulatory approval in Australia.
