Air New Zealand is one of the latest airlines to announce huge cuts to its operations calendar in the midst of COVID-19.

Air New Zealand is cutting its long-haul capacity by 85 per cent. Specifically, flights connecting Auckland (AKL), Chicago (ORD), San Francisco (SFO), Tokyo (NRT) and more are being suspended.

On the short-term routes, Tasman and Pacific Island networks are also seeing significant reductions between April and June. Domestic networks are shrinking by about 30 per cent, but will not see any actual suspensions.

The industry is in a period of unprecedented change, and, as a result, the airline asks passengers to refrain from contacting it unless they are due to fly in less than 48 hours.

“We are a nimble airline with a lean cost base, strong balance sheet, good cash reserves, an outstanding brand and a team going above and beyond every day. We also have supportive partners. We are also in discussions with the Government at this time,” said Greg Foran, CEO, Air New Zealand.

Air New Zealand’s strategy includes cost-saving measures like having the board of directors take a 15 per cent pay cut through the end of the year. The company is working with its entire workforce to ensure a satisfying outcome for the entire organisation.

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
