Air New Zealand is marking a decade of linking this country with its home base, with Maureen Kam – the carrier’s country manager, Canada – praising her airline’s “growing strength in the Canadian market” during a Thursday Toronto gathering.
Air New Zealand – which includes Vancouver in its network – has in part gained attention internationally in recent years because of catchy promotions, leading Kam to declare that, “Innovation is at the core of what we do at Air New Zealand.”
Kam singled out wine, scenery and culture among New Zealand attributes, with the Toronto event featuring a Maori dance troupe.
New Zealand last year hosted some 66,000 Canadians.
Kam also said that that it’s “super simple” for those travelling from Vancouver to New Zealand to connect to flights bound for Australia.
