The airline will move to 14 return services per week on the Auckland - Los Angeles route from mid June, including three flights on Saturdays and a double daily service most other days of the week. The additional Los Angeles services will be operated with a combination of 304 seat Boeing 777-200 and 332 seat Boeing 777-300 aircraft.

Air New Zealand will deploy its 379 seat Boeing 747-400 aircraft on the Auckland - San Francisco route, operating the service five times per week from April and moving to a daily service during peak demand times.

The Auckland - Vancouver route will move to five services per week over the peak December - February period using Boeing 777-200 aircraft. Previously this route has operated between two and four times a week depending on seasonal demand.

The additional flights are on sale now and Air New Zealand is able to add further capacity into North America if there is sufficient demand.
