Air New Zealand: Non-stop service between Vancouver + Auckland
Air New Zealand begins service between Vancouver and Auckland on Nov. 2, 2007. The airline will provide three non-stop flights each week between the two cities. Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays until March, and July-August; and twice weekly for the remaining months.
Star Alliance partner Air Canada will be code sharing on this service, which will be aboard the Boeing 777-200ER aircraft. It accommodates 313 passengers, has premier entertainment options, award-winning food and wine and lie-flat beds in Business Premier.
Flight time to New Zealand from Vancouver will be just over 14 hours. Typically, flights via San Francisco or Los Angeles are around 20 hours.
The tour begins at the CPR Steamship Terminal Building, located across the street from the BC Parliament Buildings pictured here. ©SueFrause...
