The new year has ushered in new pursuits for Star Alliance carriers Air New Zealand and Singapore Airlines. The two carriers have formed an alliance under which each airline will operate one daily return service from Auckland to Singapore. Singapore Airlines will also operate a daily return service from Christchurch to Singapore. Through this new alliance, the carriers aim to increase passenger capacity between New Zealand and Singapore by up to 30 percent annually. Additionally, codesharing allows customers of both carriers to enjoy increased route options. The first service under the alliance, Air New Zealand flight NZ88, departed from Auckland on Tuesday, January 6.
