Air New Zealand (ANZ) will launch a nonstop service between Auckland and the popular holiday destination of Bali.
The service will operate twice weekly between the Auckland and Denpasar airports on Boeing 767-300 aircraft.
ANZ said the service will initially operate seasonally during the peak demand period of June-October. However, there is potential for the service to be operated for the full year if there is sufficient demand.
The inaugural flight will depart on 20 June, subject to government and regulatory approvals.
ANZ last operated Auckland-Bali services in the 1990s using a Boeing 767-200 aircraft.
According to Innovata schedules, no airline presently operates flights between Auckland and Bali.
