Air New Zealand to move LAX operations to new terminal in Dec

by amit.uniyal 1. December 2014 08:51

Air New Zealand is excited to get a new home at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The airline recently announced that it will be shifting its flight operations at the airport to the newly revamped Tom Bradley International Terminal. The airline will begin operating flights from the new terminal effective from December 3, 2014.

With the flight operations from the new LAX terminal, the airline is exuberant and hopes to open a new exciting chapter. The airline has been providing flights services from Auckland to Los Angeles for nearly 50 years now.

Carrie Hurihanganui, Air New Zealand’s General Manager Customer Experience, said that the new arrangement would prove to be beneficial for the customers. The present move is aimed at providing better connectivity to the customers to reach various destinations within the United States.

The customers while taking Air New Zealand flights from the new terminal can also look forward to other benefits as well such as vastly improved and hassle free transit experience, faster processing, a state-of-the-art lounge, and above 150,000 square feet of dining and retail space provided in the Great Hall.

Hurihanganui further said that the transiting customers will be provided greater access to the new expansive terminal while waiting to board their connecting flights. Earlier, such passengers had to remain confined in a dedicated transit facility before boarding their connecting flights.

Those customers who are eligible would also be provided admission to the Star Alliance-operated lounge at the Los Angeles airport. The lounge is being presently managed by Air New Zealand itself on behalf of Star Alliance.

The airline’s investment in the new LAX terminal is being seen as yet another move to expand operations in North America.

Currently, Air New Zealand is operating twice daily flights between Los Angeles and Auckland utilizing a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. The airline has also increased frequencies on Los Angeles-Auckland route for the forthcoming 2015 Northern Summer schedule by 20 percent. The airline will be offering three extra weekly services on the route.
