In a separate announcement to ASX, Air New Zealand also released an investor update for April 2019.
The company in collaboration with ChristchurchNZ recently launched a campaign ‘Christchurch. Explore something new’, aimed at inspiring New Zealanders to visit Christchurch. The campaign was launched after the airline and city agencies signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) committing to exploring joint enhanced freight and passenger capacity, marketing activity, and other signature events.
As per the report, the campaign is designed to showcase all the new experiences across Christchurch. It would reportedly be show reeled through a featured video, eye-catching images of the city, and a complete online game in which players would reportedly get the chance to win a trip for four to Christchurch from anywhere in New Zealand and daily prizes of 100 Airpoints Dollars™.
Annabelle Fowler, General Manager Market Development and Retail Sales of AIZ, stated that the overall objective of the campaign is to supercharge tourism in Christchurch as the city has demonstrated outstanding developments in the recent past. New restaurants, artworks, bars have been opened at a phenomenal rate, not seen elsewhere in New Zealand.
Classic Christchurch and Canterbury region are the centre of attraction of the city, which would be presented as the key highlights in the campaign to encourage kiwis to visit Christchurch.
To count on some recent progress of the company, launch of new check-in area at Tauranga Airport comes under the limelight. After closely working with the airport authorities for over 24 months, Air New Zealand opened almost triple the size of a new check-in area at Tauranga Airport.
