AIR New Zealand will change the flight number of its Singapore-Auckland route and waiving two existing charges levied on passengers ex-Christchurch to Singapore. With effect from March 30, the Singapore-Auckland flight number NZ24 will be amended to NZ28. There is no change to the Auckland-Singapore flight numberNZ23.

Meanwhile, passengers travelling on NZ23 ex-Christchurch to Singapore will not need to pay CE and WX taxes. NZ23 is considered an international flight and therefore no domestic passenger levy (WX) will apply. On arrival at Auckland Airport, passengers on transit need not clear immigration and security, which means no domestic security screening levy (CE) will apply either. When bookings are made in GDSs, the CE and WX taxes will not be quoted.

AIR New Zealand has reported a net profit after tax of NZ$94 million (US$52.6 million) for the six months ending December 31, 2002. Revenues earned over that period amounted to NZ$1.84 billion, up two per cent, costs were at NZ$1.43 billion, down eight per cent.

When compared to the previous corresponding period, overall capacity for the period decreased by 2.4 per cent to 14.9 billion available seat kilometres. Traffic increased 7.3 per cent to 11.4 billion revenue passenger kilometres. The resulting passenger load factor of 76.2 per cent was up 6.9 percentage points on the prior period.
