The good folks of Radelaide will soon be able to spread their wings and enjoy the ‘Dreamliner’ life like Dave the goose.


Air New Zealand has announced it’s placing the 787-9 aircraft on the Adelaide-Auckland route, giving South Australians access to a new inflight experience and extra seats.

keIn addition to introducing a wider range of seating options (Business Premier; Premium Economy; Standard Seat; and Economy Skycouch) into the market, better in-flight air and reduced sound, the plane will add 23 percent on the route during peak season (26 October 2017 to 25 March 2018).


Air New Zealand Chief Revenue Officer Cam Wallace said a scheduled Dreamliner service to South Australia is significant for the state because it will “enhance the experience” of travelling to New Zealand.

“This change is really going to enhance the experience we offer our customers travelling between South Australia and New Zealand as well as onto our North and South America destinations, with more choice about when and how they fly.”

According to Air New Zealand, the new aircraft will also complement the investment Air New Zealand has been making on the ground where the airline recently became the first to offer self-service kiosks at Adelaide Airport, improving the check-in experience for customers.
