Air New Zealand celebrates 75 years


Air New Zealand has kicked off its 75-year celebrations with birthday festivities including a mid-air game show, a chance for customers to win back their fare, and a themed flight across the Tasman.

Customers who flew domestically on 30 April enjoyed a revival of Kiwi quiz show ‘It’s in the Bag’ on a surprise and delight basis on main city and regional services. Customers were given the chance to turn contestant and choose between ‘the money’ (Airpoints Dollars) or ‘the bag’ (a mystery prize).

The airline also commemorated its landmark flight with a themed Auckland–Sydney service. Customers were treated to a 1940s-themed menu, a mid-air fashion show of the airline’s uniforms through the decades and other special surprises.

The airline has also announced it will bring its retrospective exhibition, currently on display at the national museum in Wellington, to Auckland where it will open at Auckland War Memorial Museum on 20 November 2015.

Today’s celebrations are just one highlight of a year of activities to mark Air New Zealand’s 75th year, including the retrospective exhibition, the release of a book ‘Air New Zealand: Celebrating 75 Years’, commemorative stamps issued with New Zealand Post and a promotion in the UK which saw 75 lucky customers grab return fares to New Zealand for just 75GBP.
