Air New Zealand To Be The First Foreign Airlines Resumes Service To Shanghai From June 22



Following the recent announcement of the “Adjustment of International Passenger Flights” issued by the Civil Aviation Administration of China, Air New Zealand officially announced that it will resume the Auckland-Shanghai passenger route starting this month as the first batch of foreign airlines to be permitted to re-fly to Shanghai.

Air New Zealand Resumes Weekly Service To Shanghai, China Following CAAC “5-1” Rules

At present, the alert level of New Zealand has been adjusted to the lowest level at level 1.

In this case, Air New Zealand has resumed flight operations to 20 domestic destinations on June 8, and will also increase the capacity of domestic flights from July or August, and plans to adjust to 55% of the capacity before the outbreak.

Although the operation of the international route network still takes a long time to get on track, the resumption of service to China will undoubtedly strengthen the airline’s confidence.

In order to ensure the health of all passengers and crew, Air New Zealand has strengthened the cleaning and disinfection of airports, VIP lounges and cabins; disinfectant hand sanitizers are provided at airports, check-in counters and aircraft; protective tool kits are provided on flights, medical gloves, disposable masks and other protective items; all headphones, pillowcases and blankets will be fully disinfected before and after use; the 787-9 Dreamliner flying the Shanghai route uses an advanced air filtration system, which not only purifies the air but also has the function of filtering viruses.

During the reduction and even suspension of passenger flights caused by the pandemic, Air New Zealand adjusted its operating strategy in a timely and flexible manner, using its global route network to help pandemic prevention through cargo services, while also ensuring trade interchange between the world.

Albert K. Field Albert is my name, and travel the world is my game. I began my passion for travel at a very young age, I started this website as a strong means to further explore the world of frequent flyers programs (FFP). The relationship between customers and service providers in the aviation and hospitality industry always seems to be in opposition, however, since the introduction of United Airlines’ Frequent Flyers Programm since 1972*. This has significantly eased the middle spectrum between 2 parties. While the aim of airlines is still to generate more revenue; but for us,as consumers, are also given the opportunity to participate in the bargaining and exploiting from service providers. Living in a world of globalization where big data becomes vital for simulating successful economical activities, most of us will have to travel to other locations whether willingly or unwillingly, while you hearing all this fascinating stories about others, In fact, you too, can blend into the trend. It may not sound like how media illustrates, but indeed there are possibilities for us to have more spontaneous travel without getting held back by financial situation. My website consists of reviews of airline premium cabin products,airport lounges and stay reports of 5-star hotels and their executive lounges across the globe. In addition to all of that, I care the most about their frequent flyers program and loyalty program, which also includes banking partners. Plus, I spontaneously put up reviews and news update regarding premium water brands and restaurants. The purpose of this website is to share all of this information with my audience as well as inviting you to be part of my journey.

    In fact, by accepting inbound passengers now, segregating charges for half a month is also a way to maintain economic development.

      Cousin, what you said makes sense. I also think that Shanghai’s load capacity is almost saturated. But the problem is that CAAC does not have the ability to guide. For foreign airlines, they will only choose the most profitable route for them to resume. Beijing’s first entry point policy plus the current rebound, airline company is definitely not willing to fly to Beijing, and the only destination is Shanghai.

      In addition, they must be more inclined to choose cities with guarantee capabilities, or even have their own bases, so DL, AF, KL as ST members can only fly PVG, SU side gave up flying CAN from the beginning of the five and PEK, it is impossible to change them now. So little Shanghai had to help Beijing to carry it.

Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in China at the end of January, Delta Air Lines announced on January 31 that it will suspend all scheduled passenger flights to China. The flight suspension was extended at the end of April and it has continued till this day. However, as China’s domestic pandemic situation is controlled, the market demand for flights from the United States to China has increased significantly. The situation coincided with the China Civil Aviation Administration’s targeted strict restrictions imposed on the Sino-US routes as an effort to cooperate with the overall national pandemic prevention strategy.
