Niue Tourism has confirmed that Air NZ will continue the second weekly flight starting in April of next year.
Niue specialist and travel trade point of contact in New Zealand-Sarah Porter says the second flight confirmation has come at a perfect time.
“I am confident 2024 (and beyond) will be huge. It seems everyone is looking for something a little different, very relaxed, yet full of adventure… and Niue ticks all those boxes and more.” she said.
In a press release last week Niue Tourism said that ‘Delivering a quality, authentic experience whilst visiting Niue is high on the list of priorities for Niue Tourism with some major upgrades to the tourism infrastructure and services being undertaken over the last year.’
The final touches will be complete for 2024 with the resealing of the airport runway due for completion shortly and the terminal receiving an inviting makeover including new seating, lighting, PA system, artwork, and signage that is due for completion in February.
Director of Tourism Micah Fuhiniu-Viviani said that they are absolutely thrilled with the announcement of the second air service from April 2024.
Micah Fuhiniu-Viviani said that the confirmation of the second weekly flight early next year acknowledges the hard work their team and the wider tourism industry has put in last winter which saw travel demand to Niue at an all-time high.
The tourism director is hopeful that Air NZ will continue to use the larger A321 aircraft for both flights in the new year.
Fuhiniu-Viviani said that they appreciate the commitment Air New Zealand has shown to Niue in acknowledging this and making the flight a fixture for 2024.
The twice weekly service will depart Auckland on a Tuesday and Saturday from 2 April, 2024.
