AIR NEW ZEALAND ANNOUNCES NEW SERVICE; 1,200 SEATS PER WEEK ADDED TO U.S. CAPACITY

 EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Air New Zealand announced an increase in service between Los Angeles, Honolulu and Auckland, New Zealand, beginning on Nov. 1, 1993.
 More than 1,200 seats per week will be added to Air New Zealand's existing capacity to meet the demand in the U.S. market and to cover any shortfall which may result from Continental Airlines' withdrawal from the South Pacific.
 "The South Pacific is a growing market and these additional services are a direct result of customer demand," said Norm Thompson, senior vice president -- the Americas in El Segundo.
 Two Boeing 767 flights per week (Sundays and Thursdays from Honolulu) will be added between Honolulu and Auckland to its existing schedule and a Boeing 747-200 aircraft will replace the current Boeing 767 flights from Los Angeles through Honolulu, Nadi (Fiji) and Auckland.
 Air New Zealand also announced additional service between New Zealand and Australia which will increase capacity by more than 1,600 seats per week. The carrier will add two Boeing 767 services between Auckland and Sydney on Thursdays and Saturdays, and replace its Auckland to Sydney Monday evening Boeing 767 service with a Boeing 747-200 aircraft.
 For business travelers, this new trans-Tasman schedule will increase Air New Zealand Business Class seats, and add an extra evening flight. The carrier's Australian hub between New Zealand and Asia, Brisbane, will also benefit from the schedule changes with the introduction of an extra Boeing 767 turnaround service each Sunday.
 Additionally, one additional Taiwanese and two new Korean frequencies via Brisbane have been announced.
 To complement the additional passenger services, a number of dedicated cargo services using freighter aircraft to both North America and Australia will be added by the end of the year.
 Air New Zealand's award-winning service and extensive Coral Route network provides more flights more often to more countries in the South Pacific than any other carrier. From Los Angeles, Air New Zealand also flies passengers in nonstop comfort to Frankfurt, Germany, and London, and to the Orient and Southeast Asia via the South Pacific. As an added convenience for U.S. passengers, Delta Air Lines, USAir and Midwest Express frequent flyer members can earn mileage and take advantage of benefits when flying on Air New Zealand.
