Air New Zealand to launch Niue service

12:00 pm on 10 October 2005

Air New Zealand will start a weekly service to Niue from next month.

The flight will leave Auckland on Friday night and return from Niue early in the morning.

The service will replace flights by Samoa's international airline Polynesian Airlines which will merge with Virgin Blue of Australia.

Niue's premier, Young Vivian, says the new flights by Air New Zealand are a milestone and he says he is delighted at the decision.
