Travel agents sceptical on Air NZ cheap fares

From Morning Report, 8:50 am on 27 February 2019

House of Travel says new cut-price Air New Zealand fares will probably only apply to a couple of seats on each flight. The airline has announced its slashing ticket prices on more than 40 domestic routes, by up to half. Its CEO Christopher Luxon says the fare-cuts represent the biggest overhaul of the airline's domestic pricing structure in more than a decade. But the director of House of Travel, Brent Thomas, says it will only make a marginal difference to consumers. He says the impact will depend on how the scheme is rolled out.
