The last flight between Wellington and Dunedin will be on 29 May.

The carrier said the return service has run three times a week for three and a half years, but had not not measured up to expectations.

Instead, from October they will introduce three more return flights between Wellington and Queenstown, making six return flights a week.

This route had proved popular with tourists, who saw Queenstown as a must-see while in the country, the airline said.
