General information

   

Air New Zealand

Air New Zealand was founded in 1940 under the name of Tasman Empire Airways Limited.

Today, the airline is a leading carrier in the southern hemisphere, where it serves 4 dozen destinations and has a fleet of just under 100 planes.

Air New Zealand is part of the Star Alliance, together with Lufthansa, Thai Airways, United Airlines.

In the 1990s, Air New Zealand has experienced severe financial problems, also being half owner of Ansett Australia, which went bankrupt due to lack of funds, inability to modernize fleet and adapt to the new market conditions. Air New Zealand has already overstretched itself, has expanded so much that it could not ensure enough capital injection for the Australian carrier. Air New Zealand had severe losses when Ansett went bankrupt.

After the even, Air New Zealand has relaunched itself and is a successful carrier today.
