Unscheduled landing for Air NZ flight

07 December 2017

Under their joint venture alliance that took effect in January 2015, the two airlines will continue to operate one daily return service each on the Singapore-Auckland route, with a third service operated by Singapore Airlines during the Northern Winter season and Air New Zealand during the Northern Summer season.

The airline is cancelling and rescheduling some worldwide flights due to the incidents.

Flight NZ30 left Auckland for Buenos Aires at 8.21pm, but returned an hour and a half later as a precaution due to a "possible engineering issue", according to an airline spokesperson.

Air New Zealand will cancel six global flights and retime others between 7 and 10 December to accommodate urgent maintenance on the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines that power its Boeing 787-9 fleet.

Kuwait had been suspended by FIFA since October 2015 for government interference in the operations of its football association. December 22 but details of the fixtures will be finalised at a meeting of the Gulf Cup Football Federation on Monday.

The New Zealand Transport Accident Investigation Commission (TAIC) is looking into two recent 787-9 flights that were turned back after takeoff after problems arose during the flight.

"Our investigation team is working closely with the airline, Civil Aviation Authority, engine-manufacturer Rolls Royce, and our colleague agencies in the United Kingdom and USA". From October 2018 the airlines will increase to three daily services operating a combination of A380, Boeing 777 and Dreamliner 787-9 aircraft.

Meares said they were satisfied that the company was doing the right things to ensure the travelling public's continuing safety.

The day before on Tuesday 5 December, passengers got a fright when an Air New Zealand plane began to malfunction on its way to Japan. In addition to this, the latest available information on any schedule changes will be published to the Travel Alerts section of the Air New Zealand website, an airline statement said.
