@AvWeekScho The dilemma for many Pacific Island nations is that they can’t afford their airlines, but they can’t afford not to have an airline, says George Faktaufon (Association of South Pacific Airlines) #CAPASummit.

@AvWeekScho .@FlyAirNZ CEO Greg Foran says Air NZ has a strong domestic operation, and he sees the opportunity to grow it by another 20-30% over the next few years. #CAPASummit.

@AvWeekScho Foran also reiterated Air NZ’s interest in having zero-emission aircraft replace its Q300 turboprop fleet in the late 2020s. As an interim step, it hopes to be able to purchase a zero-emission aircraft to trial on one route within next few years #CAPASummit.

@AvWeekScho Following the govt announcement, Air NZ says it is hopeful the late April date for non-NZers will be reviewed and brought forward to earlier in 2022, based on progress with vaccination rate.
