Air New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Christopher Luxon says New Zealand is already a popular destination for visitors from this region and the new direct route will encourage even more tourist activity:

“Air New Zealand’s new service is significantly quicker and more convenient than current indirect options. New Zealand already welcomes around 36,000 visitors a year from the Taiwan market and we’re confident a direct link will grow numbers further. Providing a non-stop service to Taipei will also enable more Kiwis to explore this destination. Taipei is a culturally diverse city renowned for its food scene, lively night markets, traditional temples and busy shopping streets – all crowned by the Taipei 101 skyscraper that dominates the city’s skyline. Beyond Taipei there are nine national parks offering nature experiences and activities such as hiking and biking as well as beautiful beaches.”

It's great to have another options for flying between Taiwan and New Zealand!
