Air New Zealand announced today that in the second half of 2019 it will start trialing a non-stop service between Invercargill and Auckland.

For regional travellers in the South Island looking to connect with Air New Zealand's international network the trial of a non-stop service between Invercargill and Auckland will be welcome news.  The new 2 hour flight will be Air New Zealand's longest domestic flight and a significant timesaver for travellers who might otherwise have been transiting via Christchurch or Wellington (or driving to Queenstown).

The trial service will operate five days a week, departing Invercargill at 6.00am and arriving in Auckland at 7:55am.  The Auckland-Invercargill service will depart at 7:35pm.  The expected schedule will therefore be:
