Kia Ora, Welcome to Virtual Air New Zealand

New Schedules System

[10/Aug/2014] We have just kicked off the process of re-engineering the vANZ flight schedules admin mechanism in an effort to improve the timeliness of updates to schedules to ensure they are as realistic as possible. Please join the forum discussion and make your voice heard before we begin to implement the changes.

Virtual Air New Zealand is a Virtual Airline based in New Zealand, emulating the operations of the national carrier. We have a large fleet and numerous local, regional and international destinations. Whether you're a novice pilot or more experienced, we have a flight and an aircraft for everyone. Fly over 4000 flight legs on the Air New Zealand Domestic & International Schedules using our custom ACARS client either off-line in your own time, or online real-time with VATSIM.

We operate a full and current Air NZ Timetable giving you a broad range of choices. We also have a large fleet of aircraft ranging from the Dash8-Q300 & B1900 short range turboprops, through to the Boeing 747-400 & 777-200/300 long haul jetliners.

If you're interested in flying for vANZ please read about us, check out our Operations Manual for joining conditions, before filling out the application form. Be sure you fully check out our site before deciding if vANZ is the right airline for you.
