Kia Ora, Welcome to Virtual Air New Zealand

787 joins the vANZ fleet

[6th/Sep/2014] vANZ are pleased to welcome the Boeing 787-9 to our fleet. The entry into service date was originally planned for 2010, but by October 2011 deliveries were scheduled to begin in 2014. Boeing is targeting the 787-9 to compete with both passenger variants of the Airbus A330 and to replace its own 767-400ER. Like the 787-8, it will also open up new non-stop routes. The 787-9 flights have now been added to vANZ flight data base for those with Captain rank or above. For schedules details and further info see the forum discussion.
