Air New Zealand has announced it will be adding flights to Norfolk Island from Brisbane and Sydney.

People taking flights to Australia will soon be able to travel on to one of the islands off the coast of the country as Air New Zealand announced it would be starting a service.

The Australian government has made the decision for the carrier to provide a new service to the island, situated between Australia and New Zealand, to the cities on the Australian mainland.

Commenting on the news, Air New Zealand Group general manager for Australasia Bruce Parton said he was delighted his company had won the tender.

“Air New Zealand will now be flying five days a week into Norfolk Island from either Australia or New Zealand, with services on Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday,” Mr Parton added.

Some people could be tempted to take flights to Australia after Rodney Harrex, general manager for the UK and Northern Europe at Tourism Australia explained it is possible to get a taste of the country during even a short holiday.
