The airline will fly four services a week between November and March 2019 – departing Adelaide at midday on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Between 18 December 2018 and 29 January 2019 this will increase to five services a week with an additional return service on a Tuesday.

Air New Zealand first launched the Dreamliner on services between Adelaide and Auckland in October 2017, using a mix of that aircraft and A320 aircraft on the route.

Air New Zealand Regional General Manager Australia Kathryn Robertson says operating the Dreamliner on all services between the two cities comes in response to strong demand.

"Customers are really enjoying the premium inflight offering available on our Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft so we’re delighted to be able to offer this on all of our weekly services between Adelaide and Auckland over the peak period."

"Our flights to Auckland from Adelaide also connect seamlessly through our Auckland hub onto our long-haul network through to North and South America ensuring our customers receive a premium travel experience throughout their journey."

Air New Zealand was the first airline globally to take delivery of the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner in 2014 and operated its first scheduled Dreamliner service to Perth on 12 September 2014. Today the airline has a fleet of 11 Dreamliner aircraft.
