China, NZ airlines agree to share codes


China and New Zealand have agreed to change their 1993 air services agreement to pave the way for their airlines to have code-sharing agreements. Transport Minister Annette King of New Zealand met with Minister Yang Yuanyuan of the Civil Aviation Administration of China to discuss the new agreement. King said the new code-share agreement will boost tourism and business travel between China and New Zealand. There were 114,000 visitors to New Zealand from China during the first quarter of the year. Last November, Air New Zealand launched direct flights from Auckland to Shanghai. The airline plans to increase the service from three to five flights a week starting in November.
