Air New Zealand is the national carrier of New Zealand and is based in Auckland. The airline dates back to 1940 when its predecessor Tasman Empire Airways Limited (TEAL) was formed. It has operated under its current name since April 1965.
Since March 1999, the carrier has been a member of the Star Alliance, which enables it to provide better connectivity to passengers. Air New Zealand underwent a business transformation at the turn of the millennium that was focused on treating the customer as the top priority.
Its commitment to safety earned it the Airline of the Year award in January 2014 by the safety and product rating site AirlineRatings.com.
Passengers in the Middle East may make an Air New Zealand online booking from Abu Dhabi to destinations in Australasia, the South Pacific, Asia, Europe and North America.
